One of our most frequently asked questions on our social networking sites and on our
tours is, "do big cats like tigers and lions purr?" This is a longstanding question and
there is quite a lot of debate over this topic within the scientific community. For many
species the dating is lacking or inconclusive and no definitive statement can really be
made. Approximately fifteen species of wild cat can purr; this includes lynx, servals,
bobcats, caracals, ocelots, cheetahs and cougars.
Some say that the greater cats--lion, tigers, leopards, and jaguars--can roar but are unable
to purr. While some say that lesser cats, which is every other species, including domesticate
cats, can purr but not roar. Each of these theories revolves around the hyoid bone, which
connects the tongue to the roof of the mouth. In the greater cats this bone is flexible,
which allows them to roar. But this also prevents them from purring. But in the lesser cats
the hyoid bone is solid, which is why these cat's can't roar, but they can purr. Snow
leopards are an exception to these theories because they have a flexible hyoid bone, but
they have never been heard to roar.
Others believe that lions, tigers, leopards and jaguars can purr, but they can only do
so on exhale, which then creates another debate about what exactly a true purr is. Some say
that a true purr can only be produced when the cat inhales as well as when it exhales.
While everyone knows that cats purr when they're content and happy, many people are unaware
that cats purr for other reasons such as, during traumatic moments, when suddenly and
violently injured--even at moments near death a cat will often purr. Another interesting
fact is the measurable Hz of a cat's purr lies between 25 and 150 Hz, which coincidentally
is the same sound frequency range that has been documented to stimulate bone growth and
healing. Some experts even suggest that purring releases endorphins that reduce pain while
healing proceeds.
So to summarize: yes big cats do purr. The largest species that we know of is the cougar.
Cheetahs also purr, but cougars can grow to a heavier weight. Some say tigers, lions,
leopards and jaguars can purr but only while exhaling. We know they're capable of making
other noises including roaring, chuffing, and...miscellaneous. But none of our keepers
have heard any of our greater cats purr... This topic will probably be debated for years
to come. So...what do you think?
