Did You Know? Of all the cats, lions have the strongest forequarters, which is why a lion can deliver such a deadly blow with a front paw - hard enough to break a large antelope's back. Even as babies, lions have huge paws, giving an early indication of how fearsome these creatures can be when fully grown.
