This battle between the two beasts or the king of the forest had happened a lot. We know that the lion is the king of the savanna and the tiger is the king of the forest. When these two carnivorous beasts fight, what happens? Let us continue to see until the end because we will reveal scientific facts about this.
Several incidents of fighting between lions and tigers have occurred in the past. Historically, the Romans pitted African lions and Asian tigers at the Coliseum, this was done for entertainment and pleasure against the Plebeians. In the decade of the 20th century, a fight between the two giant cats was also staged. Then in several other moments the same thing happened. Where the encounter of these two animals across species at the zoo has accidentally attracted a lot of attention from visitors.
What Would Happen If a Lion Fought a Tiger?
In the history of ancient Rome, the tiger is an animal that is considered to be more courageous and strong in fighting. Likewise with fights in a cage, usually the same way but only occasionally. They have their respective strengths, and of course the result of their battle depends entirely on several things, not absolutely the tigers win the battle because they both have their respective strengths. This is influenced by their history, fighting style, and physiology, says Craig Saffoe, a biologist.
He said that “but if I have to put money on it, I will give profits to the tiger”.
How Much does Lion and Tiger Weigh
There are several reasons why the tiger should win every battle. First; Big tigers have a body larger than any lion. Second; usually these species have comparable body sizes. Saffoe said that adult male African lions and adult male Bengal tigers weigh an average of between 400 pounds to 420 pounds or 180 kg to 190 kg.
Lions have manes and this is very beneficial for them in fighting. they claim that the lion is an animal for fighting. Saffoe says that the mane on lions can protect their necks during fighting. In addition, the fact that lions are social animals, live in groups and even prey on victims together, tigers are not the case. Tiger, in his whole life he just walks alone and preys on his own victims without any beautiful events like in the life of a lion.
This social trait actually gives lions a weakness in fighting when compared to tigers. The University of Minnesota, a research center, says that the lions form a coalition of twos or threes against territorial rivals. But tigers only do it themselves, now from this difference the instincts of these two animals are much different.
Tiger Vs Lion, Who Is The Winner
Saffoe said that when he saw the tiger was very aggressive in battle, he was looking for its skull to kill. But the lion is not like that, he hits his victim but sometimes plays more like a domestic cat. This is because they are fighting in coalition. While the tiger cannot be, it is always alone and fighting and living. This may indeed be created by your day as an independent animal and you should not depend on your life on other people.
Tigers have cruelty, their battles are aggressive, this is what really influences them to always excel in every battle, even with lions.
Saffoe says that the ranks of big cats are: Tigers, jaguars, and lions at the very top. Then it follows the lower ones, namely leopards, cougars, snow leopards and cheetahs. The most interesting match is between the Bengal tiger and the male jaguar. Both of them had good size, temperament, speed and strength.
Leopards are very agile and wild animals. “Don’t count leopards out. Small in size but can fight agile, small but strong and capable. Who knows this leopard is more aggressive and can beat a tiger or lion.
