Lion Wins nearly all the Lion vs Tiger Fights

by Yousef
(Kuwait)

I don’t agree at all with you…it seems that you show so much wrong information. And you believe the Chinese who fabricated so many video tapes to prove that the tiger is the winner..BUT actually from expert’s and trainer’s facts, the lion wins by a minimum of 95% of the time, when a healthy, fully grown lion and tiger fight each other.

To explain why, here is my argument:

The lion is at the top at the food chain eating 40kg of meat at once; the tiger eats 32kg only.

Lion’s bite at 2152 newton; the tiger at 1859 newton. The lion’s front height is 1.23m, tiger 1m (the front is more important in fights).

The average lion’s weight is 197 kg, tiger’s average is 183 kg. The largest lion ever found was 1100 lbs, while the largest tiger ever found weighed 857 lbs.

Even most of the largest tigers in the world (Siberian tigers) do not exceed 217 kg on average, while most of the largest lions (African) it is 229 kg. The lion’s length can reach (body + tail), 2.5 + 1.05m = 3.55m, while for the tiger it is 2.2 + 1.2 = 3.4m.

Muscle mass is about 67% of the lion’s body, while it is only 60% of the tiger’s body (muscles are more important in fights). The lions and tiger’s teeth are almost the same length but lion ones are a little bit thicker.

The lion has more power, stamina, aggression and braveness because the lion’s body has a higher testosterone hormone level than the tiger (this hormone is responsible for more stamina, anger, wildness, power and ferocity).

Lion’s blood has a larger number of red cells than tiger’s blood (almost double)! The lion’s speed can reach 45 miles per hour, tigers can reach up to 38 miles per hour.

Lions have manes around their heads which panic any rival including tigers.

Plus, to add to all the above you should know the following: in the old ages in Europe (Roman) they used to say that the lion was an unbeatable beast. They used to push tigers to fight lions not the opposite! Also lions used to fight and defeat large elephants and brown beers (the largest in the world) while tigers used to run away from such fights!

In Korea and China, they know all the above facts, but they worship tigers because there are no lions in Asia except in the Gir forest in India!

Once in Korea, they brought one large African lion from the Tsavo area and they put this lion against the largest Siberian tiger. They had to record this fight. But after 3 mins of fighting the lion mauled the tiger to death. Then they entered another 4 tigers, one after another and the result was that the lion mauled them all! Then on purpose they injured the lion; made him bleed and shaved his mane and then they entered another 2 tigers together! to fight this lion and after a strong fight the tigers manage to kill the lion!!

There are so many occasions in the past ages, and in the modern age told by experts about a single lion managing to kill 2, 3, 4, 5 tigers one after another! but there are no stories saying the the opposite!.

So my friend don’t believe fabricated video tapes and clips made by asians it is all fake!!..In India, the land of the tiger, one of the most famous names is SINGH!…Singh means LION…so they know in themselves who is the king and stronger!! Once in a zoo in USA, there was a lion and a tiger who grew up in this zoo They put these two animal in one cage and they threw 100kg of meat to both (this quantity is enough for both). Do you believe that tiger did not approach the food till the lion finished eating and left his place, then the tiger came to eat (by instinct the tiger knows who is the boss)!!

Above all you should know these facts: the lion is a social animal that lives in a pride, he is braver than the tiger because he knows that if he is injured the females will take care of him, while the tiger is a sole animal afraid to go into a fight because if he got injured he would keep bleeding til he was dead!

That’s why lions always fight face to face with no fear. But tigers hunt and fight by stealth, hunting smaller prey than the prey of lions.

Also lions start fighting from day one of their lives, while tiger cubs start from the 4th month. Experts always say that tigers show a real fear when confronted with lions. Lions also fight for a longer fighting time than tigers. Lions regularly fight the lion, 2 at once, 3 at once and sometimes 4 at once, but tigers never fight more than one tiger at once! Most of the cultures in the world worship lions (this didn’t come from nothing)!!

Experts say that the brown beer living in America is the only animal in the world that can challenge the lion!

Plus..living in dense cold forests, lots of water and trees allover, such environments in Asia make the life of the tiger somehow easier than the lion’s life in Africa. Because the habitat helps the tiger’s stealth to hide to hunt and the prey has little chance to escape because of huge trees. But the lion that lives in savannas and in a open wide landscape with higher temperatures, less water etc. it makes it very difficult for the lion to hunt because the prey will see the lion approaching and have enough time and space to run away. Such a situation forces the lion to apply more effort to hunt. More effort makes the lion’s body more stronger!.

The lions life is much more miserable than the tiger’s life. This is why lions bodies have more muscles mass – having better fighting skills, eating larger meals than tigers and why they sleep daily more than tigers! While tigers have more fat on their bodies!

And this is why lions are more aggressive, ferocious, strong and powerful than tigers.

By the way, the Sebrian tiger which is the largest of all tigers has less stamina, power, aggression and fighting skills than other kinds of tigers. This is a fact!

In the FACE-OFF discovery channel show, a large number of experts studied many numbers of animals’ characteristics. They put all this information into a computer program, and then the computer analysed the results of the fights between 2 animals (one of the fights was between the lion and the tiger)…the computer concluded that the lion is the winner!

Basically, by instinct, the tiger often does his best to avoid fighting the lion, while the lion always shows no fear at all from the tiger or other beasts.

The only thing I agree with you on is that the tiger is a better swimmer than the lion.

Finally, scientists and circus/jungle/animal experts agree that in a fight between a healthy, full grown lion and tiger, in wild, the lion wins 10/10, while in cages the lion wins 8/10.

I’ve been doing a web search on the above subject for the last 3 years,and I contacted several experts around the world, and gathered so much information. I then screened the information to exclude the fake information. After all this, I got the pure facts, which I have detailed above to you my friend and believe me I have more to tell, and all of them favour the lion to win against the tiger with a minimum 95% success rate.

wrong idea NEW
by: dr moein

hi
i am dr abolmali and i study about animals around the world for many yearsT i am iranian and we have one day both of this animals(lions & tigers)Although we lost them for ever and it is sad for us، in reality they dont be ever in one habitat Because lion is live in hot wear and tiger in cold wear، this show lion has more stamina when run by the time and have more speed Because they are Lighter than more of the Race and type of the tigersT.
this is not true about size of this cats you say. the red amure is the biggest cat in the world and secend is the white amure and these two are in syberia and the three big cat in the world is africian lion.
this two type of tiger are strongest tigers but slowest between all kind of tigers.
the power of jaw in ilon is more but the power of Impact of the arms in tiger is in highest level.
about fear you say it is true Because the heart of the male lion is stronger Because he have prides and they take care of him but only in which lions they are leaders on theyre group not the other single lions. but if two kind of these cats fight with each other one on one that depends on type of weather and place they fight.
if the male lion be bigger than tiger he wins but if tiger be bigger tiger will win.
the weight and size is important in this kind of animals and cats. if they had to fight to death and they be in on size and weght we can say Result will be Equal and they both have %50 – %50 chance to win.
you never can say tiger or lion can win more of this kind of fight.

Article needs reference
by: Anonymous

Hi
I just want to clear my head on this matter. I have read several articles about lions and tigers but no article except this one shows that an average african lion is even bigger than an average siberian tiger. Infact I have so far read just the opposite with the lion being smaller than the bengal tiger on average. Also, I found a paper showing that tigers bite force pound per pound is second to only jaguar among the big cats and they have the strongest bite overall as they are the biggest cat with more body mass which is logical. Even the lion fans agree on these matters because it is the truth. If you want to alter these information than show us some reference. Otherwise it will be a laughing stock. But it is very well written. Good job.

this article sucks!
by: Anonymous

you seem to have no proof or references provided. many of your facts are also seriously flawed. who told you that the biggest lions are bigger than tigers? it seems to me that you know nothing about animals. if you believe that a lion would prevail over a tiger, than support your arguments with valid reasons.

The article doen’t make sense
by: rajesh

Hey dude,

You are very good at knitting the stories. Why can’t you write some stories? Your article is completely false. I don’t know who told you singh meant lion is boss. If you don’t agree with the fact that tiger wins against lions put it in a proper words but do not mislead other people. The examples that you have given clearly shows that those are stories created by your own. I’m sorry your arguement doesn’t make sense.

Article does not support arguement
by: Rajesh

Hey dude,

The article seems to be worth reading but the facts that are mentioned does not support the fact that lions win against tigers. Your arguement is based on the fact that lion looks bigger and stronger than tiger. The look hardly matter when you are fighting. It’s the flexibility of the body that makes the difference.

The lions are not as brave as tigers. Its only because of the body size the other animals are scared of. You will get to see hundreds of videos on youtube where you see a lion struggling to fight agianst other animals. It can’t run fast, it can’t jump like other animals. Its body doesn’t support fighting. How many times do you see a lion hunting? Its the lioness that hunts. Where as the tiger & tigress both hunts. The tigers are so brave that they charge elephants as well. Watch the kaziranga tiger attack video, you will come to know what tiger is? If you still doubt read jim corbett, kenneth andersons’ books to know how strong the tiger is? Please read books about indian jungles written by british hunters and then read your article once, then you don’t agree with whatever you have written.

Yousef thanks for this article. It is appreciated. I think, though, that you should provide a full list of references as you provide a lot of so called “facts” but nothing to support the

Lion Wins nearly all the Lion vs Tiger Fights — 5 Comments

  1. lion is the king of the forest.no doubt in it.after that any animal.but some of them said tiger is more cruel than lion.

    • This is an article by a visitor to PoC who lives in Kuwait. He is probably writing from what he has seen and read over a period of time. It is not a scientific paper. Thanks for visiting though.

  2. It would be nice to have your comparable sources information on the anatomy of these two magnificent cats. Aldo records shows a great amount of large tigers and male Lions. The majority of sources place the tiger as the largest cat. But lately, some serious data revisions were made. It revealed many old tiger’s weight records were found unreliable. Some sources now believe in average that the Bengal tiger and the male African lion are comparable in size. There is also the Siberian tiger. Some are quite big, since they live in a cold environment therefore they have a greater amount of body fat. But again, not all Siberian tigers are larger than the Bengal tigers. To me, until there are more proof about the new Lion-tiger weight data, the tiger is still the largest. In nature, aggressiveness and fighting skills is more important than size anyway. In these domains, I must say male Lions are especially gifted. About South Korea, the Siberian tiger is their emblem. Now almost extinct in the wild, there were tigers in China. So there may be there, willingly or unconsciously some form of patriotic influence on their part. About the Lions and food, if there are Lions and tigers, keepers will always feed the black mane lions first. Yes its a fact, no tiger will stay around a black mane lion at feeding time, even if there are two of them. For a great part I tend to agree with you. I am a cat lover in general, I would have liked to know and be able to get to your lion-tiger anatomy sources. Thanks for all your work, a lot of time was spend. It was a very informative article to read and I really enjoyed reading you.

    • Hi DD. You’re right about weights. There is a lot of misinformation about tiger weights, for example. It is hard to weigh a wild tiger even if it is dead. Some of the wild tiger weights are 100 years old and they were less precise in those days.

      The whole lion versus tiger debate is just a bit of fun (as far as I can tell) and the vote by a large number of visitors to this site is pretty much split down the middle. You may have seen it on this page.
