Hello to all lion vs tiger fans, here are some reasons that attest that a male lion is a winner in 9 of 10 fights (comparing African lion to any type of tiger even Siberian tiger).
In a fight a tiger goes only for a neck bite or they always punch the face. A male lion has a mane which protect him from a neck bite and can dodge many swipes of a tiger just as mohhamed ali did it always!
A lion has the swipe technique too but with a difference. A lion’s forelegs are much stronger than those of a tiger. Althought, a tiger may have more muscles in his back legs.
But the very important point is this: a lion tries not only to land some bites into the neck, but almost tries to bite over the back legs (spine), which immediately leads to invalidity of his opponent.
You can see this technique in many videos. Because of this, after some seconds the tiger retreats to save himself from injury to allow to to continue to hunt.
And now some facts about length, height and weight:
— A wild Bengal tiger may reach up to 250 kg in the wild.
— An african lion (male) can reach this too or even 270 kg in the wild.
Only the Siberian tiger can surpass an African lion in weight but this only due to a fat layer and not having more muscles.
— There are African lions that have the same length as Siberian tigers.
— And finally the height of an African male lion can only be surpassed by the Siberian tiger now and then.
In a fight between an African male lion and siberian tiger(male)the tiger has no stamina due to his weight consisted only on a fat layer.
After a few seconds it would try to retreat but if there is no way to escape it will be killed by the lion. Lions fight for almost more than 30 minutes. The heat of the African weather makes the lions more resistant and gives them higher Stamina.
So many animals have been wiped out at our hands…
