I know everyone that has posted here has written that the lion is the stronger and therefore the winner, but I have to tell you the truth. The tiger would win, and everything on this site is copied and written on numerous sites that I have researched. See original Lion vs Tiger article.

Personally, whoever I saw would win, I would accept that, and I understand why you all think the lion would win.

The lion is the "King of the Jungle." First of all, it doesn't live in the jungle, except for the ones in the Gir Forest.

Also, they are not as big as the tigers. Maybe their roar is louder, but I have to tell you, the roar has nothing to do with strength.

I just wanted to add another fact about lions and tigers. The lion can only swipe with one paw at a time because of the weak hindquarters. Also, the myth about the tiger's stronger hindquarters and the lion's stronger forequarters is not true.

The tiger has better hindquarters, and the forequarters are the same. People may say that the lion has a more powerful swipe, while the tiger's fast jabs mean nothing, but rarely does the lion actually land the swipe on the tiger.

Either the tiger is continuously hitting, or it is easily dodging the attacks. And the continuous jabs cause the lion to fall down. I have seen it in numerous videos that people have posted. Also, the mane doesn't really protect the lion. The tiger easily crushes the thin fur and hits the throat, killing the lion.

I am not at all trying to insult the lion. It is a great animal, and was the first one named the king of beasts, but I'm sorry to say that it has been proven otherwise.

This is a great article, and it goes with what all the others that I have read say.


Hi Sam.. thanks for the support. You are the first to back my assessment.

But as you infer, my assessment is based on careful research and thought from excellent sources.
