If these two predators did ever meet in the wild the lion would win as they live in a pride and tigers are solitary. As for the prey table there has been cases of lions killing elephants what does a elephant weigh? Fighting ability lions often fend off hyena from their kills, hyena having a far more powerful bite and probably have far bigger packs than the wild dogs in the story you have chosen. Just a thought.
Please see my Lion Versus Tiger Argument and come back if you arrived on this page first.
Thanks for the comment…Of course I disagree. Mainly because my analysis is far more complete than yours.
The first reason you give as to why I am wrong is that lions work in groups (prides). Yes, but the argument is about whether a single lion would beat a single tiger in a fight. That dismisses that part of your argument.
Yes, there have been cases of lions bringing down elephants I am sure, But they are probably baby elephants and it happens rarely. On average judged scientifically, the tiger’s prey is a little larger.
Yes, the hyena does have a very powerful bite but a leopard can fight on equal terms with a hyena. A leopard is much smaller than a lion. The hyena is substantially smaller than a lion:
We are talking about a one on one fight, which is something that you seem to have not realised. There is no point discussing a pride of lions or a pack of hyenas versus one tiger, is there?
So, I am sorry to say that, in my opinion, you are wrong.
I changed your title from “Rubbish” to one that visitors could tell what it related to. I think that you should have been a bit more polite in your choice of title as your argument is weak.
