The lion can be considered the king of animals and one of the most feared cats in the world, but it cannot be denied that the tiger also has a lot of majesty. The two are part of the big cat team, also made up of leopards and jaguars. All are characterized by being carnivorous and quite intrepid, but among the tiger the lion, which one is stronger?
These two cats have fought a few times in the past, especially in Rome, in the most glorious times of the Colosseum. There, African lions and Asian tigers fought for the entertainment of commoners, almost always in deadly fights. In more modern times, the encounters of the two big cats were also recorded in zoos, resulting in events that can traumatize anyone.
However, if the two animals were free and without any intervention from men, it is unlikely that they would actually fight. Both the lion and the tiger have their own characteristics, whether negative or positive. However, the lion is naturally more aggressive than tigers, much more used to fighting than its relatives: tigers can back off if they feel necessary, while lions barely release their victims.
According to biologist Craig Saffoe, the two are almost the same size and weight, so these aspects would not bring much advantage or disadvantage for one of them: the main factor is behavior. “Lions are social animals, tigers are not. This is why lions are better at fighting, since they are children used to playing fight with other members of their group (and later for control of the pride), while tigers can go years without a similar encounter, ”says Craig.
However, tiger attacks are considered more fatal, as they always specifically target the neck, while lions "play" more with their prey. This behavior can be decisive in a fight. So if biologist Cragi gambled, he would say a tiger would win the match. On the other hand, other experts prefer not to doubt the supremacy of lions. And you, do you think which of the two is the stronger?
What is your opinion? Who would be the winner? I will read your comment.
