If you have to bet your last dollar on which will come on top, which would it be in a physical fight?

Lion or Tiger? :eager:

Tiger. AFAIK, they're generally larger than lions.

I think the accepted wisdom now is that although anything could happen in individual fights, all things being equal the male Lion will win more often than not despite being outweighed by the largest of Tigers. Male lions spend their entire time patrolling and fighting other lions, often to the death (rarely instant but from grave wounds). Apart from shagging and eating, that is pretty much all they do. They rarely get involved in hunts. Fights with other males are relatively common so they have a lot of experience of it in their lives. The mane of the male lion is larger and thicker to stop other lions getting to the throat area easily.

Tigers are more solitary and both genders are very good at hunting. Confrontations will other tigers are rare and serious incidents rarer still (no females/prides to attack for, just territorial overlaps).

Tigers > Lions for hunting. Lions > Tigers for fighting.

And this is why Federer > Nadal. Err...because.

Ahh well, I like your way of looking at it. My big brother told me the same too. :nod:

I am 50-50 about this, but it seems that most are in favor of the tigers. :(

depends on if it's a female or male lion.

if it's a male lion, then my bet is on the lion because their mane protects their jugular in fights against other lions/enemies. if it's a lioness, then the size and amount of fur a tiger, male or female, has would definitely win them the fight.

more fur = harder to get to the skin.

But the lioness are the ones who do majority of the hunting. :la:

tigers hunt as well though, and they hunt by themselves most times so the hunting argument is kind of null and void in this situation. u x u;;

however, environment is a huge factor as well.

This has the great potential to be a Japanese game show. They've already done it with insects, why not move on to higher mammals?

My money is on the tiger, because tigers look cool.
