That dosent mean lion's cant reach any weight the tiger can, here is what site's like wiki try's so hard to conseal, the fact that they gave a 300 pound advantage on wiki speak's in how they just wanted other's to think there's a leverage, which in fact in a whole speice's tiger's only average around 430 pound's as adult's, an lion's can match the heavy hitter's as well...
Tiger weight’s show they avearge no bigger than lion’s
The bengal tiger is thinner an lighter than the lion
Hewett (1938), Inverarity (1888), Baker (1890), Buton (1933, 1948), Hornaday (1885), Meinertzhagen (1939) and Sanderson (1912) shows an average of 422 lbs, not far from the 420 lbs mark, isn't it?

Well since I cant edit the list, I'll just add it in this way...but I found aorund 5 more lions that reached the 800-900 pound ranges so, it looks like the lion is catching up, I still feel its more common to have a tiger maintian being hevier more often, it just makes sense, #1 when they kill something they can sit down an eat it all themselves an not have to fight over rank who gets what out of the dead animal which sometimes most dont get to eat that much, they will have to wait there turn until the brutes are finished, unless they kill an elephant, which still some prides get to be as big as 30, so thats only a few days worth. Also the heat of africa is one of the hottest places on earth, so they have there fat striped off them into pure muscle, while bengals live in swampy areas an Siberians need the extra fat to survive harsh winter blizzards, but all in all lions can get just as big as any heres that extra 5 lions that made it pass the 800-900 pound range to add to the list...
