Lion vs Tiger

Who won more in the past?

Eh everybody, so being this was one of the biggest dual’s of earth’s top predator’s who do you think won more in the past, the eye of the tiger, or the King of the beast the Lion?

Please only think of these as a hypotetical situation if you voice your opinion an be respectful to other’s who dont agree, an I’m searching for more of people’s knowledge of past event’s that way there’s no parley on animal conflict’s of geralizing the topic, but more of just learning of these 2 majestic beast past conflict’s for educatonal purposes only.

I’ll share some for everyone who hasent any detail’s on subject so far…

Also saying they were edited an spliced in favor of the tiger, which if there were more than a few male fight’s recorded, why werent they ever shown.

For the next couple of minutes each struggled and strained for an advantage, but Bobby’s hold was so tenacious that they only succeeded in twisting a little. With the cameras continuing to grind and getting nothing but a little harmless tug of war… Energy spent, the exhausted Bobby tried to roll away from Caesar, but Caesar’s hold now was as firm as Bobby’s which had been on his mane. Seeing this turn in affairs, I dashed into the cage. Already Caesar’s jaws had crunched Bobby’s neck and when I got there Caesar was shaking Bobby’s limp, bloody head and throat from side to side. Bobby’s eyes were turning starey. He was dead and it was only two minutes since I was keenly sorry that I had done it, but in thinking it over I became convinced that my part had been negligible. The lion is frequently the superior; he doubtless would have been the winner in this case no matter what I had done.”

  11. The lion also is protected around the neck by the heavy mane, which is an advantage. There is one instance I remember where a full grown lion and very large tiger engaged in combat, by unforeseen chance of course. It was when the John O’ Brien Show had its winter quarters in Philadelphia and I was connected with it. “A lion and a tiger were in a compartment cage, with a partition between. In some manner this partition was battered down in the night and the two big fellow’s got together. They had probably been issuing challenges to each other and promising what they would do to one another if the chance came. When morning arrived we found the two in the lion’s cage, the tiger dead and the lion all chew and clawed to pieces, but still full of fight.”

    NEW YORK. Nov. 2. -Tradition that the tiger is a better animal then the lion in a fight has been disproved as Sr. Nicholas Garden, where one of the biggest striped denizens of the Bengal jungles is suffering from rips and tears inflicted upon him by one of the late king of the South Africa forests. The press agent did not give this story out. Probably he would lose his job if he had, for Bostock is careful to suppress any news tending to show that his animals ever exhibit sanguinary instincts when in the arena. The two big cats in question were brought together several days ago to become familiarized with each other for purposes of a contemplated act in the show ring. The tiger walked nervously up to the lion and began rubbing his nose over the latter’s haunches. A low growl was the response. But when the tiger inserted his teeth in the lion’s mane, Leo uttered a roar, unmasked his ivories and crouched. The tiger retreated a few feet and then sprang high in the air, intending to come down on the lion. But Leo deftly side-stepped and when the tiger alighted he grabbed it by the head. A twisting of the teeth and a large section of the tiger’s face, including one eye, was gone. The trainers and attendants now tried to separate the beasts, which for several minutes rolled over and over each other, snarling, roaring, biting and scratching. Finally they were separated. The tiger, mutilated and bleeding, cowered in a corner, while the lion was defiant in another.

-My teammates and I were transporting a male African Lion into a cage neighboring a Bengal Tigers cage in Kenya. There was a small opening in between the two cages for intermingling of neighboring animals. It was supposed to be closed at the time but someone forgot to close it. The lion sprang from the transportation container through the opening and mauled the tiger of similar size. We tranquilized the lion but it was too late. Two days later, the tiger died due to fatal wounds. It was a very one sided fight where the lion spent much time chasing the tiger.

57. But to get back to the lions and tigers, apparently it is a very hard thing to put lions and tigers together. I read that scientists say that lions have the strongest forelegs of the big cats, and they have a knack to being more ferocious. Even though tigers are heavier and longer, it’s ferocity that determines a winner. Lions have all the equipment of a fighter with huge forelegs, the mane, and the stocky body. Because of the mane the male lion is a poor predator. He however has a fierce desire to defend his territory. They have been known to kill or drive off rhinos. The tiger is nervous around a male lion and cat trainers have said that this has caused problems in zoos and circuses.
The same trainers have mostly said that the male lion appears to have no fear of the tiger even in a large group of tigers. The big cat trainer Clyde Beatty lost 12 tigers to lions and didn’t lose a single lion. He once had a tiger and lion fighting in a live performance and tried to stop it he couldn’t and the lion went on to maul the tiger to death in front of all these people. He also had a lion he called Sultan the First and he beat ever male tiger he ever faced. There are 3 films that have been made about fights between a male lion and male tiger and in all three the lion won. ‘Lion-Tiger Fight’, 1930’s, Castle Films (16 mm) is a short documentary about a fight between a lion and a tiger which occurred during an expedition to capture some tigers in the Gir region of India (The only place where you can find lions and tigers living together).

I’m not going to research these cites to determine if they were fair contests. But I would have relied on Clyde Beatty’s observations even without them. I think it’s pretty clear that male lions are evolved for the primary purpose of killing rivals and predators. Tigers are much more solitary and more likely to flee than confront. Trapped in a fight with a lion their instincts probably work against them.

However, to be fair about this, I wouldn’t give a lioness a snowball’s chance against a tiger.

The Tigers have clearly won more, since they play 162 games a season while the Lions only play 16.

Wow it’s cool you know about Clyde beatty, but I would too give it a less chance of a lioness winning but it’s not impossible, I have presented around 7 account’s in that list of lioness’s holding there own an killing female an even male tiger’s, there’s a few more I know of I can show you of minor incident’s where a lioness tore up a few tiger’s, but I too would more favor the tigress over a lioness, about 5.5/10 for the tigress…again it’s not exculding the fact that there are record’s of female lion’s killing male tiger’s.

An I wouldent want to emit Bia’s ness but male lion’s have just to many variable’s an leverage’s in the wild to have a tiger as a threat, even 1 on 1 it’s still more of 8/10 for a male lion vs a male tiger. But I found maybe around 30 account’s of tiger’s killing lion’s but 80% of those 30 consist of male tiger’s killing female lion’s an the male’s of the 20% had no detail’s on there status. But so far compared to data alone, if there’s only around 30-40 account’s of tiger’s killing lion’s an a ittle over a 100 of lion’s killing tiger’s as I shown above some occaision’s the lion killed multiple tiger’s so again, by data alone it can only be fair to place it as 8/10 time’s a lion would win, the only way you’d be able to change that, is you’d have to match the 100 account’s to bring it to 50/50.

But with out data, an just throwing thing’s out there, I myself would like to think of it as fair game of 50/50 Prime male lion an Prime male tiger vs.

Hmmm, that’s just to bad there’s such a small window of editing time…oh well’s I guess here we have to be percise in each post, because it’s like Vegas…

What’s said on straight dope’s forum, stay’s on straight dope forum.

XD XD

a quick perusing of the cites shows that lions win a lot more often.

Indeed, though I’m confused, 90% of the site’s I have researched hasent provided the main stream society with the lion’s half of information, I only see site’s like Wiki, wordpress, jackjacksonj, difference provide very poor data for the lion’s side an cast there vote for the tiger winning upoun there very little data, it would seem so majority hint a repatwa of Bia’s implemation’s, I dont know but it would seem that way.

I mean how can can they say tiger’s won more in the past when 90% of the historical artifact’s potray’s the lion winning, there’s at-least a 100 account’s I presented in that 67 list of modern battle’s having the lion the winner an even in the past of ancient time’s they portrayed the same thing like here…

Here’s a few documented Historical Artifact’s an Sculpture’s that are mostly in
museum’s, portraying the lion winning against the tiger, an each has a back story if you care to look them up and apperntly they would have to have seen the incident, to etch it or sculpture it an these are from different people from Rome, to India, to Britain, to China all portraying the same thing the lion having the winning course of 50-1,000 year old historical artifact’s here…

So again, I dont know where they can give a 8/10 for the tiger when the data contradict’s that 100% it’s more of 8/10 for the lion not the tiger. Hmmm, but again I guess people like to hide the truth in order to intice other’s.

But like I said, with out data of like those^^^ I would give it a 50/50, but the data is proving of a 80/100 for the lion.

where are these polls? i think it’s just conventional wisdom that the average tiger outweighs the average lion so…

That’s debate-able, but the I’m researching the more I’m finding out that the media has poor crdibilty an false claim’s, but I belive that they are roughly the same size’s, the tiger can just maintain being hevier more often. 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

So, OK… what’s your point?

I just stated my point…it was why is it 90% of the site’s out there have flase an random data? Is it Properganda, or is it just bad studying, I cant pin-point it but why wasnt any data presented for the lion’s side?

Wouldent you think that is un-fair if I showed you a Boxing man’s record of like 10-0 representing the tiger an the lion’s record 0-10…wont you think the average person would have just sided with the tiger just because of what you presented? Uh Huh! I would think so, but why no attempt to even keep the playing field fair? Again I only sense a purpose of intice-ing, not by educational purposes of what’s factual.

Do you want an example of what I’m talking about? Gladly…
Now wiki stated in the catagorie Expert’s 3 source’s,
#1 John Varty- who said…
I’ve seen tigers crunch up a full-grown leopard tortoise like it was nothing. And lions try, but they just don’t get it right. If there’s a fight, the tiger will win, every time."

Now, did you know that John varty had 4 genration’s of his family owning a game reserve in africa that took tourist around an shot lion’s? I would think that’s a hell of a thing to mention before you can assest who’d he favored, an secoundly here’s lion’s doing somthing he say’s they cant…

You see^^^ Some expert John varty is… an goes along with the other’s they alibied as in Big cat rescue, they said the team of big cat rescue, but it was only answered by 1 worker not the whole team which is way more than 300 people, an they all dident agree with that conclusion only the person who answered it, an still that person gave no specfic detail in what was the advantage. Same goes with china’s source of rewilding tiger’s only one person said the same thing.

Now, look at how poor there credability is, they have been debunked easly showing they are not creditable to answer such a question, when why did they only mention expert’s for the tiger’s side? When in reality there is way way more for the lion’s side, you wanna see some? Gladly…

35. Interesting read on Dr.Sc Giuliano Russini view on Lions and Tigers.

…African lion presents phenomena of aggressiveness which, contrary to what is thought render it more dangerous in the wild than the tiger and more difficult to manage in captivity, as observed by the zoological biologists… This caused by overheating corporeal overheating phenomena, is in fact a handicap in case of prolonged fights, drawback not found in the lion who, as they say, “will struggle up to the death”.Same can be said for the fighting techniques, which all stand in favour of the Panthera leo ,accustomed, as it is, to face in the savannah a great variety of preys and competitors, in comparison with the solitary tiger…

41. Pound for pound lion’s are way stronger than tiger’s, this lion look’s bigger but it’s only because of the mane, both lion and tiger are about the same size, yet he still hit’s harder, also chasing off the competition as they usually do, due to dominant trait’s of the male lion…also proving a lot of expert’s correct as tiger’s only throw wildly not accurately, in this fight the tiger misses 6 time’s an mostly all other fight’s tiger’s always’s miss more than 50% fighting a lion, here…

Let’s count them 1st lunge, barly nips the mane…which lunge’s cost energy…2nd lunge, misses which cost energy…3rd lunge misses…which cost’s energy, By doing so the lion is only using superior fighting tactic’s of dodging because they hardly clinch as tiger’s do, This video prove’s the other video^^^ that tiger’s have very poor accurate swipe’s more of just swinging wind mill’s along with the end every swipe is absorbed by the mane as the tiger must reap what hit’s his head area…

47. But to get back to the lions and tigers, apparently it is a very hard thing to put lions and tigers together. I read that scientists say that lions have the strongest forelegs of the big cats, and they have a knack to being more ferocious. Even though tigers are heavier and longer, it’s ferocity that determines a winner. Lions have all the equipment of a fighter with huge forelegs, the mane, and the stocky body. Because of the mane the male lion is a poor predator. He however has a fierce desire to defend his territory. They have been known to kill or drive off rhinos. The tiger is nervous around a male lion and cat trainers have said that this has caused problems in zoos and circuses.
The same trainers have mostly said that the male lion appears to have no fear of the tiger even in a large group of tigers. The big cat trainer Clyde Beatty lost 12 tigers to lions and didn’t lose a single lion. He once had a tiger and lion fighting in a live performance and tried to stop it he couldn’t and the lion went on to maul the tiger to death in front of all these people. He also had a lion he called Sultan the First and he beat ever male tiger he ever faced.

I think it’s time for you to publish.

To me it’s not important who won more, for I love both, but I would like to know that thing’s are kept fair an factual.

This tiger was captured in India and went against a lion after being in captivity for only few days. Don’t tell me that these few days changed the tiger’s behavior in which it could not deliver a fatal neck bite.
It was the Tiger’s fight and he knew it. He sprang at the staggering Lion, took a fearful chop on the nose without flinching and set his teeth into the African’s hairy throat. They wrestled desperately, and the Lion’s heavy mane saved him from suffocation. Great mouthfuls of long coarse hair catching in the Tiger’s teeth not only preventing him from getting a death grip, but so interfered with his with his respiration that he had to release the hold, where upon the Lion swatted him with a tremendous uppercut and sent him tumbling twenty feet away.

“Down sprang Caesar, determined to seize the offensive, but before he could do so, Bobby had battled his way through Caesar’s paws, grabbed his mane so stubbornly that he couldn’t move. For the next couple of minutes each struggled and strained for an advantage, but Bobby’s hold was so tenacious that they only succeeded in twisting a little. With the cameras continuing to grind and getting nothing but a little harmless tug of war… Energy spent, the exhausted Bobby tried to roll away from Caesar, but Caesar’s hold now was as firm as Bobby’s which had been on his mane. Seeing this turn in affairs, I dashed into the cage. Already Caesar’s jaws had crunched Bobby’s neck and when I got there Caesar was shaking Bobby’s limp, bloody head and throat from side to side. Bobby’s eyes were turning starey. He was dead and it was only two minutes since I was keenly sorry that I had done it, but in thinking it over I became convinced that my part had been negligible. The lion is frequently the superior; he doubtless would have been the winner in this case no matter what I had done.”

If so, it is conceivable that a single male lion attacked by a pack of hyenas could reduce injury with the help of its mane. Manes protect males in interaspecific in other species. It may additionally confer advantages by limiting wounding in the neck region.

The mane plays an important role in the lion’s life.

Male lions are larger than females and possess a voluminous mane which contrast with the sleek pelage on other parts of the body… The distinctive colors and sizes of manes may also help animals to identify individuals. An important secondary function of the mane is one of protection during fights. The dense mat of hair absorbs blows and harmlessly tangles claws in a part of the body towards which most social contact is directed; bites too, may leave an opponent with a mouth full of hair rather than skin.

There is no direct evidence, but if we examine the probabilities in the case of a confrontation between the two some inferences can be drawn.

The film showed that the tiger was at an immediate disadvantage. Tigers use a throat grip as their primary means of killing and the lion’s thick protective mane prevented the tiger gaining a hold on the throat joint. On the other hand, the tiger had no special protection, so was vulnerable to attack. In this fight, the tiger was killed.

I believe I’m fully qualified to state, as I’ve had them both on me. I bear the teeth marks of a lion that shut his jaws tight on my legs. But it isn’t the teeth of the big cats trainers fear so much. It is the claws, being hooked, tear out the flesh and sinew as they are withdrawn. When a lion goes at a trainer he starts right towards him, with no subterfuge, mouth open and tail as stiff as a poker. A tiger cringes and crawls until he makes his spring. In a fair fight it would be hard to guess which animal would come off victor, and much would depend, I think on the one that got the first good hold. The lion also is protected around the neck by the heavy mane, which is a huge advantage.

That said, tiger by a mile. There is no way a lion could beat a tiger in a cage match. My cite is some Mutual of Omaha stuff I saw in the 1970’s plus observations in more than a few zoos and TWO different circuses. There is simply no way a lion is going to open up a can of whoop-ass on a tiger. The only things that can beat a tiiger in a cage match are a liger which is half tiger and half lion but kick-ass bigger than either of them, a polar bear, or a gladiator with a lover waiting. That is the real answer.

Let me ask you this. Which of those two took out Roy from Siegfried and Roy? There is your answer right there.

C’mon, “new’s paper”? This guy can’t be serious. Did he win a bunch of apostrophes–sorry “apostrophe’s”–in a raffle or something?

tl;dr

“Bring 'em Back Alive” Clyde Beatty was once very well known. He was a long time animal trainer and had many observations about big cat behavior. But almost all of that was with captive animals, as is the case with many of your cites. These cats would have likely been overweight which may be a big disadvantage to the longer bodied tiger. Keeping captive cats well fed was a safety measure. Clyde’s appraisal of tigers was that they were quicker than lions, and better coordinated being able to use both front paws in an attack while lions would fight ‘one handed’. But as I mentioned before, and noted in some of your cites, a lion is naturally more ferocious and dangerous, very territorial, and evolved for the purpose of attacking it’s foes. Lions also have a protective mane, and are more compact and densely muscled. Although neither animal is extremely intelligent compared to the brainiacs of the animal world, they were apparently clever enough to escape often. I recall Clyde found tigers more clever and dangerous to humans. Tigers also are at a disadvantage because they are more ambush hunters than lions are, who have to chase down their prey more often. They have just evolved differently.

One gun magazine long ago said the Romans in the Coliseum never bet on lion:tiger matches because the tiger almost always wins. Reason given was the tiger is a better two-pawed fighter while the lion delivers single jabs and hooks. But seeing so many Tarzan shows, I realized this wasn’t true. The lion is a two-pawed brawler, even on his back (better than any ugly-faced MMAer.)

But then, tigers tend to be bigger. The record for a biggest cat from the wild was a Siberian tiger (975 pounds?) This, however, is not an absolute record. The Guiness cited a number of cage-fat lions and tigers exceeding 1,000 pounds.

lol My bad, I just cant seem to shake it off, it’s kinda like a must have already…I’ll try an not include so much… maybe. lol

But I was intreseted in the fellow’s accumiltion’s of 2 circuses the tiger has won above you, I know of 30 the tiger has won, but that still isint anywhere close to the 100 the lion has won, so if I beat you up in the octagon 7 time’s an you only win 3 what make’s you think other’s would favor you as the better fighter? I dont know, but you are entitled to your own opinion an I comend you for it.

But I too would give it a 50/50 in the cage match, but in the wild not so much. The fact is lion’s live either in Pride’s or coalition’s. The biggest Pride ever recorded was 9 brother’s that shared 22 female’s…So the tiger still has to oblige by the Golden rule as any other predator that face’s the Pride…which is if the whole pride see’s you your ownly chance is to run, an even that’s not a garentee. There are solitary rouge lion’s but 80% of the time lion’s live in Pride’s or Coalition’s like these…

You see^ lion’s live in coalition’s an I proved with a little more than a 100 account’s 1 on 1 a lion has already been able to kill a tiger, so in just sheer number’s a tiger in the wild of africa dosent fair well at all in a lion’s territory, unless this is like some sort of super tiger stealth ninja, that pick’s off the Pride one by one, but in africa it probably would be alot more easyer to conseal the lion more so the tiger, the tiger would be crouching down in a “gold” bush an be like…wait for it…an the lion would be walking pass an say Hey! Werido! You know I can see you right!?! The tiger…Hoh!?

XD XD

Here’s a few Gif’s to pic’s to video’s showing that the lion is usually the agressor an the more dominant animal in small encloser’s…

Word an text of recording’s is creditable of course, but nothing beat’s video pal, an to my knowledge there isint a single video of a tiger killing a male lion not 1, while there’s 3 for the lion, #1 is Gir forest, #2 The big cage with Clyde Beatty, #3 is That asian zoo where the teen’s mauled the adult tiger. An the kicker is there’s a little above 10 account’s of lion’s killing tiger’s in the wild of India, while there’s no record’s of such for the tiger winning a clean account documented like the Velar account where a wild lion killed a wild tiger at the Gange’s river in India.

Again I really am just scratching the surface here, who know’s later when I get a up-dated PC I’ll be able to quadruple the amount…just a theory.
