Several Myths About Lion and Tiger

.
Myth 1: The lion has the front stronger than the tiger. The fact is that; the lion has slightly more robust shoulders than the tiger, and the tiger has more developed legs than the lion. But overall the tiger has more mass than the lion. Even pound to pound, the anatomy of the tiger has an advantage over the more robust front of the lion.

Myth 2: The tiger hunts larger prey. The fact is that; Both cats hunt prey of similar size, and both can go for prey even larger from time to time. In some areas these big cats specialize in hunting certain types of prey. In Nagarahole, national park in India, the tigers prefer to hunt the large Indian bison.


 
Myth 3: The lion has more strength in the bite. The fact is that; pound for pound, the tiger has more strength in the bite, although the difference is not very large.

Myth 4: The tigers are more ferocious. The fact is that; There has never been such a statement put any scientist, or animal observer. This is a statement without any basis, both felines show similar ferocity (of course, ferocity is not quantifiable) when you are in a fight.

Myth 5: Lions have bigger heads. The fact is that, on average, a lion has surprisingly the same head size as an average Bengal / Siberian / Indonesian tiger. The head of the tiger is only a little, wider and shorter, allowing it to have a stronger bite.

Myth 6: The lions only fight, the tigers only hunt. The fact is that; nomadic lions hunt regularly and with great skill, even resident lions hunt from time to time. On the other hand, the tiger fights, often to death, with other tigers. The tigers fight so often that about 30% of the tigers die due to territorial fights. Tigers also fight with leopards, bears, wild dogs, elephants, etc. The majority of tigers vs. tigers and lion vs. lion fighting ends after one of the fighters escapes, in both cases can result in serious injury or death.

Myth 7: The lion has better fighting techniques. The fact is that; The tiger shows better fighting "skills". The tiger moves faster than the lion, can use both front legs at the same time to hit, is more agile and faster than the lion.
