Who Would Win? Lion vs. Tiger by Jerry Pallotta

My 6 year old son is completely obsessed with the books in this series. He has requested to own every single one. This specific book is very good, and while my review is generically referring to all the books we’ve read in this series, I unreservedly give this specific one 5 stars. Very well done.

The premise is engaging enough: what if two equally matched and ferocious creatures met and engaged in a fight? Who would win?

I love that the illustrations and maps are detailed, accurate, and realistic. I appreciate that it isn’t just a hypothetical story, but the book is filled with facts about each animal’s strengthens, weaknesses, abilities, and habits, and then asks the reader to make a guess as to which animal they think would win in a fight based on the information given.

But then the hypothetical fight story at the end is always exciting and riveting (without being bloody or gory).

Even I find these books interesting and exciting to read. But finding something that will get my six year old to read over and over and love it every time? That is priceless.

Lion VS Tiger - Tiger VS Lion - Aspin

Historically, a comparison of the tiger Panthera tigris versus the lion Panthera leo [3] [4] has been a popular topic of discussion by hunters , [5] [6] naturalists, [7] artists, and poets, and continues to inspire the popular imagination. Generally, in terms of dimensions of the body and weight, the modern tiger [19] and lion [20] are the two largest species of the genus Panthera and the cat family. Variations in opinions and measurements exist for them, especially across different populations or subspecies.

Tiger vs. Lion—Who Would Win?

This is not a natural situation and it is a hard call but I think the tiger would win. The bear is the most powerful but is not a natural predator. It tends to scavenge for food, eating berries, vegetation and dead fish it might steal from wolves. It would rarely have to attack another large predator. Lions, like tigers, are big game hunters with effective teeth and claws but hunt in packs. Tigers stalk their prey alone.

In this weekly series, Life's Little Mysteries provides expert answers to challenging questions. This ultimate cat fight has happened more times than you might expect. The Romans pitted African lions against Asian tigers in the Coliseum, to the rip-roaring pleasure of the Plebeians. Offhand mentions in the historical record imply that tigers usually came out on top in ancient Rome, and modern fights in captivity typically go that way, too — but not every time. Lions and tigers each have their strengths, and "the outcome of a given fight completely depends on the individuals: their history, fighting style and physiology," said Craig Saffoe, a biologist and the curator of great cats at the Smithsonian Zoo in Washington, D.


This question originally appeared on Quora. In the circuses of Ancient Rome, exotic beasts were commonly pitted against each other. The contest of the lion against the tiger was a classic pairing and the betting usually favored the tiger. At the end of the 19th century, the Gaekwad of Baroda arranged a fight between a lion and tiger before an audience of thousands. The Gaekwad favored the lion, and as a result had to pay 37, rupees as the lion was mauled by the tiger. The Amur or Siberian tiger is the largest subspecies of the Panthera genus, known to weigh up to lbs kg , while large African lions weigh up to lbs kg. Average weight males is kg for African lion,

  1. At the end of the 19th century, the Gaekwad of Baroda arranged a fight between a lion and tiger before an audience of thousands.

  2. Lions are the king of the plains. Tigers rule the jungle. But face to face, which would win? Well, let's talk size first. Tigers are heavier, weighing.
