    Yeah , I've seen the tiger/lion videos a few years ago..

    Was also interesting to see that lions we're out of their league v. Tigers..

    But would also pay to see Stipe Miocic fighting an athletic 11 year old child.

    Dehydrate and die... they would probably live as wild cats do, in small groups.

    A large grizzly bear would make easy work of like 95% of the animals native to Africa.

    Elephants, hippos and rinos maybe not so much.

    I've posted this before and not going to get into detail again but.. the biggest Tigers in the world are a lot closer to the biggest Grizzlies weight wise than you seem to know.


    Look it up. Tigers are a totally different class of bad motherfucker when talking about bad mother fuckers. There's footage of them killing everything in the open/wild from Crocs, to Bears.


    If in their territory, they will fuck with anything. Anything.

    And black bears are nothing to sneeze at either. They are agressive as fuck.

    The average Tiger vs the average Grizzly would be a more formidable match up but if a Kodiak bear enters there is zero chance a tiger is winning.

    Male Kodiak bears average at around 270-600kgs. I love Tigers and they are definitely one of the top predators but they cannot hang with those bears.

    Bullshit. Those fights were in confined spaces where the big cats athleticism is limited.


    Mountain Lions fight Mother Grizzlies in the wild and walk away all the time because the Cat is too fast and athletic.

    Kodiak bears are grizzlies from Kodiak Island. They are the same thing.

    I thought they were more closely related to the Polar Bear?


    I mean, a Lion and Tiger are both kind of the same too. But there's a reason the names separate them so you know which you're talking about. They aren't exactly the same.

    Also about bear and big cats

    In a fantasy Bear-in-africa situation i can see packs of lions kill them and eat them
    With 1 or 2 male lions doing the muscle work and females as support

    1v1 Bear v tiger already happen in Siberia and the result is that in direct fight the bear fuck the cat
    Tigers get bullied away from theyr own prey by the bear (ironically there tigers do the same to wolves)
    It happen tigers ambush bears at times, but not full grown males

    The Syrian brown bear survives in the middle east so I see no reason it couldnt survive in africa

    Grizzlies have less food available and are more aggressive toward humans but yeah they are the same

    I'm pretty sure they are the same thing, I may be incorrect but I don't think I am.

    The reason for the difference in weight is the fact that they have a constant and steady supply of salmon on that island and it's rather easy for them to hunt.

    They are like the fat, lazy powerlifters of the bear world.

    Grizzlies won't fuck with a mature Bull moose, so I doubt they would even try fucking with an elephant

    Bears would do better in mountain areas where gorillas live rather than a grass plain.

    Yes there used to Bears in Africa, but we killed them all a long time ago. The Bears that would do the best in Africa are the smaller species either spectacled or sloth bears.
