Lions vs Tigers
Name: Sam N.
Pound for pound who would win in a fight between a male
lion and a male tiger. Female lion and Female tiger? Have there been any
know scientific documentaries on this matter?
I would put my money on the tigress which I understand is the mistress
fighter of all the cats.

Tigers are more independent fighters while lions hunt in groups. Female lions
groups do most of the hunting, while the males do little in comparison.
Male tigers would be a safe bet in one to one contest with male lions. Female
tigers are probably the most outstanding of the lot. Well, since this will
never be demonstrated, I supposed someone could argue.
