Lion and Siberian tiger size comparison!!!

how would pictures taken from a different distance make any difference?

Your kidding right? A picture taken farther ways will look smaller. Up close larger. Those photos could be zoomed and cropped for all you know.

Am i kidding? Are you?

If both pics are scaled to the proper sizes (or the same size), wouldn`t the distances the pictures were taken at make little difference? I was the one who scaled the pictures, to the sizes of the average lion and tiger. For example, you can take two pictures of me...one from 5 ft away, and one from 10. If i scale the second picture up to the size of the first, wouldn`t the distances the pics were taken at then make no difference?

The largest African male lion and largest Amur and Bengal male tiger size comparison is likened to this example.

You have a FIRST guy who is 6'5 weighing over 300 pounds, with 26 inch biceps and 58 inch chest.
Then you have a SECOND guy who is 6 foot even weighing over 330 pounds with 20 inch biceps and 52 inch chest.

Who's BIGGER ?

The FIRST guy is BIGGER than the SECOND guy. The SECOND guy is HEAVIER than the FIRST guy.

An African male lion is like the FIRST guy, Amur and Bengal male tigers are like the SECOND guy.

The African male lion is BIGGER than Amur and Bengal male tigers. Amur and Bengal male tigers are HEAVIER than the male African lion.

Well it look's like it's over for the tiger fanatic's of repeating there acciunt's 400 time's in the same list, XD XD Hey Bold champ, Dalen an Leofwin just like I promised I put the account's in {CHRONILOGICAL ORDER!} from the most recent on the top to the oldest going down the list, so by doing it in chronilogical order, what ever is repeated will be flush next to each other, so if you repeated an account you CANT HIDE IT!

“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.”

#36.--{1921}--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.”

#39.–{1902}--Lion kills male tiger, Fort Wayne, 1902
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.

It’s on this site called tiger territory, on lairweb .com here…
#49. 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).
