Lions are the ruler of the fields. Tigers rule the wilderness. In any case, eye to eye, which would win? 


All things considered, we should talk size first. Tigers are heavier, weighing as much as 800 pounds to the lion's 550. In any case, the two felines aren't so unique in size.


You may recall from secondary school wellbeing class that muscle gauges more than fat, which clarifies the tiger's additional pounds. So it appears to be that the tiger would have an actual favorable position over the lion. 


However, incidentally, we have some chronicled information to add to this guess, as well. In antiquated Rome, the tiger-lion go head to head wasn't remarkable. In 1959, a peruser asked the Spokesman-Review this inquiry, and the paper, thus, asked William Extensions, the custodian of distributions at the Bronx Zoo.

Whereas the lions are more, 'I will simply pound you and play with you.
