THE POWER OF A LION ( PANTHERA LEO)

THE POWER OF A LION ( PANTHERA LEO)
Lion is considered one of the most ferocious of the hunting animals of the jungle. Lions are mostly concentrated in the jungles of Africa and also are present in a smaller quantity in the form of Asiatic lions found in India. On an average the weight of an adult lion can go up to 500 pounds or 226 kg.the maximum speed at which a lion can run to catch its prey is usually up to 80 km/ hr. Lions are social animals who live in groups which are called as a pride. lions may roam in pride of up to 30 members. Usually, the lionesses hunt and provide for the pride.

Pros
The biggest and the most crucial plus for the lions is that they are social animals. they live in a group and also hunt in a group which gives them a bigger advantage over the Tigers. They enjoy the advantages of living in a group
  • They have excellent speed while hunting and a group of lions can together hunt the biggest of the preys very easily
They can run at the maximum speed of 80 km /hr when hunting a prey Lions have an average lifespan ranging from 12 to 18 years in the wild.

Cons
*Living in a group also has certain disadvantages like increased competition for survival within the group.
  • Lions tend to have a slower speed than the Tigers while hunting and they cannot maintain the high speed for a longer duration.
*It cant stand on its back legs like a Tiger and cannot match the ferocity of a Tiger in a fight.

Lion is strategic

Lion makes use of entire family if need be. And he is more stronger with the power of family. He does make use of the female and male in the family. And often they are more likely to attack at all possible outcome. I have seen that in most of the discovery videos.

top of the chain

I am not sure but I think lions are naturally higher up the ranks than tigers in the animal kingdom and that they are really the rulers of their area which is why they are considered the king of the jungle. I think tigers are cool too but in this case I'd have to vote for the number one or the leaders of the pack because I'm sure there is a good reason why they are where they are in their place in the food chain which is at the top.

Say what? Lion is the strongest.

King of the Jungle my friend is the title of the Lion. And it is a no brainer that they are the best.

King of the Jungle

Lion, it is for me. I believe that lion is stronger especially that they are in groups. There is, after all, strength in numbers. Tiger lives alone that if he gets cornered by Lions then, he is done for. No family or company to rely on.

King of the Jungle

I would go with lion. It is the king of the jungle. With its mighty and strong looking appearance, there is no doubt why ut is called the king of the jungle. I always get amazed by its abilities and I like it when it is sleeping. They might be scary but they are still cute when they are sleeping.

Lion

It is called The King of the Jungle of a reason. Lions have so much physical strength and power that you wouldn't even dream of messing with them.

King

When it comes to animal symbolism, the lion has always signified the highest power but as well as the highest responsibility. The jungle is a very wild place and having a leader that keeps a pack together is indeed the stronger.

I'll go with lions

When all is said and done, you don't get the titke of king of the jungle by being second best. Of course the tiger has some points up on the lions, but when you put everything together, the lion wins. Scientists themselves call lions the king of the jungle. We all know how much scientists work at being right.

Lions for me, roaming around the wild. The alpha male looking out for his pride. Each and every lion plays a role.

Tiger at its best.

Tigers are more attacking. They do not give up on their prey easily. They chase them and hunt them down. Lions give up easily and they are lazy. They cannot run for long distances and always depend on female lion for food.

Eye of the tiger

Lions versus Tigers can be a hard and crucial debate, if we look at there physical attribute I would say the tiger has a slight advantage over lions. If a lion and a tiger will fight one on one the terrain can crucial factors if they fight at a jungle where large trees are present a tiger's mobility can be a deciding factor of the battle. And also tigers can see in the dark, this kitty cat has built-in night vision how cool is that!

And it is being said that the tiger is more Ferocious than lions!

How come with all those Nature clips expectally for Natural geographic have no space for a feature or maybe they have not recommend one yet . This decision would have made this conversation easier.

I watch a lot of National Graphic shows and I saw that Lion really overpowered all the living things in the jungle. Especially in a savanah, the Lion seems to be the most avoided animals.

I don't think I have ever watched a documentary where the lion was killed by another predator. I think they are actually powerful like that. If one has the heart of a lion it will be a problem.

Interesting comparisons between these two. The saddest thing is that they have such a short lifespan. Not many people know much about the tiger. It's interesting to find out that it has better night vision, which means that it can attack even at night. Remember tigers also climb trees, so they seem really dangerous. Lions in my Country have always been though of as really majestic. They dangerous and have been known to kill and maim people. However they are amazing creatures to look at.

Honestly, I have no idea of which is stronger or more powerful, but what I do know is that I'd be petrified if I saw either of them in the wild! I think both are strong and potentially dangerous too.

What should you do if you see a lion or a tiger? Should you just stay still and play dead? I don't think I can outrun them both so maybe I'll just stay still and pray..

I can think of what I will readily do if I'm confronted with these animals infact one can even collapsed before even confronted by them. It can really be a hassle for anyone.

I would go for the king of the jungle, lion. It's superb look makes it more superior than tigers. We do know that animals use their appearance to make the enemy retreat or be threatened. I'm not sure about the strength but the lion wouldn't get the title as the king of the jungle with no reason.

Panthers are good, they have speed and the tactics. But brute force of lion is harder to take over. Because lion at the end wins purely with family power and brute force. So one has to understand how that works out. I think on that note I'd say lion is lot better to consider that.

I agree with you. Lions are just so powerful that even their presence makes you stunned and scared. Well, both are scary, but Lion is definitely on a different level.

Both animals are good in hunting and besides it's their nature but I think lions are more advantageous because because they attack by group and they have a pack. It's easier for them to soo away other animals since they are by group compared to tiger

The Power of a Lion vs The Power of a Tiger: Those two are really good hunters in wild in which you can really feel afraid seeing them there.In terms of comparing the two, for me i will give my favor to the lion which is entitled of the "the king of the jungle" the advantage of this kind of wild animals is being in a group or family when they attacked, it is their nature to be with them all the time and the power that make them more strong.

They have differences and that's what makes them far more impressive. When it comes to power I think lion wins but there are things or characteristics that tigers have but not present in the lions. I love how tigers has the power of night vision, keen to smelling and good hearing capabilities and that's the ability of tiger that's not in lion's characteristics. Since tiger prefer to be alone, they can lose as lions has group and they can protect each other.

I love the physical appearance of tigers. Their prints are just so beautiful yet scary. But with lion, its presence is just so powerful that it's dubbed as King of the Jungle of a reason.

Yea, when it looks to looks it seem the tiger looks better and maybe less scary but lion always look terrific and scary all the time. I can't just stand the lion even on screen.

In one documentary video in National Geographic, I was surprised to learn that the tiger could climb a tree and wait in lurking position for the prey to arrive. With the speed in running, the tiger has the advantage over other animals including the lion. In comparison of the strength it seems that the lion pales against the strength of the tiger not only with the speed but also in ferocity. Now I wonder why the lion is the king of the jungle when the tiger is more powerful.

Tigers are more proactive. They hunt in teams and do not give up on their prey unless they hunt it down. Lions are lazy predators and are not good chasers. They depend more on female lions for food and are vulnerable to attacks by other animals groups.

I love the Lion alone as the one and only king in the jungle. I know other lions can't stand it. Well, it really mostly good to see the lion from afar or else one will have his or her self to blame. I love the braveness of the lion than a tiger.

Both the lion and the tiger are two of the five species of the genus Panthera, which are part of the great family of felines. The other three are the leopard, the jaguar, and the snow leopard. I love lions because in addition to being called "kings of the jungle", they are one of the most sleepy species since they spend around 13 hours a day sleeping.

I choose lions because of their great strengths and power. They can take down even bigger animals than them. They are also cool.
