Then delete this pointless thread. Your ***** ass lions arent worth ****
in a combat between lion and tiger, the "lion invariably wins chiefly because of his mane, which serves both as visor and coat of mail, protecting both face and throat.
The african lions mane:

Bears dont strike each other in the head, they push each other down, and has no defense against a neck bite:
Show me a case where a lion has his neck torn out, there isn all that much. The bears hide is not immune to attack:
After watching this huge old grizzly on trail cam, he showed up again this time with a very serious fighting wound.
The lion is protected in all of these areas:
Again, the bears fur is 3-5 inches long:
The thickest skin for polar bears are not at the neck but the belly:
Polar bears have black skin under which there is a layer of fat that can measure up to 4.5inches (11.5 centimeters) thick.
The lion is not attacking the belly, he is attacking the neck, and head.
The tigers has no protection at the neck, they can have a big body, but whats at the neck? Nothing:
Look at the size of a 600+ lb tigers neck, it isnt even the full size of Clayton rosairs stomach area, now look at his lions neck area, its three times the size of claytons stomach area and twice his whole bodys size:
In many parts of that continent his dimensions considerably exceed those which have been mentioned as the average in the preceding part of this notice, the length being sometimes more than nine feet, and the height nearly five.The mane of the lion is not confined to the upper part of the neck, but surrounds it on the sides, and even on the chest below. It is very closely set; and the hair of which it is composed is, in the largest specimens, more than two feet in length.
Even a asiatic lion who has small manes have been measured up to 18 inches long:
Gheer " Forest, Kattywar, had mane eighteen inches long
We are talking about 2 feet of protection vs 5 inches. Thats 4x as more protection.
When a lions mane is struck, it only effects the maned area, and the hair falls out not flesh:
If a lion struck a bear with his paws and razor claws he would be pulling out huge amounts of flesh.
- 5 inches of fat (pain can still be felt)
- Not immune to lacerations, claws and bites all over the body
- Not durable against hard blows
- Only 3 inches of of fur
- Is highly vulnerable to neck bites and being disemboweled.
- 2+ feet of mane at the neck and underside
- Lessens the effect of blunt force
- Sheaths his skin from claws and bites in the maned areas
- Makes him look bigger
- Protects against bites, claws, and entangles the claws giving him the advantage.
Bears might be more durable over all, but when it comes to the weapons and defensive anatomy, the lion is more durable where it counts. If you think a grizzly bear or polar bear is bigger than a lion at the neck area, show just one photo of a bear next to someone and having their necks bigger than that persons body. The bears lower half is where all his weight is, not his upper body. Lions are built larger in the front, bears are built larger in the bottom portions.
