Hi Mukul,

1. Mostly, Lion vs Tiger questions I always favour Tiger, but here I favour the Lion. It's because the South China Tiger is the smallest species of tiger except for the Sumatran. The lion here has the slight size advantage as well as being better protected by fur.

2. The Komodo dragon only has one lethal weapon here, it's highly contagious bite and it would have a lot of difficulty laying one on the much agile cheetah. Moreover, unlike the crocodile, it's neither protected by an armour. So the Cheetah has the victory here.

3. Peccaries can be fierce fighters and they are also the largest animals of the four so it will gain the victory.

4. Strangely, I believe the Dhole would win. Though a lot smaller, they can be formidable fighters for their size. The greyhound is a much leaner canine and it doesn't bring much here except for size.

5. The komodo dragon would win if it bites the anaconda and runs away, leaving the snake to die it's own death. But in an ambush, the snake would be successful in putting it's coils around the lizard and suffocating it to death. But the snake has more chances of winning.

6. I must say that the jaguar is pound for pound, the strongest feline but the bear is way too big and powerful for it to handle in a face to face combat. In an ambush though, it has more chances of winning.

7. Wildebeest. It is much bigger and stronger than the buck, despite the latter's huge horns.

8. Ocelot. It is slightly larger, has better arsenal and faster reflexes.

9. The hyenas would win. The lioness isn't built for this and is outnumbered. The hyenas have strength in numbers, a lethal bite and durability.

10. Out of these dogs, the German Shepherd is the strongest so it would win.

11. The Eurasian Lynx is the most formidable of the three animals so it has the victory here.

12. In a documentary I saw, the narrator said that even lionesses have to be wary while hunting warthogs as they have been known to even kill lionesses. So the warthog should overpower the leopard.

If the animals are equal in weight:

1. Dhole. Indian wolves are leaner in build and do not possess the Dhole's squat structure.

2. Clouded Leopard. I have heard from somewhere that second to the jaguar, the Clouded Leopard is the strongest cat pound for pound and for it's size it has a powerful build. Moreover, it's canine teeth are the largest in proportion to it's size.

3. Moose. It has a more muscular built body.

4. Blackbuck. Better arsenal and more agility.

5. Cougar. They have a very powerful combat friendly bode as well as more powerful extremities.

6. Elk. Better weaponry.

7. Gray wolf. Great stamina, speed and a powerful bite.

8. Grizzly bear. Better speed, muscular body, weaponry and also better protected by fur, fat and muscle.

9. Asiatic black bear. Though it is a leaner subspecies, it is much more carnivorous and aggressive and has the victory here.

10. Caribou. Better weaponry

11. Elk. Same as above.

12. Serval. Has the best arsenal and the quickest reflexes of the three.

Speeds of the above mentioned animals:

1. Leopard: 55-60km/h according to a show.

2. Cougars has roughly same as Leopard.

3. I've heard Caracals can attain speeds of 65km/h.

4. Red fox: 45-50km/h

5. Baboon: 65-70km/h

6. Giraffe:55-60km/h

7. Spanish fighting bull: 37km/h

8. Grizzly bear: 45-50km/h

9. Snow Leopard: 35-40km/h

10. Clouded Leopard: 60-65km/h

11. Ocelot: 55-60km/h

Lastly, my favourite animal is the domestic dog.

Hope that helped.

I can answer all types of questions related to animals and their face offs. If needed I can also give sufficient detail. I prefer questions related to land animals but I can also answer questions about aquatic animals. I cannot answer questions about invertebrates as they are simply not in my interest.


I have been studying animals since childhood, and have since gained a lot of expertise in this field. I am also famous in my workplace for knowing a lot about animals.

I recently passed my A' level exams, scoring 3 As and 2 Bs.
