I'd agree with that..in a book I read it was claimed that in pre-industrial times before logging&hunting the untouched northern forests were full of tigers that were larger than the 400 or so left in the Russian Far East&Manchuria today..the Caspian tiger further west was also a large subspecies in the 300kg category before humans hunted them to extinction for sport...these northern tigers would have reached adulthood easily surpassing 300kg..more abundant large prey,pristine habitats,no hunting...these would have been the real supercats..unlike the genitically engineered and overweight ligers that some people like to portray as supercats..
