Who would win - a cheetah or a lion?
The lion is much larger than a cheetah and would win.
a cheetah because he would cheat

It depends, if it's a short race, you would lose. Cheetah's can run 75 MPH. That's their top speed. A humans top speed is 20 mph, and that was an Olympic runner. I would say you lose. Luckily for you, if the race is about a mile, you have a chance. After running a little less than a mile, a cheetah …will overheat and will rest for several minutes. (MORE)
A jaguar would probably win since lions are pack hunters, and are not as deadly on their own. According to many sources, the jaguar is the second strongest big cat and has the strongest bite. However, a jaguar is nowhere near as aggressive, so it would be a pretty fair match. However, the male lio…n would win because of its mane to protect its neck, but a jaguar would win against a lioness. (MORE)
which ever knows how to fight Edit: In Africa, Water Buffalo and Lions frequently combat one another. The Buffalo is very dangerous, and gives even lions pause when considering prey options. It depends on a lot of factors who will win. Environment, stealth, wind direction, numbers ( of lion huntin…g party and buffalo herd), not to mention the health of the animals involved. (MORE)
if a cheetah was hungry was hungry anof and the lion was died it would eat it.
A Gorilla would probably win. A Gorilla is far smarter than a Lion anyway, and it could pick up a boulder,log,ETC, and can even use it as a weapon. Plus the Gorilla has the strength of 8-10 strong men. The fight will never happen though, as they live in different places of africa.
of course Lion is the winner. because Lion is a predator, they eat animals. So, in this case, Lion would have eaten Giraffe because Giraffe is an animal, and Lion is an egoistic creature. Lion always want to be the ONE. the Chosen One. xD It'd be risky to attack a giraffe, with its long legs and p…owerful kicks, but if a lion were desperate enough, they could do it with teamwork. Also, (mainly to the answer above) the lion would not always win. More than two giraffes could be too hard. So no, the lion is not always the winner. I've seen it with my own eyes. (MORE)
e Before anyone starts whining we need to Determine who wins in the most categories Strength: The lion has larger and more powerful musles then the Eagle. So the winner in this category is lion. Speed: The eagle can reach speeds of up to 160 miles per hour, while the lion can only reach 50 m…iler an hour. So the winner is eagle. Protection: The lion's skin protects it like armor on a tank while the eagle has minor protection. So the winner is lion. Resistance: The eagle can resist a swipe of the lion's paws, but the lion has thick skin which means it can resist more then 5 swiped of the eagle's claws. So the overall winner is the lion. :) (MORE)
Lion easily. male lion weigh 500 lbs and a male leopard only weighs 200 lbs.
lion. ya but the cheetah might get scared and outrun the lion before that. Lion by far. Cheetahs are actually a bit delicate for big cats, although what they lack in brute strength they have in speed. Still, a cheetah would not be able to take down a Lion.
Lions and hyenas most often battle in packs or prides. The net weight of the pack and pride determines the outcome. The group having the largest gross weight usually wins. This means if the combined weight of the entire pack of hyenas outweighs that of the pride of lions the hyenas will win the batt…le. Therefore in a one on one contest the heaviest is predicted to win. Most often lions will weigh more than hyenas so the lion would win. that's an easy question,a hyena wouldn't even react and it'll be dead.lions are 2 times larger than hyenas ad weight almost 4 times more.hyenas might steal linos carcass only when there are only females and even then they'll had to work together (MORE)
a cheetah, in a race, but in a fight a jaguar would destroy a cheetah. If a cheetah cant winn against a leopard thats smaller than a jaguar, theres no contest.
A LOT of proof and evidence. . Tigers and lions are both fierce, powerful, and intelligent cats, each being the apex predator of it's habitat. But to find out which animal would win in a fight, they would have to be compared in many different ways. in this case, we are going to compare the African… lion and Bengal tiger. (The most common and well-known lion and tiger.) I will discuss everything that is important in a fight: their size, strength, jaw force, paw swipe, agility, intelligence, strengths and weaknesses, and of coarse, fighting skill. First of all, the tiger is heavier and overall larger, so it has the size advantage. Though this is certainly not the most important thing in a fight, it is still important. You do not see a house cat beating a German shepherd, because even though cats move faster and more fiercely, the dog is simply much, much bigger. Basically, size DOES matter. But a Bengal tiger isn't THAT much bigger than a lion, so in this case, power and skill are the most important things. Many people think that the lion is stronger than the tiger because they appear to be more muscular. But the fact is, tigers are actually more muscular, their muscles are sometimes harder to see because of longer fur and vertical stripes. The tiger is more similar in build to the jaguar than the lion, and the jaguar is the world's strongest cat (compared to its own size.) A very important feature of strength is the animal's jaw force. The tiger has a wider skull, and the lion's is longer. Animals with wider skulls have a stronger bite, because the force of the bite is concentrated more on one area, instead of being spread out over a length. The tiger's canines are also a bit longer than the lion's, which is very easy to see in photos. As for the animal's paw swipe, this is the major part of the animal's overall strength, and it includes a lot of debate. The tiger certainly has stronger hind legs. They use them to leap great distances and kill prey. But many people say that the tiger has stronger hind legs, but the lion has stronger front paws, which is more important in a fight. Well, actually, the tiger's stronger back legs allow it to balance on them, and use both of its forepaws to fight. The lion usually uses just one paw at a time, not because its arms are stronger, but because it can not balance on two legs as well as the tiger. And if you have seen tigers fight before, you will have noticed the amazing speed they swipe with. It is also thought by some people that the tiger's punches are faster, but the lion's are harder and stronger. The fact is this: the more muscled the animal's limbs are, the faster the animal can move them. So, it is pretty clear that the tiger is stronger. And now, we are going to discuss the most important part of a fight; the animals' fighting skill. A big myth surrounds this field. Many people think that, because a male lion fights for his pride against other males, the lion has more fighting skill. It is also thought that "A lion fights and doesn't hunt, and a tiger hunt's and doesn't fight." This is a ridiculous theory. The world is not all perfect and orderly like that; just because a male lion fights a lot and doesn't hunt much, does not mean that a tiger hunts and doesn't fight much. In fact, male lions DO hunt, and they do so very efficiently. And as for tigers, the truth is this: The average male tiger fights more over the coarse of his life than the average male lion. Tigers fight with other tigers, sometimes to the death, to win the heart of a female. And female tigers fight off hungry males to defend their cubs. The shrinking habitat of the tiger is causing even more battles over territory, battles that both tigers AND tigresses fight in. And there are many other animals that these cats fight with. Lion prides have wars against packs of hyenas, and tigers deal with wild dogs and crocs. But perhaps the most impressive thing is that tigers have been known to attack and kill adult brown bears, animals that lions would not stand a chance against. Tigers and lions fight a bit differently, as well. Tigers seem to use a bit more 'skill' in fighting, for example, keeping their heads back while battling. Lions have been known to blindly charge into battle; it's just the way they fight each other. Unfortunately, this would be a weakness when fighting a tiger, because experts have noticed that tigers think things through a bit more when they fight. Now, let's refer to the lion and tiger's strengths and weaknesses. A key feature in a fight is speed. Being cats, both tigers and lions use amazing speed when fighting. But when it comes down to it, the tiger is clearly faster. Like I said before, if you have seen a tiger fight before, you probably noticed the rapid speed they swipe and throw punches with. This is one of the tiger's strengths. It also has another advantage: accuracy and evasiveness. Tigers are more accurate when they strike, and they are also better at dodging opponent's blows. Note that a lion's mane slows it down during a fight, which is why the agility and evasiveness are the tiger's advantages. And of coarse, there is the case of the lion's mane. The lion's mane protects it's neck from fatal throat bites. This is the lion's advantage. But the thing is, in fights, tigers do not attack with a bite to the throat. In a television show called "Animal Face-Off", the lion won because his mane protected him when the tiger attempted a throat-bite. The problem with this show is that the "experts" think that a cat is going to bring predatorial/hunting skills into a fight. They were wrong. In a fight, both tigers and lions will attack each other's head, face, spine, and legs. And then, there is another thing that can prove to be an advantage: Stamina. This goes to.... Drum roll, please....... The tiger. Reason? Because, as I pointed out before, the tiger fights with bears, and bears have a longer stamina than cats. But as if this were not enough information about lions and tigers, there's more! The fight isn't decided yet! This is probably a very important part in a fight: Which animal is smarter? To decide this, experts would have to consider the habitat and behaviors of these two carnivores. The lion lives out on the open savanna, which is an overall simple biome. Tigers, on the other hand, live in the dense jungle. This is a complex biome, even to look at, not to mention navigate through. The tiger spots prey with his keen eyes in this habitat. The jungle also includes some grassland and open fields, so the tiger has experience chasing prey and fighting to take it down, as well as being an ambush killer. The lion, on the other hand, hunts in a pride. Hunting in packs has been proven to require a lot of strategy and concentration. (Take wolves, for example.) Lions chase down their prey, directing it from one lion to the other, and forming a formation of a half moon, or semi-circle, around it. They have many other strategies to take down their prey that a tiger would never use. However, studies on the big cats' brains have shown that the tiger's mind is a more developed then the lion's. This probably has something to do with their evolution. And one more thing about the topic of habitat and lifestyle: What kind of prey the tiger and lion hunt. We already established that these animals do not bring hunting skills into a fight. But some people speculate that lions are stronger because they hunt huge buffalo, and tigers only hunt deer. Actually, tigers hunt the largest cattle in the world: the guar, and they have even been known to take down small Asian elephants. It takes a whole pride of lions to take down a large African elephant. This is looking pretty one-sided, isn't it? But, there is still one very, very important topic to consider. The animals' courage and ferocity. Courage is the lion's major advantage. It is true that, when lions and tigers meet in reserves, tigers sometimes submit to lions. Male lions can seem more aggressive, and naturally take control over the situation, like a true king. And when they fight, they don't easily back down, they fight with a stubborn desire to win. (This is another advantage) But the reason for this is NOT that tigers are cowards, they are simply trying to avoid an unnecessary fight. When a lion insists on a battle, and the tiger is pressed to fight, the tables are turned. Within the Bengal tiger scientists found a most disturbing ferocity, and when it comes to the decision to fight, this cat attacks bravely and violently, most often winning any fight against a lion. In the end, the tiger's agility, stanima, ferocity, and power comes out on top. The majority of experts agree that the tiger would be victorious about 90% of the time. (9 out of 10 fights) So now, it is clear that the tiger is the true king of beasts. . Answer 2: EXPERTS MAY AGREE 90%, BUT ACCORDING TO OLD ROMAN ENTERTAINMENT, LIONS WOULD WIN THE MAJORITY OF TIME WHEN THE AFRICAN LION WAS PITTED AGAINST VARIOUS TYPES OF TIGERS......THE ABOVE STATES THE OPEN SAVANAH IS A SIMPLE BIOME BUT IN FACT AFRICA HABITAT IS FAR MORE HARSH THAN THAT OF THE TIGERS. FOR ONE THE LION NOT ONLY FIGHTS AGAINST ITS OWN KIND BUT THE EXPERIENCE REALLY COMES FROM FIGHTING OTHER SPECIES AS WELL LIKE THE CRAZED HYENA PACKS. TIGERS CAN HAVE BEAR THREATS WHICH IS ABOUT AS FAR AS THE TIGER HAS TO WORRY ABOUT BUT BEAR IS INCLUDED IN A TIGERS DIET. LIONS HAVE NUMEROUS SPECIES CONSTANTLY POSING A THREAT. ANOTHER FAULT WITH THE ABOVE IS THE TIGER DOES NOT HAVE STAMINA BEING IT HAS MORE BODY FAT THAT THE LEAN LION AS ONE CAN SEE FROM PYSICAL APPEARANCE. THIS FACTOR IS WHY THE LION USUALLY WINS, DUE TO THE FACT THAT TIGERS SWIPE FASTER AND GET FATIGUE QUICKER THEY TIRE OUT AND REALIZE FROM BEING SMARTER THEY SHOULD USE THE LAST OF THE ENERGY TO GET AWAY AS THE LION REALIZES ITS ONLY PURPOSE FROM BIRTH IS TO FIGHT AND PROTECT THE PRIDE SINCE THE FEMALES CAN DO THE HUNTING FOR THE MALES. THIS CAUSES THE MALES TO PATROL MORE TERRITORY THAN TIGERS AND LIONS CAN PATROL 10 TO 20 MILES A DAY!! AS OPPSOE TO THE 7 TO 12MILES A TIGER HAS DO TO ITS LIMITED JUNGLE HABITAT BEING DENSE. IN A ONE ON ONE BEING THAT THE LION HAVING A MANE TO DEFLECT MANY TIGER ATTACKS THE LION WOULD WIN THE MAJORITY OF THE FIGHTS AS ONE CAN SEE THROUGH VIDEOS POSTED. Answer 3: The above poster is correct. On the TV show Animal Face-Off the Lion won.. AND during TIGER WEEK on the Discovery Channel or Animal Planet, I don't know which, they asked who would win as a good question for the Tiger trainer, and he said the LION wins 9 out of 10 times, even though it was Tiger week. Answer 4: Tigers, being slightly larger and stronger, should win most battles. Answer 5: Now lets first look at the advantages and disadvantages. The Lion's main advantages are its: Mane, Accuracy, and Paw Size The Tiger's main advantages are its : Speed, Strength, Size, and Jaw Strength The Lions' main disadvantages when fighting the Tiger are that it is: Smaller and Slower then a Tiger The Tiger's main disadvantages when fighting the Lion are that it is: Less Accurate, Smaller Paws, and it's main fight ending move is blocked against. Now if you ask me personally I would say that the Tiger would win. The Tiger's ability to stand on its powerful hind legs and be able to wipe with both paws using INCREDIBLE speed the lion would have to dodge faster then it normally does. The Lion will only go on it hind legs to fight against other Lions. If a Tiger and Lion were to both go onto their hind legs and ram into each other the Tiger would soon end up on top of the Lion biting at his chest. The Lion is also t proud and brave for his own good. The lion's main predator on the savanna is the Hyena now the Lion outweighs the Hyena by a few hundred pounds allowing him to challenge around 8 at once. Now when the Lion is outmatched in numbers but outsizes his opponent he isn't going to swipe at them and dodge. He will charge in the pack of Hyenas and attack them all in a show of brute force. If a Lion tried to pull this strategy with a Tiger he would be running towards his own doom. Now Tigers have a far greater stamina then a Lion due to the fact that a full grown Tiger can take down a full grown Grizzly bear single handed. If the battle were to turn into a wrestling match the Tiger would outmatch the Lion easily. The Tiger is also a more strategic fighter then the Lion. When fighting it keeps his head back while a lion rushes into a fight , as said earlier. That is my opinion on why a Tiger would win. However, I'm not going to completely rag on the Lion all day. While a Lion is slower then a Tiger their paws are larger allowing the blows to hurt more and cause more damage. The Lion's maw is also longer and thinner then the Tigers broad jaws. This allows the Lion to not have to get that close to the fighting. The Lions main advantage is one thing. His mane. When hunting or fighting a Tiger's main fight-ender is the dreaded bite to the throat or back of the neck/head. With the Tiger's massive bite force this attack will tear out any animals throat or neck if it is allowed to connect. That is where the Lion is saved. The mane protect the Lion from any neck shots what so ever. This will greatly disadvantage the Tiger in ending the fight. Over all in a fight of skills paw swipes, bites, dodging, ect. The Lion's greater paw strength matches the Tiger's speed and agility almost perfectly. However, if this skill fight turns into a wrestling match , a tactic the Tiger would probably use, the Tigers greater size and strength would allow him to get his jaws around the lions leg or chest and allow the Tiger to stay in that position and let the Lion bleed to death. Answer 6: Tiger, it's a known fact that tigers are the biggest and strongest of all Big Cats. Answer 7: Reliable Answer: (See list of sources below) In a fair fight between African lion and Bengal tiger the African lion will be the victor. So lion vs tiger. Let's break it up. Everyone with me, so let's analyze the two cats in a fight of course, starting with the lion It's a well known fact that tigers are the biggest cats in the world. It's a well known fact that the lion is the tallest cat at the shoulder and that African lion is also longer than a tiger. The word "bigger" appears in length height and weight. Tigers are usually heavier than lions on average. Lions are 4 feet tall while tigers around 3.5 feet. 6 inches is not a huge difference. 10.2 to 11.4 feet is not a big difference as well. Most lions are lighter than tigers but most is taller and longer. Tigers can be up to 50Ibs heavier on average. I'll say Siberian tiger is the biggest and African lion is just the size of Bengal tiger. I have a proof to that. Enormous mass of people do not see the difference between lion and tiger skeleton, which will be impossible with a bigger size difference than slight. Lions are not just the size of a tiger, but they are better fighters. Male lion spends 4 years learning for the fight for a pride. People think that tigers are more skilled because they fight as much as lion does for a pride. Here a fact to disagree with this remark. Lionesses do most of he hunting but when a pride finds something big they all join the hunt and don't quit until they've made their kill. Even males. There are few clips where a single lioness chases the entire elephant herd for about 60 meters. Every animal on African plains flees when it sees lion coming. Lions had evolved as fighters. All what a male lion does is protecting his pride. Male is just ready to risk his life to protect all what he has. On the other hand male tiger has evolved in more hunting lifestyle because not only because tigers have larger territories than lions but also because animals in the jungle are further spread out. Male tiger spends a lot of his time looking for a suitable prey like axis deer or wild boar. He is less interested in fight because tigress won't help him. Tiger forequarters appear easily on tigers short fur. Because of the lion's mane it is usually the lionesses who are compared to male tigers but some people claim them to be tigresses. Lions had been noticed as better fighters because they are smarter, braver faster and have better eye coordination which leads to fantastic dodges it does. It makes more damage with his claws and has stronger paw-swipe. His mane supports him in the fight it would not evolve it it would do nothing. Lions are also more aggressive, fierce and determined fighters and they like to fight more than tigers. The tiger is a fierce Asian cat with big retractable claws. The tiger strikes from cover so it doesn't need to run that fast as lions do. Tigers had been told to have wider jaws than lions this letting them to have stronger bite-force. But the fact is, tigers "broad" on their cheeks and under the chin makes the tigers head look wider than they actually are but has the function as lion's mane only in a miniature version. According to real measurements lions head is longer and wider. Tigers are also said to use two paws at a time while lion must have 3 paws on the ground. This is not true. Lion's stand on 3 as much as on two. There's another myth that tigers hunt gaur regularly and that biggest prey lions hunt on is the African buffalo. In fact the tiger hunts gaur as much as lion hunt on giraffe or hippo, and pride of lions can take down an elephant in less that half an hour while it takes hours for tiger to take down smaller Asian elephant. The tiger does stand a chance against male lion, strength. Tigers have more strength and can drag 100Ibs heavier prey over the same distance. Tigers use their stronger hind legs to do that. Tigers have more strength. However when working on a throat bite the scientists found most annoying piece that it takes the jaws almost no power to suffocate a deer giving the lion huge advantage. When the lion will see the opportunity for a throat bite when fighting with a tiger, the lion will use it. This means lion will use throat bite to end the fight quickly, most often defeating any tiger specie at all In the end, it is obvious that a lion would be the victor. Lions supreme skills and unexpected throat bite comes to the real king of the beasts. Surely they don't give superior titles for nothing. The lion is the dominant cat. lion would totally win because it hunts in prides (MORE)
No cheetah in its right mind would fight a hyena in close quarters. Cheetahs are built for speed and lack the stamina for a protracted fight with a hyena with jaws that can crush the femur of a buffalo.
According to the site provided in the Related Links area, it does not say who will win, but, I believe the wolf might win against a cheetah in a fight, but not in a race.
Lion. Lions are predators, gorillas are not, thus a lion, which has more weaponry than a gorilla, would be able to easily win in a fight with a gorilla. Another answer: The silver-back would win because its far more intelligent and stronger than the lion and it would probably pick up a log an…d use it as a weapon. A gorilla can do whatever when attacked by a lion, and it can do anything to just maul the lion by throwing stones and pounding its fists. A lion can beat an unarmed Gorilla. If the Gorilla is armed with a stick or a log then the lion would have to run. (MORE)
probably a leopard i know a cheetah is faster but that doesnt mean anything a leopard is stronger.

Cheetah is the fastest running animal on the land which can run at the speed of about about 60 miles/ hour for 3.6 minutes. David Morson http://www.datadubai.com/
A snake because a snake can slither out. Really, if it's arattlesnake it would win hands DOWN!!! but some snakes are so slowa lion would win. also if the snake was posinous and the lion atehim neather would win
probably the black bear bears are stronger than cats and a cheetah is built for speed,not strength
there both about the same weight but the cheetah might be able to win but then again the wolf is more aggressive. Each animal has different advantages.The wolf:sharp teeth,sharp claws,great hearing,poor eyesite,and an awesome sense of smell.A cheetah has most of these characteristics,but have more s…peed.I would say cheetah. . I would bet on the wolf. Just think about it, if a cheetah cant even beat a small hyena, what makes you think it can do any better against a wolf? It depends. If it was a mother cheetah it would scare the wolf off and win. But if it was over food the wolf would win becuase the cheetah would not fight. But if they started a fight, the cheetah might win because they usally bite their preys neck, and the wolf might go for other parts on the cheetahs body. I would root for the cheetah anyway.If you really thought about it, since a mother cheetah is capable of scaring off predators, then other cheetahs could scare off a wolf. A cheetah could defidently give the wolf scars if it wanted to. (MORE)
a jaguar . It would be very tough but cheetah has incredible power as wellas speed so cheetah would most likely win
it would be a pretty even match as they are both very similar but in my opinion it would be a lion The user above me is misinformed. Lets assume we're speaking of the largest wolf (Gray Wolf) and largest lion (African Lion). First we'll talk about the Lions anatomy. Height: 4 feet Weight: 55…0lbs Teeth: 4 inches Claws: 5 inches Speed: 35 mph Jumping: 11-14 feet high, length 36 feet Bite force: 1,000lbs Now wolves: Height: 3 and a half feet Weight: 175 lbs Teeth: 2 inches Claws: 4-5 inches Speed: 45 mph Jumping: 6 ft high, 5-10 feet length Bite force: 700lbs (All of these are maximum or close to maximum measurements) So you can clearly see, from the start, Lions have a HUGE advatantage just looking at them anatomically. Speed won't do much for a wolf unless it runs away. Now we can look at the game they might hunt. (Animals known to have been killed and eaten by these animals). Including how lethal they can be (scale of 1-10) Lions: Elephants (12,000 lbs - 10) Uncommon Giraffes (20 feet, 4,400 lbs - 8) Uncommon Hyenas (200 lbs, strongest mammal bite force - 8) Uncommon Gazelles (85 lbs, 45 mph - 2) Common Wildebeests (600 lbs - 4) Common Zebras (820 lbs - 3) Common Impala (56 mph - 1) Common Water Buffalo (1,200 lbs - 6) Common Wolves: Caribou (200lbs, 6) Common Moose (1,800 lbs - 7) Uncommon Rabbits (11lbs - 0) Common Other rodents (-5 lbs - 0) Common Competition - Lions: Other lions Jaguars Cheetahs Leopards Hyenas Hippos (Yes, it's happened) Baboons African Wild Dogs Wolves: Other wolves Bears Cougars Wolverines Already the lions have more competition and hunt bigger/heavier/more lethal game. This just shows the physical brutality of the lion. Now this is enough in most people's minds. Lion and wolf with the intent to kill, in a set setting, strength will win. That's how it is in the animal kingdom. One might argue which is smarter. As a pack (or pride) hunter, a lion is equally as smart as a wolf. Both predators flush the prey and use team work to take down the bigger prey when necessary. Other comments: Wolves do have more endurance than a lion. They cannot stay at their maximum speed forever, but a wolf hunt typically lasts longer and ends due to the prey being worn out. Lion hunts are usually quick and end when either the lion gets gassed or the lion kills it's prey. Wolves are better survivors. They typically live in harsher environments and although they have less competition than lions, they do have less prey. A lion's life is a constant moving one. Prides travel together and typically hunt every 5 days or so (unless they eat a big meal). Their size gives them the advantage of hunting bigger game, but their enormous muscle capacity means they eat up more calories, forcing them to hunt more. Verdict: A lion will easily kill a wolf. A pride of x amount of lions would easily kill a pack of x amount of wolves. Although, a pack of wolves can be considered better hunters than a pride of lions. (MORE)
A race over what terrain, and how long? Cheetahs are faster, butthey run out of stamina quickly and have to traverse land. Eaglescan fly longer but are subject to winds
If you mean in a race, a Cheetah would win. in a fight cougar hands down
I would personally think that a tiger would win. i think lions are too FAT and LAZY. Also they have no chance against a tiger!
Lion no contest. A Cheetah would be destroyed in this mach up its not even 1 fraction in size of a Lioness and Lions are the top predators in the animal kingdom. The Lion has this one.
If a gorilla and cheetah met face to face, the cheetah would endure because of their sharp claws and teeth for offence and long distance and very fast speeds.
what are you thinking a puma will just run away because a lion is awesome answer 2 a lion a puma could stand a chance answer 3 a lion pumas won't stand in the heat there ment for the cold i think answer 4 lion
depends if the lion was dumb or not. if it was, the scorpion, but if it wasnt, the lion.
Sabre tooths were huge as well as having very long canines. the Sabre tooth would easily win.
Wild dogs.They work in packs and are very cunning, just likehyenas. Also, they are stronger, but smaller.If cheetahs worked inprides, the cheetah would win, but they don't. So the victor is theAfrican wild dog.
A rhino will win cause cheetahs not that strong but they can run up to 60 miles
A cheetah, no contest. The cheetah is FAR faster, much larger, and is accustomed to killing its prey with a single bite to the throat. The dog probably wouldn't even see the big cat coming. Lesson: Don't let your dog off the leash in a wild animal sanctuary.
The falcon is a bird while a lion is a mammal. Lions are probably 100 times heavier and even more times stronger and powerful than a falcon. A lion can kill a falcon with just one swipe of its paw. There is no comparison or a fight. There is no way a falcon can beat a lion. It can probably fly away …and escape. (MORE)
It depends on where the fight happens. On land the Lion is the superior opponent whereas in water the Alligator would win hands down. Depending on where the fight happens, either the lion or the alligator could win.
The lion, as no dog on earth can defeat any of the big cats one on one. Even a leopard can kill a rottie.
Cheetahs cant even win against a leopard, which are smaller and weaker than a jaguar, but in a race the cheetah would winn easily.
It depends on whether they're on land or in water. But probably the shark because sharks are sneaky predator killers.
Lion! They are definetly more powerful. What kind of question is this, it's obvious? You dick head.
It depends on some factors such as what it is against, how healthy it is and how healthy it's opponent is, ect.
In a race, a cheetah would obviously win, but in nature animals don't usually race, and if a cheetah were trying to outrun a lion to escape, a lion has more endurance and thus may be able to catch up to the cheetah. In a fight where the cheetah is unable to flee, lions usually win and kill the ch…eetah. However, there are definitely exceptions to the rule. As shown on an episode of Animal Planet's series "Big Cat Diaries," a mother cheetah was with her cubs when a lion came. The cheetah stood her ground as the lion approached, and then she charged the lion. The lion ran away, and none of the cheetah family were harmed. (MORE)
well its sort of a draw. the cheetah of corse has its super speed and big claws but on the other hand if the hyena got ahold of the cheetahs neck it would crush it because of its massive jaw power or lets say the hyena got ahold of the cheetahs leg it would lock those powerful jaws on and not let go…. its kinda a 50 50 chance.

In an all-out fight (not race) a bear would win. In a race of speed, obviously the cheetah would win.
Both animals are powerful and if you talking about a silver back gorllia it could head lock a lion and break its neck, and a couple swings can break its jaw, but with a loin comes weight, teeth, and claws do the math, an exceptional predator, Built to do nothing but kill, like bullets to King Kong t…he gorllia will fall, my favorite predator the lion.

A horse obviously, lions aren't as strong as they're made out to be. a Full grown stallion would rape a horse
On land probably the Lion would have the upper hand, but near or in water the Lion would be doomed, the crocodile would drag the lion into water and drown the lion very quickly.
First of all, let's get some size perspective. A tiger can weigh up to 660lb, a lion up to 550lb, a jaguar up to 300lb, and a cheetah up to 160lb. Cheetahs are lightly-built and slender, being adapted for speed rather than strength. They have sacrificed strength in order to attain their incredibl…e swiftness, which means they often lose their kills to larger and stronger predators such as lions, hyenas or leopards. They will run from these animals rather than fight, because to fight could result in injury - in an animal that relies on speed to hunt, an injury could mean starvation. Thus, in a battle against three much larger and stronger cats, the cheetah stands no chance. It would either run away or, if the animals were imprisoned and forced to fight, it would be the first one killed. Jaguars are very strong - they are believed to be the strongest of all cats in comparison to their size. They also have very powerful jaws. However, against its much larger relatives the tiger and lion, it would undoubtedly lose. They are simply too big and strong for it to take on. Third place to the jaguar. The battle for first place is now between the tiger and the lion. A fight between these two animals could go either way. There are numerous records of fights between these species, since many people in the past have wanted the answer to this question and tried to settle it by cruelly pitting tigers and lions against each other. In some cases the tiger wins, in some cases the lion. The outcome of such a fight depends on the individuals involved - their age, size, sex, health, experience, temperament, etc. Tigers are larger and stronger, but size and strength are not the only determining factors - a large but timid tiger would be likely to lose to a small but aggressive lion, even though it was stronger. Lions generally have more fighting experience - they often clash with other prides, whereas tigers tend to avoid conflict whenever possible. Also, the lion's mane (provided it is a male, of course) would offer some degree of protection against a fatal throat-bite. It wouldn't make the killing bite impossible by any means, but it would certainly make it more difficult to achieve and hold. The fact that lions hunt in groups whilst tigers hunt alone has no bearing on the outcome of a fight between them - they do not employ the same tactics in hunting as they do in fighting, and besides, a single lion is just as capable of hunting for itself as a single tiger. It's just that they have a better success rate hunting in groups, and group living is also helpful in holding territory and raising young..

A lion, without a doubt. An adult lion can easily kill a human ape(which are big as far as apes go) with one swipe of their paw.
Yes with selective breeding. This is when humans breed different animals to create a new breed.
A bear. Bears (especially Brown Bears) are much larger and strongerthan a lion, and would overwhelm and crush it.
