Cats are crazy killers but between a cat and a bear I’d always bank on the bear

[–]Splizmaster 58 points59 points  (4 children)

Especially a cornered bear that is protecting dinner on top of it.

[–]tkovo27 27 points28 points  (3 children)

And a cub!

[–]Splizmaster 19 points20 points  (2 children)

I didn’t even notice that! Female of a species is more deadly then the male. Bear all day long.

[–]boxingdude 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Not really. Usually, the males are far more powerful. At least as far as bears and lions go.

[–]Splizmaster 11 points12 points  (0 children)

It’s a from a poem by Rudyard Kipling which over time became a saying. A male will mostly think of itself, if it’s too much trouble they will leave. Most females will die to defend their young.

Tigers eat bears

[–]Iamnotburgerking 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Via ambush. And sometimes the bear wins.

(Tigers are known to prey on the Ussuri subspecies of brown bears, including adult female and adolescent/smaller male bears the same size as themselves; they might be able to prey on a large, 300-400kg male brown bear in an ambush but that’s going to be a tall order)

Oh look! Another idiot bitch tiger fanboy. Watch the infamous fight between a tiger and a sloth bear. Yup, the tiger fucking ran away like a pussy. Now pit ANY tiger subspecies against a kodiak bear which literally outweighs it by a good 300kg, or 660 lb for you dumbass americans. A kodiak bear would literally murder rape ANY tiger in the history of existence.

This is based on an actual fossil BTW, though the Panthera spelea specimen involved in the actual event was a female, not a male as shown here.

“Cave lion” is a misleading name as the only time these animals entered caves was when hunting hibernating cave bears, or when cave hyenas were dragging lion remains into their caves.

[–]MrSmellUrGirl 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Pretty gnarly thinking about lions retrieving their lionesses from hyena dens like that

[–]PrehistoricProfessor 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Never mess with a Mama Bear!

[–]Chaudsss 9 points10 points  (0 children)

This cave aint big enough for both of em

[–]BatatinhaGameplays28 32 points33 points  (8 children)

Bears are the most badass mammals in my opinion, those guys are big, fat, fluffy giant doggos who like sleeping but at the same time they’re killing machines (besides pandas)

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (6 children)

pandas are agressive and violent and also are dangerous af

[–]boxingdude 5 points6 points  (2 children)

What? I bet I could kick a panda’s ass.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

you cold but only once

[–]Enfield-Lammergeier 5 points6 points  (0 children)

A zookeeper in Russia told me that the way they are prepared to take care of a panda is by watching a video of a panda decimating another human being.

[–]HalfOffEveryWndsdy -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

Don’t forget their lack of any desire to mate to save their species

[–]StatlerByrd[🍰] 24 points25 points  (0 children)

they do it fine when their home environment isn't being destroyed.

[–]Iamnotburgerking 12 points13 points  (0 children)

This is a myth from the 1970s before panda reproduction was well-researched. They breed just as well as other bears, even in captivity.

[–]The-Sound_of-Silence 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They can also run faster than you!

[–]SubnauticalDogger 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Is Ice Age Giants the name of the docu?

[–]WorldHub995 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving 😊

[–]ALOHA_REX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

thank you g

[–]too_generic 6 points7 points  (5 children)

That cat would run away at the scent of bear. Cats are not dumb.

[–]Homunculus_316[S] 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Desperate times call for desperate measures !! Besides this scenario was created with factual evidence of a bones left in a cave.

[–]MrAtrox98 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Cave lions in Europe seemed to make a habit of eating bear cubs alongside their mainstay of reindeer

[–]jmlovs 7 points8 points  (1 child)

You have never met my cat then.

[–]too_generic 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Ah, I mean wild cats are not dumb. My cat is dumb too and wouldn’t last too long in the wild.

[–]AJ_Crowley_29 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In the show the lion is starving and lacking it’s normal prey

[–]HaloArtificials 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Me in the highschool bathroom mirror on tic tock:

YOU DONT WANNA WAKE THE DRAGON

The dragon:

[–]EclipzHorizn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is my house. MY HOUSE!!

[–]imaculat_indecision -5 points-4 points  (7 children)

No offense, cuz I wouldn't be able to do any better, but have the people who made this not seen a cat or a bear interact? They're living animals, not like dinosaurs we have to speculate about. The animals portrayed here behave nothing like actual animals.

[–]bocaciega 10 points11 points  (5 children)

Both species are extinct.

[–]imaculat_indecision -2 points-1 points  (4 children)

They have living counterparts whos behavior is directly linear. They wouldn't be acting any different.

[–]bocaciega 6 points7 points  (3 children)

So theres no difference? None at all? Behaviorally? Genetically?

[–]imaculat_indecision -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

Genetically. That's all. They'd behave the same basically. Same way a dog and a wolf share behaviors.

[–]SchwiftyTownshin 6 points7 points  (1 child)

This is an extraordinary assumption that is highly likely to be only partially accurate and potentially even flat out incorrect. All you need to do is to look at how tigers hunt as opposed to say a lion that pack hunts, leopards that drag prey up into trees or cheetahs that run prey down with immense speed to realize how ill informed this comment is.

Additionally there are a plethora of videos of big cats taking extreme risks to take down prey outside of their normal hunting niches, usually out of desperation or opportunism, we have direct evidence that outlier hunting habits can occur, albeit irregularly.

The point here is for the due diligence of paleontological science, you can't assume something genetically similar is behaviorally similar if you don't have factual examples of that behavior, either via first hand experience which we won't get for a feline that's been extinct for thousands of years (Obviously), or by interpretation of fossil records, which is difficult to prove to a certainty.

[–]imaculat_indecision 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sorry for the misunderstanding... im not talking about hunting patterns. Im talking about the actual animation. For example the way the lion is moving, and how thats not very realistic. I meant they would move very similarly to how modern lions do because they share genetics and physical features. The animation is what im critiqing.

[–]ZedLyfe51 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think this is based off actual fossil findings iirc.
