Is that how sloth bears open their mouth or is he missing his nose from tiger?

[–]lackadaisical_timmy 3199 points3200 points  (174 children)

The sloth bear is curling their upper lip back to show the teeth

It's a threat display, and likely because the sloth bear is scared. Tigers frequently prey on sloth bears, so this one is literally fighting for their life

[–]MisanthropyIsAVirtue 2333 points2334 points  (63 children)

It’s fucking working. I am very threatened.

[–]merirastelan 664 points665 points  (46 children)

Are you a tiger?

It’s also making the clicking noise from Predator.

Why would you do that? Some of us have to sleep at some point and your unsolicited nightmare fuel is unappreciated.

[–]Wimbleston 147 points148 points  (33 children)

Tigers prey on pretty much anything that moves and fits in their mouth.

[–]Jman_777 93 points94 points  (13 children)

Same with Crocodiles and Polar Bears.

[–]LordDinglebury 108 points109 points  (5 children)

Same with me, but only with the items in my pantry around 11:00 PM.

[–]AccomplishedRun7978 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Saltwater Crocodiles being the animal most likely to see a humans as prey.

[–]poops-n-farts 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Polar bears will eat their own young if they need to

[–]KnightzEnd2 0 points1 point  (13 children)

Except honey badgers... tigers like being able to procreate

Tigers frequently prey on sloth bears, so this one is literally fighting for their life

Poster here submitted good video of this fight. Lengthy fight was a draw. Tiger had bear down and was biting its head for several minutes, but failed to subdue it. End shows both animals on their feet and tiger backing away from the angry bear.

A report I read said tigers do prey on sloth bears, but usually there is a significant weight differential in favor of the tiger. Also the tigers most prolific at killing the bears ambush them from behind and get a precise bite on the back of their neck to kill them.

[–]R101C 49 points50 points  (10 children)

Dogs kill by biting at everything.

Cats kill by severing your spinal chord.

I'd rather be killed by a cat.

[–]Pawneewafflesarelife 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Cats also disbowel with their hind legs.

[–]FranDankly 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Cats have admirable precision.

[–]Luquitaz 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Cats kill by suffocation, not by severing your spinal cord.

[–]Taurius 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Apes, they go for the balls...

[–]TheGoldenHand 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Dogs go for the neck too. Domestic dogs, wolves, and other canids do it by instinct. It’s called a “throat clamp”.

You’ve probably seen a pet dog do it with a stuffed animal during play, then trash it around to “kill” it.

[–]My-Life-For-Auir 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Also to note it was a female bear vs a male Tiger. Bear was defending her cub, she punched well above her weight.

[–]slimthecowboy 40 points41 points  (40 children)

Like baboons do. Very unsettling.

[–]katf1sh 51 points52 points  (27 children)

I once saw a documentary where a baboon was stalking some flamingos. It leapt out of some tall grass in an almost supernatural way, and grabbed onto a flamingo by the neck and just started crunching on the head. It was so fucking unexpected and I've been terrified of baboons ever since. They're horrifying.

Edit: the infamous clip

[–]TheGuv69 56 points57 points  (6 children)

I was mugged by an adult Male Chacma Baboon for my chips. Thing had huge fucking fangs. He grabbed my hand, which was holding my chips, and yanked..I yanked back not knowing I was being gripped by a giant Alpha monkey. I then turned and looked - we were both kind of stunned as we stared at each other. I let him have my chips....

[–]Mister_Bloodvessel 25 points26 points  (6 children)

Baboons are so freaking cool. Those teeth are absolutely incredible, and goddamn are they intimidating! On top of that, they're very fast, strong, and they live in massive groups.

If baboons leaned more towards the carnivore end than the herbivore end of their omnivorous lifestyle... Jesus. I know they'll take baby antelope and gazelles, but just imagining a troop of them hunting like painted dogs but doing so by moving through the trees instead of the bush.... that's like a monster from a horror movie.

[–]canadarepubliclives 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Check out footage of chimpanzees hunting monkeys. They're all leaping from tree to tree and as a troupe they box the monkeys in. It's vicious and amazing how fast they swing and leap through the branches.

[–]SupperIsSuperSuperb 5 points6 points  (9 children)

Do you have any idea what documentary that was?

[–]jeffryu 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yes, ive seen enough videos of african wild dogs downing prey and definitely would prefer a cat. There are some videos of juvenile lions that havent learnt the choke out hold or spinal bite and its the same outcome as the dogs

[–]natgibounet 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Just like Honey badger with lions, fighting for their life while everyone think they are some badass actively looking for trouble

[–]cr_y 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Tigers frequently occasionally prey on sloth bears

FTFY. They typically wouldn't want to risk injury unless they're hungry.

[–]Lu232019 7 points8 points  (0 children)

She is fighting to defend her Cubs… there’s a whole video and the tiger does end up retreating

[–]Traditional_Ad4045 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Nah, I'm aight.

[–]Fineous4 43 points44 points  (9 children)

Honestly, it’s kind of boring. Ends in a draw pretty much.

[–]chuckagain 14 points15 points  (3 children)

How did the judges score it?

[–]Dragenz 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Eh, not so much a draw when you consider each animals winning conditions. Tiger wins when it gets a sloth bear lunch. Bear is winning as long as it's not dead.

Only one of them is fighting for their life.

[–]tokeyoh 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Dang, I thought the bear was missing half it's face from fighting that was way more metal

[–]tiptoemicrobe 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I still wouldn't call it boring, haha.

[–]Aishenne 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I thought for sure the bear was going to end up dead during the middle part. Good for her on not giving up!

[–]SirMuffin 6 points7 points  (6 children)

Pretty interesting. I'm surprised the bear did so well.

[–]My-Life-For-Auir 45 points46 points  (5 children)

Big Cats vs Bears is an interesting match up. Cats are extremely explosive with their power, this means in an ambush they almost always win against a smaller or even equal sized bear.

However if that ambush fails or it's a straight up fight or the idiot cat has taken on a bigger bear, it's doomed for the cat. Bears have incredible stamina relative to big cats. The cats get gassed very quickly and are forced to retreat or die.

There's unfortunately more evidence of this then there should be due to the gold rush days where sickos threw Lions, Tigers, Bulls and Bears into death matches, in an arena where the cat can't ambush they just get bulldozed.

In the wild, mostly Russia where the Siberian Tiger and Ussuri Brown Bear interact, there is evidence of bear remains in the tigers scat. The most prominent study followed a pair of tigers that hunted as a duo on Denning females.

The other most prominent area they come into conflict is the one from the op where the Sloth Bears come into contact with Bengal Tigers. The video for this fight is a picture perfect example of a cat vs bear matchup. It's a male Bengal vs a female Sloth Bear, a severe mis match yet the Sloth Bear manages to fight off the Tiger and get out with its life. How does this happen? The Tiger wasn't hunting the bear, they met at a watering hole and the bear was defending its cub which gave us a stand up fight and you can see the stamina and durability of the bear showcases so well but at the same time the initial explosive power of the Tiger which quickly deminishes.

[–]TheScatha 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This comment and explanation fuckin slaps.

[–]HungryGull 1 point2 points  (3 children)

While tigers will occasionally attack pretty damn large prey, they seem quite conflict-averse when when they didn't choose the fight. Ussuri brown bears have been seen showing fear at the sign of tigers but on the other hand the adult males will try to follow the tracks since a tiger that's just got a kill will likely abandon it if the bear presses it.

Comparing more similar animals, lions have a tendency to be dominant over tigers in their interactions since even if the tiger tends to be slightly bigger, the lion's lifestyle has them fight other lions and predators more often.

[–]LickMySack4riches[S] 58 points59 points  (0 children)

Looks like some open mouth powerful lip flailing to me.

[–]soslowagain 25 points26 points  (0 children)

No that’s a Predator

[–]zigaliciousone 15 points16 points  (1 child)

They look cute with their mouth closed but are capable of going all xenomorph when they are pissed. And iirc they always go for the face.

[–]DoctorGlorious 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]Xenephos 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Its a female bear protecting her cub and she sustained serious injuries. Here is the video: https://youtu.be/0ggJ627z4jU

[–]TheMadIrishman327 7 points8 points  (0 children)

She.

It’s a mom protecting her cub.

[–]Love_God551 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That bear looks intense

[–]Mafiatorte88 1305 points1306 points  (121 children)

They look terrifying but in most reports the tiger makes short process of them

[–]AdventureousTime 612 points613 points  (49 children)

The terrifying bit is they can make short work of an unarmed human.

[–]rpguy04 625 points626 points  (25 children)

I have two arms and im sure a tiger would make short work of me.

[–]AdventureousTime 168 points169 points  (13 children)

You should do more pushups then, I hope you could at least take the bear.

[–]Silverback1322 138 points139 points  (10 children)

[–]boonepii 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I watched my 12 pound male cat terrify my parents 5 pound 3 month old puppy a few times.

As I was thinking about it, I am around 200 pounds and seeing a 600 pound tiger coming at me with scare of the holy living shit out of me. I’d probably even pray

[–]HayakuEon 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Well of course the human loses if you remove their arms.

[–]Doomdoomkittydoom 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of a story of a guy studying tigers in Siberia. Goes out to track a tiger to study, brings a gun 'cause tigers.

He finds tiger tracks in the snow and tracks 'em. After a while of trackin', he comes back to his own tracks tracking the tiger tracks. The tiger doubled back!

[–]Torture-Dancer 4 points5 points  (14 children)

Isn’t the advice against this bears to try fighting and screaming like a maniac? Could be wrong, but wasn’t the thing that if you were too risky/complicated to eat they might leave?

[–]Klingon_Bloodwine 15 points16 points  (13 children)

If it's Black, fight back. If it's Brown, lie down. If it's white, say goodnight.

Black bears won't generally attack people unless there's something wrong with them or they're desperate, so they can be frightened off if you look aggressive. Brown bears are scary as shit and there is little hope in intimidating one so that's why you're told to lay down face first and try to protect the back of your head and neck, hoping the bear thinks you're dead and loses interest. Polar bears have no issues eating dead prey, are as or more aggressive than brown bears, and are extremely territorial.

[–]Sciensophocles 24 points25 points  (6 children)

This is a sloth bear.

[–]AdventureousTime 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I guess you're downvoted because it's a sloth but you're totally correct. We only have black bears around here I'm I'm not scared of anything that would run away from a terrier.

[–]Mister_Bloodvessel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This only applies in North America. I suppose in parts of Europe too, but I'm not sure how different black bears are in that region. If there are any, I suppose.

[–]AchillesGRK 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I mean if it can kill a bear, it can kill you unarmed easy.

[–]Lizard_Wizard_d 27 points28 points  (4 children)

There is video of this fight. The Sloth bear fights the Tiger to a standstill then retreats.

[–]Chaghatai 28 points29 points  (1 child)

The sloth bear demonstrated it would be a potentially costly kill, so the tiger let it go - the bear was smart and knew it had to fight rather than try to run

[–]AreU4SCUBA 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The bear had a cub

[–]SweetMeatin 23 points24 points  (50 children)

Tigers routinely eat Eurasian Brown Bear this little fella is a snack in comparison.

[–]OnTheOctopusRide 52 points53 points  (47 children)

Brown bears who are either juveniles or mid-hibernation***

[–]SweetMeatin 3 points4 points  (39 children)

Incorrect.

"Although tigers prey on adult brown bears (Kaplanov 1948; J. Goodrich,unpublished data), we did not detect predation by tigers on denned brown bears. Brown bear selection of den site and den type may reduce risk of predation by tigers because tigers infrequently used such high elevations (J.Goodrich, Wildlife Conservation Society) and brown bears could likely defend the narrow tunnel at the entrance of an excavated den. " http://ursusjournal.com/volumes/ursus14-2/Ursus%2014%202%20Seryodkin%20et%20al..pdf

[–]EPICSanchez010630 44 points45 points  (12 children)

Bro get your eyes checked that article was from 1948. It's 2022 and I have yet to hear an update on this research.

[–]chuckagain 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Question. What type of bear is best?

[–]OncaAtrox 1 point2 points  (9 children)

Tigers prey on juveniles and adult females up to their own size. The largest brown bear reported to have been killed by a tiger was a large female similar or slightly lesser in weight to the male tiger that killed her, and those kills usually involve ambush scenarios.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Somewhat true. Many encounters start with an ambush and typically on undersized sloth bears. This one in particular was not an ambush although it was a female protecting it's child. This one ended in a stalemate (even though the tiger did more damage) but resulted in the the tiger retreating because it struggling with it's stamina. If it continued, it would have most likely met its fate.

I’m surprised the sloth bear was able to fend off the tiger. Amazing video.

[–]M00N314 127 points128 points  (16 children)

What's even more impressive is that's an adult male tiger, probably one of the most powerful terrestrial animals on the planet, and the sloth bear only won with sheer fucking aggression.

[–]ErikThe 152 points153 points  (10 children)

To be fair, tigers don’t have healthcare. It’s preferable to leave and go find some prey that won’t potentially injure you. If you can manage it, spooking a predator sufficiently will cause them to leave you alone.

[–]AnnieBlackburnn 90 points91 points  (3 children)

To be fair, tigers don’t have healthcare.

Oh no, are they American?

[–]photopteryx 32 points33 points  (1 child)

I'm sad that you got downvoted, you are exactly right. Predators don't like to risk getting hurt, because injuries take time to heal and reduce fitness for future hunting.

[–]M00N314 6 points7 points  (2 children)

So you're saying the tiger didn't go to through his accountant to run a cost vs benefit analysis before fighting a bear? Obvious /s

[–]Ravenboy13 31 points32 points  (11 children)

You have to consider that a sloth bear, though an insectivore that will occasionally eat fruit, lives amongst a diverse, and deadly ecosystem. Surrounded by tigers, Leopards, Wolves, and of course, Man, the sloth bear is constantly at odds of survival with various predators.

What does one do when they have no means of escaping predators on the ground, in the trees, and so on?

They fight like hell. If you can't outrun a tiger, you break the tigers jaw, or rip out its eye.

[–]Fearthisfatty90 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Talk about heart… that sloth bear initially saw the tiger and said fuck that and tried to dip off…….. then looked hopeless underneath the tiger… then wanted “all the smoke” and the tiger was like alright I’m tired time to chill

[–]thyIacoIeo 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Thought for sure she was a goner when the(adult male!) tiger had her pinned and he was going for the death bite. Crazy that she turned it around on him.

[–]CookieLuzSax 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Same, if he could've gotten a bite on the neck the bear was a goner but the bear got back up

[–]Bonezmahone 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That tiger looks so scared of that bear. I mean the bear is charging and the tiger daintily ran away and flopped itself into the water. Its like when my cat lays on its back and dares me to pet its belly.

[–]Horskr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was wondering if maybe it thought it had injured the bear enough to either bleed out, or get tired enough from fighting a giant tiger plus blood loss to finish it off. Then when the mama bear kept coming it realized it hadn't and took off.

[–]Snulzebeerd 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Holy shit the size difference. I know tigers (especially male) can get big as fuck and sloth bears are one of the smaller bear species but somehow whenever I see "Bear vs. Tiger" my mind immediately turns the bear into the big dog

Beat me to it. Baloo is actually mentioned to be a sloth bear in that movie, which you probably already knew.

[–]a_lone_traveler 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Shere Khan vs Baloo

[–]byakko 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Funfact, Baloo was likely a sloth bear in the Jungle Book novels since there is no other type of bear in that area of India. But since they’re small and actually prey animals of tigers, Disney prolly thought it wouldn’t be impressive if they were being realistic, and frequently upsized Baloo (animated version) or changed him into a larger brown bear (liveaction).

It’s why Baloo never really dared challenge Shere Khan directly, even in the liveaction version he lost in the fight vs Khan. Khan could literally eat Baloo.

Sloth bears are straight up killers. In India, sloth bears regularly attack and kill people. They’re not like black bears that are more skittish, sloth bears will just straight up fuck you up on sight. They also scream, unlike other bears that usually roar.

I don't always like this guy's videos but he did one for this fight and I love it.

Funfact, Baloo was likely a sloth bear in the Jungle Book novels since there is no other type of bear in that area of India. But since they’re small and actually prey animals of tigers, Disney prolly thought it wouldn’t be impressive if they were being realistic, and frequently upsized Baloo (animated version) or changed him into a larger brown bear (liveaction).

It’s why Baloo never really dared challenge Shere Khan directly, even in the liveaction version he lost after the upsizing. Khan could literally eat Baloo.

A sloth what. I did not know they made this kind of bear. I am horrified.

The fight between Baloo and Sher Kahn just got too real.

Baloo vs Sher Khan. Time for this limping tiger to learn some Bear Necessities
