A fight between the African Lion and Nile crocodile can be said to be a battle of the titans as both of them are legendry in their own way. They are found in the same continent and sometimes in the same geographic and climatic locations. Both are so powerful that it would be difficult to predict the outcome of a combat between the two animals.

For one to win, they not only need physical strength but also wit, speed, maneuverability, intelligence and perseverance. These two animals have been sighted and recorded fighting a number of times. In most cases the lion emerges as the winner. However, lions come out as winners but sustain wounds that are sometimes fatal. Here are facts and information about the two animals.

African Lion facts and information

  • Scientific name is Panthera leo.
  • Males are larger than females.
  • Males normally have a maximum head and body length of 3 meters while females have a maximum of 1.75 meters.
  • Males can weigh up to 250 kg while females weigh a maximum of 180 kg.
  • Are categorized as ‘vulnerable’ as their population has been steadily declining.
  • Poaching is the biggest threat to their survival.
  • Social animals that live in groups of up to 30 members.
  • They are the only members of the cat family that live in groups.
  • A pride of lions may consist of up to three males, more than a dozen females and several cubs.
  • All females in a pride are normally related.
  • Once male cubs reach maturity (about 2 years), they leave the pride to go take over other prides. When taking over a pride, a male lion would typically kill the male lions and all the cabs in that pride.
  • Males normally dominate a pride for a maximum of three years before being ‘overthrown’ by younger and stronger lions that have been chased from their birth prides.
  • Territorial animals that fiercely fight to defend their territories.
  • Mark their territories by leaving a strong urine scent and through strong roars.
  • A pride’s territory may be as large as 150 square kilometers but normally smaller.
  • Females do the hunting most of the time.
  • Males take the role of protecting the territory and guarding young ones.
  • Females hunt in groups as opposed to solo hunts.
  • Once a hunting mission is successful, male ones eat first followed by females and then young ones come last in that pecking order.
  • Carnivorous animals that feed on wildebeest, zebras, antelopes, buffaloes, giraffes, crocodiles, hares, hogs, hippos, rhinos, young elephants, mice and other wild animals.
  • Sometimes snatch food from other hunters such as Hyenas and wild dogs.
  • Originally roamed the forests of Africa, Asia and Europe but are now majorly found in the African grassland and woodland savanna.
  • Lifespan in the wild is up to 14 years.
  • Can be heard roaring from a distance of 8 kilometers away.
  • Sleep for up to 20 hours each day.
  • A female African lion can give birth to a maximum of 4 cubs in each reproduction cycle.
  • In most cases, several females in a pride give birth around the same time. The cubs are subsequently raised communally.
  • Gestation period is about 110 days.

Nile crocodile Facts and Information

  • Scientific name is Crocodylus niloticus.
  • Second largest of the three species of crocodiles found in Africa.
  • Average length is 5 meters (16 feet).
  • Maximum length is 6 meters (20 feet).
  • Average weight is 230 kg (500 pounds).
  • Maximum weight is 750 kg (1650 pounds.)
  • Known to attack and eat any living being including humans. It is estimated that up to 200 people are killed by Nile crocodiles annually.
  • Mostly feed on fish and animals that frequent water bodies including zebras, birds, hippos, porcupines, gazelles etc.
  • Are endemic to and mostly found in the Nile river basin, Sub-Saharan Africa and the sub-continent of Madagascar. Mostly live in freshwater bodies and mangrove swamps.
  • Are not endangered species.
  • Can eat up to half its weight at time.
  • Both males and females take care of their young ones. They both guard and take care of eggs until hutching.
  • Biggest threat to survival is hunting and habitat loss.
  • Has 68 teeth.
  • Even though it has many teeth, it cannot chew after a bite. Normally bites huge chunks of meat before swallowing in full.
  • Eyes, ears and nostrils are located at the top of the head and therefore they can manage to submerge almost their entire bodies and move undetected.
  • Current population is less than half a million but more than a quarter a million.
  • Sex of the hatchlings is dependent on the average temperature at certain times during egg incubation.
  • Incubation period is between 80 and 90 days.
  • Females can lay up to 60 eggs in one season.
  • For incubation, eggs are normally hidden near water bodies and stay heavily guarded by mature male and female crocodiles.

The duel between the African Lion vs Nile Crocodile

A battle between these two animals may take dozens of minutes or even hours as both of them are strong fighters and never give up easily. The African lion, commonly referred to as the king of the jungle is an agile animal with strong jaws and canines that can tear apart the crocodile.

The crocodile on the other hand has powerful jaws with a grip that can instantly break strong bones. Both animals are capable of killing each other even though none of them is venomous. Both rely on their physical strength to win the war. It is said that a Nile crocodile has a jaw grip that is equivalent to more than one ton of weight applied per square inch.

Sometimes the lion has an upper hand because it is a flexible animal that can jump several feet into the air. The crocodile on the other hand is a rigid animal that cannot jump as high as an African lion. When the two animals are fighting, lions mostly pounce on the crocodile’s neck before strangling it to death.

The lion can also turn out to be a great meal for the crocodile if it is not careful. This is because if the crocodile manages to grip the lion, it will not let go until the lion is dead. In most cases crocodiles waylay lions at water points and attack lions that have come to quench their thirst. Crocodiles normally hide their body under water and swim steadily not to alert the lion. They then attack when the lion least expects and within a few seconds the lion is trapped between the strong jaws of the crocodiles with the crocodile’s canine teeth deep inside the lion’s flesh.

Though rare, sometimes lions jump into water to catch crocodiles. Most times African lions hide in bushes near water points waiting for crocodiles to come out of the water for basking. The lion is so good at camouflaging with the surrounding that crocodiles don’t normally discover they are being trapped until it is too late to run away and hide.

The muscle in a crocodile’s tail and its course and tough hide is also sometimes used as a weapon to defend itself. The only way a lion can kill a crocodile is if it ambushes it without notice. The opposite is also true as there is no way a crocodile can kill a lion unless it ensnares it.

To increase success rate, lions normally target smaller crocodiles while avoiding larger ones. A large crocodile is not easy to kill even if it is attacked by several large lions. On the other hand, crocodiles mostly rely on their ability to stay under water for so long without having to breathe. A hunting crocodile will clasp a lion and drag it under water where it stays for several minutes waiting for the lion to drown.

These two animals have equal chances of winning. The winner is determined by the location of the fight and the first one to attack.

    The ludicrous ‘Animal Face-off’ imaginary simulation vid – is included as a lame joke – right?

    There are real African wildlife encounter vids that show pride boss male lions regularly intimidating crocs..
    & even quite remarkable vids of lions shrugging off croc attacks while swimming.

    Obviously both creatures have the capability to harm each other, & to disrespect the weaponry of the other
    carelessly could be fatal for either protagonist.

    I think its fair to state that the comfort zone for each beast is when each is in their natural element, but
    the reflexively powerful strike from a lion’s sharp clawed paw, follwed by a crushing bite with deeply penetrating
    canine teeth – certainly capable of punching into the crocs brain case – is for sure – in a different league from a panicked antelope’s attempt to flee, & the video evidence confirms that crocs respect this.

    The amazing spectacle of a large male lion facing down a huge croc at rivers edge, literally roaring straight
    down the crocs gaping maw, quite fearlessly, & forcing the croc to back down – is far more real than the silly ‘Animal Face-off scenario.. obviously the croc feels the aggression in the sonic force of that roar – as really intimidating..

    Hassling most every other potential prey animal – or rival animal – they come across – is lion SOP..

      WHAT COULD BEAT A MALE LION TO YOU JAMES? That is, a mammalian land predator. I can see that you are quite biased towards a lion. I have no doubts that a lion could defeat a nile crocodile, but you’re ludicrous claims about lions roaring down the croc’s maw is…simply wrong. I’ve seen documentaries where lions have not crossed rivers because crocodiles are prowling the waters. Lions almost never tangle with gigantic crocodiles like indicated in this thread. The crocodile in this thread weighs 900-1000 kg.

      Are you aware of how small the crocodile is? I’d call that thing more fearless than the lion for taking on the lion, as that crocodile was outweighed in that scenario. However, here is a different story. The crocodile here MASSIVELY outweighs the lion, and no crocodile with that weight advantage would surrender.

            – lions – will only live long enough to grow to maturity,
            if they demonstrate the proper respect & caution towards lions..

            Once mature, crocs well know lions are violently aggressive creatures
            which are not to be trifled with, since lions are both well armed &
            by nature, boldly disposed to express their powers – in an instant..

    Have you even seen how crocs act around lions? Lions will choose not to cross rivers because of crocodiles. Once again, a crocodile of this size would be just as willing to kill as the lion. This croc wouldn’t care if the lion roared at it; it would just rip it’s head off. This size of crocodile would kill anything it could catch. Including lions.

        The Nile Crocodile has a way stronger psi then a mere lion. If a lion is brave/ stupid enough to actually attack a crocodile, the claws wouldn’t even pierce its scales. Crocodilians have been evolving for millions of years. DO you think a lion could really beat a reptile, that outlived, and outclassed the dinosaurs?

          Crocs do not like being bitten or viciously struck,

            This crocodile is the size of GUSTAVE, who took a hit from a f***ing ROCKET LAUNCHER! How could a lion even hope to hurt a crocodile of this size? Also, no, lions are not “THE dominant apex predator”, as they are killed by many things. That would be killer whales. You are wrong James and have not proven anything to the contrary. You are simply a biased, preposterous fool. Do you understand the size difference here? Most likely not, considering you cannot count higher than 10, but try to understand. This crocodile is 5.5 TIMES the size of the lion. This is like you fighting a toddler with a knife. Oh, wait, you are a toddler so that example doesn’t work. It would be like me, in full body armor with a gun, fighting a toddler with a knife. Sorry James, but you are wrong once again.

        1 YouTube link shows a lion roaring at a small crocodile, and the other shows a crocodile killing a lion in animal face off. Once again, a crocodile of this size is as large as the largest Nile crocodile ever recorded, Gustav. Gustav would be able to easily break a lions neck with one bite, considering the Nile crocodiles bite force is 3,700 PSI. It would be able with 1 bite cripple the lion, while the lion would have to claw and bite the crocodile many times to do any damage. Crocodiles backs are BULLETPROOF, and I’d like to see the lion flip a <2000 pound crocodile without getting bit, you moron.

      Also, why the hell do you treat lions as unkillable, perfect killing machines? They don’t kill many people per year, and many animals DESTROY lions 1 v 1. Yet, you don’t understand this. You seem to think that lions are the king of beasts, which is a joke. A pure, unadulterated joke. By the way, crocodiles have been around FAR longer than lions, before the dinosaurs even. This would hint that crocodiles are perfectly evolved killing machines, not your overgrown kitty cats.

    Unaware,
    rudely pig ignorant as you are,

    I suggest you try to grasp the basic concepts of evolution..
    Cats, like humans, are a recent development, with adaptations
    which grant superior functional characteristics, which is why they
    are to be found in most zones suitable to functional habitation…

    Unlike crocodilians, which, even as an evolutionary exemplar of their type,
    are necessarily self-limited to a mandatory niche existence.

    & in the co-habitation zones of lions & crocs, lions are boss, period.
    Crocodiles who fail to be circumspect around lions do not reach maturity,
    & those who do, certainly recall why it is unwise to challenge the ‘King of Beasts’!
    Or, suffer the consequences, just as all others do – when confronted by the primary predator,
    esp’ when arrayed in his ‘Kingly’ pride boss/male coalition social configuration..

    Observe some cogent data sets, such have been recorded, of a truly dominant lion pride,
    the frankly awesome nature of this situation is undeniable, even for a willfully purblind ‘fool’..

    Yet even when solitary, or in a pair unit, as was the case for ‘Barbary lions’ – historically, the ‘King’
    was not to be trifled with, & also did not besmirch his rep’ by creeping around filthy garbage dumps…

      Would you look up Gustave, please? PLEASE? Nothing you say means anything because none of it has any evidence and all you do is repeat the same thing about dumpsters. Why are you so obsessed with dumpsters? You said I dumpster dive, but I think that might be you, based on your obsession with them. How about Deinosuchus? Those things would own any cat that has every existed. Do you know what Deinosuchus was? A fifty-foot long crocodile. Literally, a Gustave sized crocodile would have no problems killing a lion. In fact, Gustave actively hunts HIPPOS. http://www.factfiend.com/gustave-bullet-proof-crocodile-burundi/
      Check out that link and see what I mean. This size of crocodile would have no quarrels or problems killing a lion. You wish to bring up extinct lions? I’ll bring up extinct crocodiles, which would own extinct and modern lions. The reason crocodiles have never evolved is because they are apex predators, and have no need to evolve.

        Of course crocs evolved, they had to, as they survived &
        filled the ecological niche left by the larger, but extinct reptiles.

        However, they are limited to that niche, whereas humans & cats,
        being so functional with a later, more adaptable evolutionary lifestyle,
        are far more successful/formidable… than those scaly old creepy-crawly crocs..

            No real citation references, ‘cept kids sites sans credibility,
            & resort to ad hominem insults such as “idiot?

            FYI, ‘ad hominem’ means ‘against man’, crocs are fair game..

            No doubt a croc would scavenge the body of an incapacitated lion, when & if
            given the opportunity, but in the case of massive clawed paw strike to the head 1-1 confrontation, the croc knows its going to be getting a hiding, & will retreat to the depths, ASAP… just how is it you don’t get this…

            More proof?
            Skilled men can take control of a croc – with a roll of duct tape.. they’d never try that
            trick with a wild pride boss lion, though – would they…

            No you moron, as hominem means changing the subject into personal attacks, or attacking the subject. Not against man. Why are you insulting my evidence when you have not put a shred of evidence yourself? But, I honestly don’t have time for this. You are so obviously a troll that it hurts.

      I recently saw a video, which I will try to find and link here, where a mega pride of 17 lions could not take down one female hippo, while a crocodile of this size (Gustave) actively hunts hippos. So, based on logic, you could say that a crocodile of this size is greater than 17 lions.

      As if. The croc is far more powerful. It takes a while pride of lions to take down 1 buffalo or zebra, whereas the crocodile can do it solo. Even a 12 footer can do it. And a crocodile’s center of gravity is so low to the ground that it’s near impossible for a lion to flip it over. And the crocodile has bony armor under its skin, supporting what Undoomed was stating as a sound and factual statement that the crocodile hide is almost bulletproof, and can certainly withstand the teeth and claws of a lion.

    On land, a lion would win. While the crocodile could cripple it with it’s powerful bite, the lion would be too fast, strong, and agile for a croc to achieve this on land. The lion would wear it out on land and eventually land a killer blow to the skull of the crocodile, instantly killing it.

    In water, the croc might win because it has the advantage of attacking the lion without the lion noticing. However, there are videos on Youtube of adolescent lions surviving croc attacks in water.

    As a general rule, lions ignore crocodiles they do not considered them as potential preys. But there are exceptions. Water is crocodile domain and land the lion’s domain. The other side of the story there is the Zimbabwe’s Lake Kariba crocodile-killer lions. Adult crocodiles were killed by young male lions. Many videos shows a dominant male lion in shallow waters facing a group of crocodiles. Crocodiles have great respect for the king of the beasts.

    what is it with this argument a crocodile destroys lion on land and in water
    weight lion 600 pounds croc 2000 pounds
    a crocs tail alone has more muscle than lions entire body bite force lion 650 pounds croc 5000 pounds
    and crocs skin is bulletproof
    bottom line crocs would pulverize lions

    Reply
  17. AP

    Jake,
    Yeah, that is questionable…

    Sure, theoretically, a crocodile could “pulverize” a lion on land, but that is unlikely.

    The crocodile has heavier pressure jaws, but the lions jaws are meant for slicing through the tough hide of animals like Cape buffalo. The crocodile can’t do that. They have to rip their prey’s limbs off. The only way a crocodile can do that to the lion is with a well timed ambush – and even than it is a tall order.

    On land, the lion is faster and more agile – so even if the croc had T-Rex power jaws, it would never get a chance to implement the killer bite. The lion would out maneuver it and go for a killer blow to the croc’s skull – the video of a <130 kg tigress killing a 14 foot crocodile on Youtube proves this.

        That tiger was a very small one – it was less than 140 kg. Also, if you read that article carefully, forest officials said that it was a very rare thing for a crocodile to kill a tiger. In India, Bengal tigers regularily prey on crocodiles – even big ones.

        Two more things about that article:
        1) The fight took place in deep water – so naturally the croc had the advantage.
        2) The croc ambushed the tiger.

        Reply
  18. AP

    And FYI, that 650 PSI, came from a juvenile lion. An adult’s bite force is closer to 1000 PSI.
    But, for the reasons mentioned above, bite force won’t play a huger role.

    Deep Water: Croc wins 8-9/10 times.
    Shallow Water: Croc wins 5-6/10 times.
    Land: Lion wins 8/10 times.

        With all due respect, that is a poor analogy. Just like crocodiles, lions can and have dragged heavy buffalo carcasses for several miles. Despite being much lighter, lions are just as strong (if not stronger than) as crocodiles.

      You should really do some research about this topic. In 1857, Bern Bengt witnessed a Bengal tiger killing a 2000+ pound Indian gaur with a neck twist. Field researched Joubert witnessed a male lion killing a bull eland with one blow of its paw.

      And lastly, a small tigress killed a 14 foot Mugger croc with a bite to the head – it is entirely predictable that a large male lion/tiger would be able to do that to a 20 foot croc.

          In deep water? Sure. On land – no. On land, the crocodile would never get the chance to implement the killer bite on the lion/tiger – they are too fast and agile.

            Actually Jake,
            Where the fight takes place will affect the outcome. Crocodiles are the most dangerous in water – but they are fairly vulnerable on land.

            Also, it is a misconception that crocodile skin is bulletproof. Yes, its true that a crocodile skin can take a lot of abuse – and they might even survive a shot from small pistol, but most large modern day guns can kill a croc with one hit.

            See this link for more info: http://www.alligatorleather.net/is-alligator-leather-bullet-proof/

          Lions are capable of taking down large prey solo – they just prefer to hunt in prides, thats it.

          And I have three problems with that news of the croc killing the tiger:

          1) Though it was an adult, the tiger was exceptionally small.
          2) The croc ambushed the tiger – it was not a fair, face to face fight.
          3) That same article clearly said that forest officials stated a crocodile killing a tiger was a rare sighting. In India, even the largest of crocodiles fall prey to tigers. In fact, tigers love eating crocodile meat – it is their prey of choice.

            On the flip side, a small Bengal tigress named “Machli” (she passed away is 2016, unfortunately), killed a 14 foot Mugger crocodile, in a face to face fight on land in order to protect her cubs.

          2. jake

            1 yes it was smaller than most Bengal tigers but it was atlas the same size or bigger than machili
            2 machili attacked the same croc from behind so yeah also not a fair fight
            3 the only tiger attack on crocodile I could find was machili so yes the forest officials were wrong no in India tigers and crocs rarely ever fight each other tigers don´t eat crocs were did you get that notion from the tigers prey of choice is deer not crocs

            and were did you get the notion of the croc machli killed was 14 feet long its head was barely bigger than machli

          4. AP

            ” 1 yes it was smaller than most Bengal tigers but it was atlas the same size or bigger than machili”

            True – but the fight took place in water, AND, more importantly, it was an ambush – so everything was in favor of the croc, making it an unfair fight.

            “2 machili attacked the same croc from behind so yeah also not a fair fight”

            Ah.. no. If you watch the video carefully, you will see that initially, both animals are face to face. The crocodile attempts to cripple Machli with it’s jaws, but she outmaneuvers him, and kills the croc with a bite to the head.

            The reason you don’t find videos of tiger fighting crocodiles is because it is hard to record those fights in the dense jungles of India – they certainly do happen, even if you have not seen them. And tigers do prefer deer – but crocs are on the menu to…

    Don’t get me wrong – crocs are faster than they are given credit for. However, as the saying goes, “cat like reflexes”. Cats have the best reflexes among all mammals. A crocodile could indeed kill a lion with a well timed ambush, but it is far more likely that the lion would dodge it.

        Don’t worry – I am not discrediting crocs – just stating facts. I have heard of Gustave. AFAIK, those stories of him killing adult hippos were never verified. In fact, in Africa, Nile crocs will only attack hippo calves – it is well known that one bite from a hippo can kill a crocodile.

        Believe it or not, a 600 pound male tiger can kill a rhino.

      Also, the average weight of a crocodile is nowhere near 4000 pounds. Nile crocs and salties average a 1000 pounds, with large males going up to 2000. 4000 pounds is an exceptionally large specimen.

      Since tigers hunt rhinos, and crocs avoid hippos, its fair to say that tigers are superior in this sense.

      Its true that lions and tigers go for elephant calves – but they can also take down juveniles/subadults. Crocs would not be able to do that since they fear hippos.

      And we are talking on average – so ~30 foot crocs don’t count. And like I mentioned earlier, the larger a croc gets, the less agile it becomes – that is a bad thing when you are fighting a big cat.

          So? It is still an impressive feat. The rhinos in Asia might be smaller than the ones in Africa, but they outweigh tigers like eight times – and yet tigers can bring them down. And Asian rhinos are still bigger than African hippos, who harass crocs all the time.

    Wrong – agility and stamina are why the lion/tiger will win this fight. The lion/tiger’s immense speed and reflexes will prevent the croc from implementing the killer bite. And yes, once the lion/tiger sits on top of the croc, and sinks its 3-4 inch canines through the crocs head, it is goodnight vienna for the croc.

      false a lion/tiger can barely run full speed for a few seconds. a croc is one of the fastest animals in terms of striking speed not travel speed so yes a croc can implement the killing bite. how will the lion or tiger get on the crocs back when the croc is constantly moving its jaws at the lion/tigers direction. In a youtube video called lions vs crocodile a pride of lions attacked a small croc on land and the croc managed to stop every single one of the prides attempt to kill it.

        Sadly Jake, you don’t seem to do any research. No animal – besides maybe wild dogs, can run full speed for extended periods of time. Even wolves and hyenas can’t run full speed for miles. What you fail to understand is that lions and tigers regularily patrol their territory by trotting slowly – they can do that for 100+ miles.

          A croc’s striking speed ~30 MPH. Lions and tigers can run ~40 – 50 mph. So yes, they can dodge a croc’s strike. It is only via ambush that crocs can implement the killer bite on a lion/tiger. On land, in a face to face fight, the crocs chances of doing so are fairly slim.

            The croc does not have a very mobile neck – they can’t twist their head 360 degrees – this will allow the lion/tiger to pin the croc, and go for a fatal skull bite.

            And as far as that Youtube vid, predators avoid injury, so they won’t indulge in unnecessary conflict.

          2. jake

            dude i do my research the fastest lionesses reach 50 mph males can barely run at 35 mph
            also no tigers can run 50 mph that is ludicrous . google sites say a tigers speed is at maximum 40 mph still fast don´t get me wrong

            Jake, do some more than. Male lions are very much capable of reaching 50 mph. And search up “Siberian tiger speed” on google. Tigers of the Amur (aka Siberian) subspecies can easily reach 50 mph.

            Jake, best you stop closing cases and do some more research… The reason lions turn around or avoid those confrontations is because they don’t want to risk injury – this is a hypothetical battle in which both animals are pressed to fight. And the croc won’t stand still – it will be helpless. A large crocodile is not agile enough to get a lion/tiger of it’s back.

          6. jake

            male lions run at 35-40 mph that is fast but 50 mph only the fastest female lion can pull that off so what if the tiger can run 50 mph it even states it can only run that fast for short distances but this is not a race between a lion or croc this is a hypothetical fight and since when does travel speed matter in a fight its the striking speed and crocs are one of the fastest animals in terms of striking speed not travel speed I even said it before

          7. AP

            “male lions run at 35-40 mph that is fast but 50 mph only the fastest female lion can pull that off so what if the tiger can run 50 mph it even states it can only run that fast for short distances but this is not a race between a lion or croc this is a hypothetical fight and since when does travel speed matter in a fight its the striking speed and crocs are one of the fastest animals in terms of striking speed not travel speed I even said it before”

            Well, I a’int talking about average speed – I am talking about top speed – and yes, both male and female lions/tigers can reach ~50 mph. And as I said earlier, besides maybe wild dogs, no animal can run that fast for long distances. And how fast an animal initially takes off, does affect their striking speed. Big cats in general have better reflexes than reptiles – so they can easily dodge an attack.

          8. jake

            dude the bigger the animal gets the slower it gets most of the time but anyways if you want to use top speed fine but this is a fight not a race its the striking speed not travel speed that matters here

  23. AP

    And there is one more thing you forgot to consider: Stamina. While felines have a bad reputation of having poor stamina, crocs have it even worse. Crocs tend to build up lactic acid very quickly – as a result, on land, they can’t fight for long periods of time.

            Smithsonian says lions have poor stamina in the sense that they can’t run full speed for miles – but again, very few, if any, animals can do that.

      not all crocs have just as thick skin look at a nile and saltwater crocodiles scales and the nile has bigger and thicker scales also gators have thicker skins than crocs. muggers have one of the weakest I’m not saying their armor is weak it is just not as thick as a nile crocs also lions have a hard time getting through a buffalo´s skin what makes you think it can do it to a lion also machli went for the back of the head of the mugger not its neck

        First off, lions don not have trouble getting through buffalo’s skin – their canines are designed to penetrate the tough hide of large animals.

        And the difference in how thick the skin is is not significant. And the croc was lucky that Machli went for the head, not the neck. If you study the croc’s anatomy, the back of their neck is fairly soft.

        Jokes aside, it was probably easier for her to that because she was small, out of her prime, tigress. A large male tiger could have gone for the back of the neck, easily.

        And FYI: There have been cases in India where crocodiles will attempt to bite down on a swimming crocodile, but the tiger blinds the croc using it’s claws.

            So? A buffalo’s skull is also a “solid hunk of bone” – yet tiger’s break them about as easily as you would break a pretzel. Even a small tigress (of the Amur subspecies), can generate ~10,000 N (Newtons) of force with one paw swipe – it takes only 4000 N to break a bone…

          4. jake

            crocs snout can survive the stress from the crocs bite force also even if that tiger broke crocs snout (which is highly unlikely) the croc can survive that and keep on fighting

        2) The croc ambushed the tiger – it was not a fair, face to face fight.

            1) It did not say in the article that the tiger was small, BUT, it said that the tiger was from the sundarbans – male tigers from that region hardly average 140 kg.
            2) Tigers do prey on crocodiles – you can not find any videos on Youtube because it is hard to record fights in the dense jungles of India.

            And naturally Jake, you failed to notice that in both of the articles you linked, forest officials said the following (exact words I am quoting from the article):

            “…attacks from tigers on crocodiles were common – a crocodile was killed recently in Ranthambore tiger reserve. “However, this is the first time we have heard of an attack by crocodiles on a tiger.”

            “do you know how smart crocs are ( smartest of all reptiles – and way smarter than yo tiger)”
            In fantasy world, I guess, not in reality though…

            “mugger crocodiles have even learned a new trick to catch birds that not even a tiger could learn in 10 years. they swim under sticks underwater then birds fly down to grab the sticks then the croc grabs
            the bird easy and smart way to catch birds
            crocs use tools while yo tiger can´t”

            L.O.L… You know nothing about tigers, do you? Tigers have been known to imitate the call of other animals like deers, in order to attract prey. This is something your beloved croc could not learn in “10 years”. There is nothing special about your mugger croc – they are just camaflouging themselves, nothing else – even tigers use their majestic orange coat and black stripes to hide in tall grasses and ambush prey – so what?

          2. AP

            That “giant cat with stripes” would have expertly and brutally murdered those overgrown lizards if they tried to steal his kill again…

          3. jake

            why do crocs even need to imitate animals to catch them intact I doubt in 20 years a tiger can learn to use tools or did you ignorantly not read my comment a mugger croc can use sticks to lure birds near it then seize them more impressive than imitating animals

            what part of the narrator said the crocs don´t even want the sambar anymore do you not understand if the crocs wanted to the giant cat with stripes would not make it to shore

            Imitating animals would help the croc hunt them.

            Looks like you did not understand what I said, did you? They use the sticks to help themselves camaflouge…

            dude try to read my comment without going crazy

            a mugger croc swims under twigs the bird would swoop down to get the twigs then the croc catches the bird

            what is more impressive using tools or imitating a deer

          7. AP

            I am not going “crazy” lmao. Both are impressive, but imitating a deer’s call is more impressive because very few animals can do that. On the flip side, gorillas, bears, chimps, and even hyenas can use tools.

      1. AP

        I did not measure the croc, neither did you… but the boss lion backed him off anyway…

        How can you say with certainty they were small? Half the croc’s body was in the water…

        Plus, even if the crocs were small, there were a number of them surrounding the lion. They could have all attacked at the same time – but they did not – because they were aware of the consequences…

          how Can I say the croc was small look at the head size the crocs head was barely bigger than the lions

          if the croc was 14 its head should be double the lions head size

            Well… even big crocs don’t have a larger head than a lion – they have a LONGER head…

            Plus, they were in a group – and they are territorial animals – so they might attack if they are not hungry – but they did not …

            crocs head is not only longer but its also heavier therefore its bigger

          dude they can’t be the same size like I said a black caimans biggest size is 16 ft yes they can exceed that but they will only be the same size as a nile or saltie if they are both 16 feet but the nile and saltwater crocs size is 20 ft or more

          Reply

            Can you read? It says they can EXCEED 16 ft, so it is entirely predictable that some caimens are 20 ft. Just google it dude.

          2. jake

            no they can´t reach 20 ft its states few caiman males exceed 16 ft or weigh heavier than 900 lbs

        2. jake

          dude these is like when we argued the size of sardarbans tiger size the black caiman rarely grows to 16 feet and 900 pounds so what makes you think they can grow to 20 ft

          also I never said 16 feet is the black caimans size limit I said few rarely exceeds it
          so its very unlikely they could reach 20 ft

            It is unlikely, but they can reach those sizes – thats my point.

          2. AP

            And 16 feet is huge also – it is close to a nile/salties length.

          3. jake

            16 feet is close to nile/salties length yes only 4 feet shorter
            but look at the weight a 16 ft salties weighs over 1400 lbs while black caiman at 16ft weighs 900 pounds

          4. jake

            okay you proved your point I just mistaken it for you meaning a black caiman is the same size as a nile or saltie

          5. AP

            You do understand that the increase in weight is a disadvantage against a big cat, right?

            Heavier crocs lack the mobility and agility to shrug off a big cat – they are too slow, heavy, and sluggish.

            even big crocs with short legs can run with their bellies partially of the ground but again this is a fight not a race all the croc would need to do is turn around sideways and gave his jaws face the lion and the lion ain´t getting through the crocs defenses and even if a get gets on top of the croc the croc could just roll over and crush the cat with its sheer weight

          3. AP

            Jake,
            That is a very poor analogy. Humans and gorillas do NOT think and act in the same manner.

            Domestic cats, on the other hand, have the same predatory instincts and intellect as big cats. It is well known that if they were the size of large dogs, like Bull Mastiffs or Rottweillers, they would prey on us.

          4. AP

            Since their predatory instincts are as good as big cats, it is entirely predictable that their intellect is about the same to, more or less.

          5. jake

            dude
            house cats see what we humans do everyday including flushing toilets so I’m not

          6. jake

            your argument is still not valid just because cat shares 95% of its dna to big cats doesn’t mean big cats can do everything a cat can like flushing toilets or anything else

          7. AP

            In case you did not know, wild animals are always more intelligent than domestic ones.

            For example, dogs are considered to be extremely smart – yet they are outclassed by wolves when it comes to intelligence.

            Similarly, big cats are much smarter than domestic ones.

          8. AP

            And one more thing Jake,

            Contrary to popular belief, despite living solitary lives, tigers are amazing at working together in groups. There have been many cases where tigers in captivity have worked together in order to escape to the wild. That is far more impressive than using sticks to lure a bird into water.

          9. jake

            crocs can also work together when a hippo dies crocs from all stretches of the river come and help each other get a piece of meat and they don´t fight and you said crocs have “peony” brains guess you have the “peony” brains

  32. AP

    And cats have been known to flush toilets also, just saying…

    I doubt crocs possess the intellect to do that…

    Reply
        1. jake

          my point is domesticated cats see what we humans do every day so I’m not surprised
          also for the house cats and big cats share 95% DNA its invalid cause take humans and chimpanzees for example your argument is like saying a human shares 95% of our dna with gorillas but will gorillas ever come even close to human intellect no

    & one more thing Finn,
    The tiger was voted as the world’s favorite animal for a reason – the lion came somewhere in the top ten or fifteen. This test was conducted by Animal Planet.

    People admire the tiger’s majestic orange coat, white fur, blacks stripes, & the lion’s beautiful mane far more than the crocodile’s dumbass scaly, creepy body.

    Records show that lions & tigers are the top predators – crocs come nowhere near them. Cats – from the peony house cat, to desert cats, to powerful felines like lions & tigers, dominate all sorts of reptiles. Too bad for your futile fantasies, huh kid? Aww… go on, have a little cry, build a little bridge, & accept things the way they are.

            Finn, jaguars preys on all types of anacondas – including “a 25 ft 500 lbs serpent”.

            “a komodo dragon weighs twice as much as the leopard and it has a venomous bite that would make the leopard bleed till its dead”

            Komodo dragons max out @ 170 lbs, leopards max out 200 lbs – 170 is not ” twice as much as” 200 dumb retard. And FYI, the dragon will never be able to catch the leopard – even house cats can dodge bites from venomous snakes, moron… L.O.L…

            mr. can´t even use common sense is mad

            yo do your research

            a 25 ft 500lbs anaconda would devour your lion and jaguar

            a 360 pound Komodo dragon is not obese that is like saying a 600 pound Bengal tiger is obese also your leopard would be lucky if he ever reaches 200 pounds. and what part of tough armored skin don´t you understand a Komodo dragons scales are nearly as though as a crocodiles

            2000 pound water dragon vs 700 pound cat with stripes the winner is obvious

          5. AP

            Jake,
            First off, 500+ lbs anacondas are rare – this is not Hollywood.

            Most large anacondas are closer to 300 lbs – the same as a jaguar.

            Secondly, a 500+ lb anaconda would not be fast enough to constrict the jaguar/lion – and even if it did get its coils around the them – the cats would just tear them apart using their teeth and claws.

          6. AP

            Fine, there might be some 360 lb Komodo dragons – but they are rare. Worst case, it would just be a draw. Even a wild and healthy 360 lb komodo dragon would be slower than a 170 – 200 lb one – and FYI: a desperate leopard can penetrate through the dragon’s hide if it really wants to.

            And I addressed tiger vs croc in another reply.

            when an anaconda constricts the jaguar/lion they ain´t escaping unless they are very lucky
            yes 500lbs snakes are rare but my point was Jaguar can take down small-medium sized anacondas but a 25ft one I have to disagree

          8. jake

            i am not crazy I know a 360lbs dragon is a rarity but so is the 200lbs leopard
            also has the leopard ever bitten through hide nearly as strong as a crocodile
            no also Komodo dragons on average are mostly the same size as a leopard
            but their biggest the dragon is nearly twice the leopards weight

          9. AP

            “when an anaconda constricts the jaguar/lion they ain´t escaping unless they are very lucky”
            Believe it or not, huge anacondas have constricted jaguars before – but the jaguar managed to escape and even kill the snake. There is a reason why the jaguar – not the anaconda, was given the title “Apex predator” of the Amazon rainforests.

            “yes 500lbs snakes are rare but my point was Jaguar can take down small-medium sized anacondas but a 25ft one I have to disagree”
            You might change your mind when you learn that a leopard managed to kill a 25 foot rock python with a bite to the head…

          10. AP

            “i am not crazy I know a 360lbs dragon is a rarity but so is the 200lbs leopard”

            Its just that you are far more likely to find a 200 lbs leopard than a 360 lbs komodo dragon.

            “also has the leopard ever bitten through hide nearly as strong as a crocodile”
            Yes. There is a video on Youtube of a leopard killing a small crocodile.

            “no also Komodo dragons on average are mostly the same size as a leopard
            but their biggest the dragon is nearly twice the leopards weight”
            Well, I guess you could say that the largest komodo dragons are twice the average leopard’s weight? But I doubt that the largest komodo dragons are twice the largest leopard’s weight.

          11. jake

            ap the leopard went for the back of the head of the croc but surprise the Komodo even has armor on his or her head
            also 360lbs is the biggest Komodo dragon ever weighed
            200 lbs is the heviest leopard the Komodo is off by 40 pounds hence why I said
            the biggest dragon is nearly twice the biggest leopards size

            the Komodo is the winner here

          12. AP

            Jake,
            You are saying that komodo dragon’s have a harder head than crocs?

            Here is my take on komodo dragon vs leopard:

            If the leopard is bigger, it will win.

            If they are the same weight, it could go either way.

            If the komodo dragon is significantly heavier, than it will win.

          13. AP

            Believe it or not Jake,
            There are some leopards in the wild which weighed ~250 lbs.

    Alright dude, since you were man enough to apologize – I’ll do the same.

    I’m sorry for saying those mean things to – when I’m angry, I sometimes cross the line.

    Lets give this debate a fresh start. You start off by explaining why you believe the croc would win against a lion/tiger.

    Reply
  44. jake

    I think because the croc is bigger heavier is armored been around as a species longer and has stronger jaws I simply think a croc under 15 ft would lose to a tiger/lion but 16+ would win mostly in the water but 5/5 on land

    you keep what you thin I keep what I think and I think a cat would beat my overgrown lizard on land but in the water the overgrown lizard beats the cat

    Reply
    1. AP

      Here is my take on it:
      Size/Strength:
      The croc is much heavier, but it lacks the mobility, agility, speed, and reflexes to make use of it – crocs are faster than they are given for, but still slower than a big cat.
      Bite force:
      The croc has heavier pressure jaws – but they can’t kill with a swift bite – they need to do the death role. Tigers have the canines to penetrate through the tough hide of animals and kill with a single bite.

      On land, it could go either way, but I would give the edge to the tiger.

      In water, it could go either way, but I would give the edge to the croc.

      But again, I respect your opinion and I believe that we should not let our bias and favoritism get in the way of the scientific facts.

      Cheers dude.

        agility
        sure the croc is not as agile as the tiger
        but that is not really a factor given the croc has thick armored scales that can protect the crocs vital organs from even another crocs jaws
        bite force
        the crocs jaws can bite down with 5000-7700lbs of pressure while you tiger has 1050 lbs of bit e force

        in the water: 9,9/10 to the croc
        on land: 5,001/10 to the croc

          True – but the tiger always has the option of attacking the back of the neck (which is soft) and going for a skull bite.

          And like I said – the croc has heavier pressure jaws, but they can’t kill with a single bite – they need to do a death roll. The tiger’s jaws don’t produce as much pressure, but they are designed to kill with a single bite.

            you do make a valid point

            but the tiger would need an ambush cuz how will the agility help when the
            croc is constantly turning around facing the tiger.
            also a crocs skull is so dense it could survive a bite from another croc

          2. AP

            Jake,
            “but the tiger would need an ambush cuz how will the agility help when the
            croc is constantly turning around facing the tiger.”
            Again, this is what I have been trying to explain all along. Take the Machli vs 14 foot Mugger croc fight. Notice how the croc would turn around and constantly face Machli. Ask yourself, why was the croc able to do that? Because the croc was not very heavy. A ~1 ton nile/saltie does not have the neck mobility to keep turning around and facing the tiger – the croc will try to do this, but it will tire out and build lactic acid. This in turn, will allow the tiger to pick up the advantage, and go for the killer blow.

          3. AP

            “also a crocs skull is so dense it could survive a bite from another croc”

            The reason why crocs can survive bites from other crocs is because, like I explained earlier, their jaws are not meant to maim with a single bite.

            Thanks for agreeing on jaguar vs anaconda 🙂

          4. AP

            Jake,
            While we do have different opinions on who would emerge victorious, keep in mind that these types of fights usually depend upon the individual animals.

            Sometime a tiger might kill a croc in water, sometimes the croc might kill a tiger on land.

            Sometimes an anaconda will kill a jaguar, and vice versa.
