The Cat vs The Ape
    #3660768 - 01/21/05 10:27 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

The animal-human relations thread in OTD sparked a thought for discussion..
So, on the subject of Animalism..

Question:
An 600+ pound huge Siberian tiger in his prime, with an extremely vicious temperament and deadly claws that would tear your face off in no time...

Pitted in a cage-match against..

An African Silver-back male adult Gorilla, with arms bigger than your thighs, packed with bone-crushing power and opposable thumbs..

What would be the results in your own mental-movie of this animalistic violent movie?





vs




I cannot think of a better animal-match than this, truly. It would be a very, very, close fight, methinks.

Tiger would tear shit up, hands down.
Though I'd vouch for the ape against lesser felines.

The tiger has way more pointy things. IE: claws and teeth (and cunning)

He will win and there will be bloodshed.

Assault weapons are legal now.........this is warning to all hunters; watch out for Peta members in tree stands with AK-47s and Tech-9s.

What's the setting? If they really are caged in then I'd have to say the gorilla because the Tiger loses a lot of its agility factor. The gorilla would just toss that bitch into the bars...

But....If it's in the open then it's anybodies match, the Tiger could run circles around the gorilla, use some Muhammed Ali tactics...Tire that fat ass out then slash him in his face blinding him. But, if the gorilla somehow manages to pound the tiger a few times, then he's gonna be hurting pretty bad considering how EXTREMELY FUCKING STRONG those gorillas are. I would have to say you created a VERY good match. I'm putting my money on the gorilla though just because he can swat the tiger with his godly strength.

Lemme now if played down the tiger to much...

I don't think you took the size of the tiger fully into account. They are huge.

I also thought the gorilla. The tiger's quick and sharp, but the gorilla is one strong fucker. He could smash his arms full speed onto the tiger and knock him out, maybe breaking his neck. If the tiger leaped at him he could grab the thing and toss it. The tiger may take a chunk out of the gorilla, but I think the gorilla could win by sheer strength, not to mention he has two long arms compared to the tiger's one mouth and claws

They actually have a show called Animal Face-Off on Discovery. This is what I concluded by reading this site http://www.tvtome.com/tvtome/servlet/EpisodeGuideSummary/showid-26169/

I've never seen a Tiger but I have seen a Lion, and according to the show a lion would pwn a tiger. I've seen a silverback in the zoo as well and they are about the same size as a lion if not bigger. On the show, the tiger would be defeated by a grizzly, so I think a silverback could do it for sure. They are so fucking strong, and are like 5 foot while on all 4, then he'll stand up and fucking tear the hell out of that tiger.

Edit: Oh yea, the gorilla tore up the Jaguar. Jaguars are pretty big too.

Well, a jaguar is hardly a siberian tiger.

The Gorilla has massive strength.. So does the Tiger. The tiger could knock you out with a solid swipe of his paw.
Just one hook of his paw with all of his claws into the Gorilla's face.. Bye-bye eyes.
If the Gorilla overpowers the Tiger, what would most likely happen is the Tiger would assume the defensive position, laying on his back while kicking with his hind legs and clawing away at the Gorilla's head/body in a furious frenzy.
The Gorilla can only take so much of that, and would most likely instinctively back-off away from all the severe cuts and lacerations.

If it were Gorilla vs Gorilla, then hell, he could take a lot of pounding and punches and body slams. But having your jugular or face or abdomen shredded, cut and sliced up by a 600 pd Tiger with phenomenal, immense strength, is another story.

I've seen, on Discovery, Jaguars pull up dead weight of antelope carcass onto a tree with his bare teeth. Imagine what a Siberian Tiger, the largest Feline in the world, can do.

Jaguar = 200-300 lbs
Siberian Tiger = 500-700lbs

I'm starting to think it would all depend on the individual skills of the particular gorilla and tiger. Which one spent more time at the Dojo if you get my drift.

I vote for the tiger, although you're right, in the cage the gorilla might have the edge.

what about tag team?

Tiger + Batman vs Gorilla + Spiderman

That's not even applicable to the reasoning, the difference could not possibly be that much unless the gorilla was a fucking baby.
