Lions are also considered to be one of the fastest running animals on land, but the world's largest lion, the Cape lion, is generally considered to be extinct in 1865, mainly because there were many local hunters and farmers in South Africa in the past who liked the lion's fur to keep warm and keep warm, and they could exchange a lot of money, so they could often hunt and kill lions. In addition, some farmers resented that the Cape lion was often caught Kill their livestock, so the hunters kill a lot of Cape lions.

About the king of beasts, it's always unclear. Both the lion and the tiger are known as the king of beasts. Which one is more powerful? So many people compare the world's largest lion with the northeast tiger. In fact, ancient Indians, Persians and Mesopotamians may have seen the fighting between lions and tigers in the wild, but there is no record. There is no record of lion and tiger fighting, and the outcome is even more unknown.

However, those who have observed the movements of lions and tigers will notice that even the largest lion in the world has a stiff back and body, while the tiger's body is more elastic.

In the circus, tigers are often trained to walk the balance beam, but there is no hope of success in lion training. This seems to be contrary to common sense and unbelievable. However, this is an ironclad fact, which can not be denied by anyone with a clear mind. Almost all people (including those who think that lions have more interests than tigers) have a consensus that tigers' body structure endows them with more and stronger muscles, are much bigger than lions, and their predation ability is much stronger than lions.
