The bear is a much bigger target, and more likely to get hit first and the gorilla would probably shatter whatever bone it came in contact with when striking.

Also a gorilla would never have to change stance, a bear would have to fight on all fours taking away a lot of size advantage, its not like it can shimmy about on 2 legs like a well trained boxer. This would make it a lot slower in what is a close quarters fight, it may be fast but it will take a while to get up to speed, due to Its size it will have slow acceleration speed and turning speed, the gorilla will easily flank it and go primal shattering rib cage limbs ect disadvantaging the bear more with every strike.
Good post. They aren't just stronger pound for pound though <roll>.

Who said bears are aggressive?

Can't help thinking this question is because of Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, in which (not really a spoiler since in first 10 mins of film)

1v1 the bear fucks the ape up, it takes a sneaky 3rd ape to kill it

But then again Gorillas aren't that aggressive either. I remember this incident at Jersey Wildlife Trust when I was a kid. Jambo <awe>

I had a very disconcerting dream last night that the gorilla won eventually and the proceeded to hump the bear carcass whilst roaring in victory and beating its chest.

I woke up to an amazing display of lightning and thunder.

In that picture the bear just smacks the gorilla on the top of the head and then body slams it for the back breaking win, guaranteed.

How about we throw in a stacked Red Kangaroo for a triple threat match?

I brought this up with my house last night, it got pretty heated and I'm pretty sure everyone hates each other now.

Bear obviously. There'll have probably been just one loser desperately trying to convince himself that the gorilla might win (there always is).

There's only one way to settle this.


How much do gorillas usually cost?
I dunno
