What would win a fight between a tiger and a hippo

Post by Duke » Thu May 14, 2015 10:41 pm

Both are fully grown males in a neutral environment.

People talk about how dangerous hippos are but this is a no brainer for me. Tigers are killing machines and regularly take down massive (hippo sized) prey, single handedly (unlike lions for instance), whereas hippos lie around eating f***ing grass and whatever all day.

I can't think of anything that could beat a tiger in fact except an elephant due to sheer size alone.

Hippos lie around in the mud and water.

And you're right, they eat a f*** load of grass, you know what that means? That means they maul other animals and human beings strictly for fun, that's how unpredictable these bastards are.

1 hippo takes out an entire pack of tigers, easily. <ok>

You can't even find video of tigers attempting to attack a hippo because tigers aren't stupid enough to even attempt it!

Depends how stupid the tiger is; if it goes for the throat the hippo's going to rip it apart, if it takes it from behind it's not going to be in danger but it's not going to be able to inflict meaningful damage. I'll go for the hippo.

A tiger would tear a hippo a new one.

However, Putin would kick the tigers ass

How is the tiger going to open it's mouth wide enough to get around a hippo's throat?

Why the f*** would it need to get it's mouth around the hippo's entire throat? A tiger could easily maul and bite a hippo to death.

I feel like people are voting for the hippo because it has a bigger mouth <erm>.
