Bear vs lion – Who would win?
Here’s a nice easy question for you all – who would win the fight lion vs bear?
Some of you may say a bear because of its brute force and aggression. Others might say a lion because of its guile, stealth and natural born killer instinct.
This article explores the strengths of these beautiful mammals and asks who really wins between bear and lion.
The Wonderful Wild
There’s nothing better than watching a wildlife show to see what our intellectually superior cousins from the African animal kingdom are up to.
And when thinking about wildlife a series of hypothetical questions come to mind. Could a giraffe survive in a European forest? What would happen if elephants occupied the Amazon?
Who would win – brown grizzly bear vs lion? Or Kalahari lion vs black bear? These animals evolved and exist in polar opposite habitats, so the possibility of these two species ever having an altercation is not high. But that doesn’t mean we can’t predict and propose who would win such a colossal confrontation.
Lion vs Bear – The Battle Begins
The time for talk is done, the hype is over and it’s time to find out who is the most dangerous giant animal of them all.
The lion’s pride can be seen ringside, chewing on springbok steaks and looking apprehensive.
The bear’s family are sitting opposite, growling with anticipation and hoping for the best.
The bear is the first one to enter the ring, a no-nonsense competitor who slowly and solemnly strolls through the watching crowds, looking icily calm yet menacing.
His entrance music is some loud thrash metal record which contrasts eerily with his composed persona.
Next, comes the lion, probably not bursting out to the Guns N’ Roses tune Welcome to the Jungle, and probably not entering the ring to a song from The Lion King (too cliche!).
He growls and snarls his way to the ring, bouncing from foot to foot, psyching himself up for the task ahead.
Get it on
Just before the bell rings, the two animals are brought to the centre of the ring by the referee who is, of course, a rhino, because a rhino is the only animal with any chance of controlling these two giants.
Dwarfed by his big brown opponent, the lion shows his fangs and lets out a great roar as a warning to stay well back.
The bear adopts a different approach, distractedly peering over the head of the lion to feign a lack of interest, and to further illustrate the gulf in size.
Seconds out, ding, ding. Time to see who is the true, undisputed champion of the animal kingdom!
Let’s get it on…
Who would win a fight between a lion and a bear?
Oh wait, you wanted an answer as to who would win a fight between a lion and a bear?
Of course, it’s all hypothetical. Nobody knows and nobody should ever know the answer to this. These animals will never actually meet in the wild. And all the bears and lions of the world should be given the freedom to live in the wild.
We’re not advocating a sick zoo-based battle between these majestic creatures. Lions and bears should never be kept captive, not even in zoos.
So who would win lion vs bear? Let’s keep that as one of nature’s mysteries.
