Fight Between Siberian Tiger and Polar Bear
The polar bear and Siberian tigers similarly live in the same climate. The polar bear lives in the Arctic Area with lots of snow with the temperature range of 50 degrees and the Siberian tiger also lives in the Russian Far East where it is freezing with lots of snow in the temperature range of 48 degrees. But the polar bear is more than twice the tiger’s size, and of course, the tiger is faster and agiler but think about it.
This is a fair fight so the tiger can’t use ambush. So the polar bear could not catch the tiger as soon as because it’s agile, so it had to wait for the tiger to attract. The two animals are facing directly at each other of the tiger attacked head on it would fall right into the polar bear’s big paws and obtain its spine smashed.
The tiger’s only attack method then is to maneuver around the polar bear and jump on its back where it can’t reach over and grab it and kill the polar bear with a bite to the spinal column. So the tiger might have more of a chance of killing the bear.
