So who do you think would win between a similar sized raptor/dromaeosauride and a big cat? If for example a 1000 pound utah raptor fought a 1000 pound american lion, who would win? Tiger, lions, and other big cats/ cats in general are known for being one of the best hunters in the animal kingdom.....but raptors are also known for being some of the most deadliest hunters during their era. Big cats do have sharp claws and teeth, but the raptor possesses sharp talons/claws and a powerful bite of its own. What do you think would happen in such a battle?
