A long time ago a strange creature appeared in China and horrified and ate men and animals. The fast and fierce creature was called 'nien' (or 'nian'), which sounds like the Chinese word for 'year'. Neither the fox nor the tiger could fight the 'nien' effectively and in despair the people asked the lion for help.

As per Dr. Sunquist and many others listed above baiting is
the norm, the 3 Bengal tigers at 212kg it is reasonable to assume
gorging and baiting was involved as it was in the Sunderban case in this study.
Baiting gives a better opportunity in this multimillion dollar tourist

to cruise in a broken old replica Jeep with top down counting leaves
falling common sense crazyfist.

scientist have discovered that the stripes of the tiger made him looked BIGGER more MUSCULAR/TALLER than he really is...meanwhile the male lion's mane made him LLOOOK SHORTER AND less muscular

The lion does not have that luxury in the open savannah it has to chase its prey .except bush country South Africa where they developed patience in ambushing.
The zebra's stripes are much like your fingerprints, forming a
pattern unique to each zebra. Different species of zebras have similar
basic patterns. Grevy's zebras have the thinnest stripes, running to
their belly; mountain zebras have fewer vertical stripes, widening as
they reach the haunches; some plains zebras have brownish stripes
between their black stripes. The unique patterns may help zebras
identify each other but scientists have long thought the stripes help
zebras hide from predators, allowing them to blend in with the tall
grass surrounding them. The stripes also may serve as a distraction to
predators; zebras travel in large herds and scatter when threatened. The
blur of a group of moving stripes makes it difficult for a lion to pick
out an individual zebra from the pack. Most recently scientists have
learned those striped coats also serve as good insect repellent. The
black and white stripes disrupt light patterns horseflies and tsetse
flies use to find food and water."
Tigers stripes are also useful for camouflage. Tigers live in
grasslands and forests, and despite the color differences between their
fur and environment, their coats allow them to blend. They aren't hiding
from predators -- people are the only real threat to tigers -- but they
don't want their prey to see them. Most animals they need to hide from
don't distinguish color differences to the extent humans do, so tigers
can blend quite well into their surroundings. Like the zebra, no two
tigers have the same stripe pattern and the density and type of stripes
varies according to the species of tiger. Most tigers have more than 100
A tigers skin is actually stripped. This is not the case with zebra

What are lions? The largest cats in Africa, lions are about the same size as tigers. Modern lions descend from the extinct cave lion (Panthera atrox), which once ranged more widely than any mammalian species.
Whatever the origin of the lion dance, one thing is
certain: the lion that the Chinese knew was not the African lion, but
the Asiatic one. As it occurs in Chinese art and on the masks worn by
the lion dancers, it shows all the characteristics of the Asiatic lion:
a large tail tuft, a relatively small mane that leaves the ears clearly
visible, growths of hair extending to the joints of the forelegs and
along the belly, and a distinctive ventral skin fold. This is the lion
that one sees on the Ashokan pillar at Sarnath, our national emblem now,
and in sculptures of goddess Durga rides in in India.
It is of interest that the mythologies centering round
the lion from regions as distant and spread out as Greece, Anatolia,
West Asia and India are, somehow, inter-related even as they take
different forms in Judaic, Zoroastrian, Christian, Islamic, Hindu, Greek
and Buddhist arts. The words for 'lion' are again of interest. Leon
(Greek) by way of the Latin leo gives us the European distribution; simha
(Sanskrit) travels to South-East Asia to become singa (Indonesian)
and thus the lion of Singapore; and sh'ir, the original Persian
from which Hindi sher comes, becomes shizi in China, and shishi
