  Where is the biggest bengal tigers?
Posted by: Pantherinae - 03-24-2017, 08:18 PM - Forum: Debate and Discussion about Wild Animals - Replies (29)
for long I have wondered where do you the biggest bengal tigers? Assam, terrai, Central India, Ranthambore etc? 
I'm not going to hide that I love South India's Tigers! And that they can reach massive sizes, but I would still say that they can't reach the absolute monstrous sizes of the others mentioned above. 

I know the popular belief that the North Indian and Nepalese tigers are the biggest, but I'm not sure I agree.. they for sure look to have a larger skulls (at least longer) and a more impressive upper-body with arms that are just mind blowing, but I'm I crazy if I say that the Central Indian looks just as big, If not bigger? They to me looks just as impressive in their upper body and their hind quarters looks even more robust. Especially Kanha and Pench seem to have males that match up well to the Terrai and Assam males.

My opinion: I think the biggest Nepalese, Central and Northern Indian males would max out very evenly.. and can all have super specimen that can reach weights over 300 kg.

but I really want a discussion about this to learn and listen to people's view and opinion's about who they think possesses the biggest cat in the world.

  Animal compared to animal
Posted by: Pantherinae - 03-23-2017, 07:12 AM - Forum: Questions - Replies (2)
Hey everyone I remember @peter  was talking about starting a thread about comapring tigers and lions, or other animals for that matter.. I think it's a great Idea and it would makes us all talk and learn more about the animals, but we would need to be very sticky on individuals who overstep the line 

But I just wonderd about how everybody feels about it not to mention the mods and that we'll make a decision on the matter  together and see what we can find out :) 

Also instead of AvA I personally feels Animals compared to animals would be greater, but that's just my opinion

  In what groups we can divide the Bengal Tiger?
Posted by: Ngala - 03-21-2017, 11:37 PM - Forum: Questions - Replies (11)
Hi to all, members and reader.

My question is: 

In what groups we can divide the Bengal Tigers (Panthera tigris tigris) based on the different regions, and based on the morphological differences?

For example, it's clear that the tigers from the Terai Arc are different from the tigers from Sundarbans.

We thought to reorder some sections, for avoid the fragmentation of information. I would ask if you have any suggestions; all information is good.

The giant anteater measures 182–217 cm (5.97–7.12 ft) in length, with weights of 33–41 kg (73–90 lb) for males and 27–39 kg (60–86 lb) for females. It is recognizable by its elongated snout, bushy tail, long fore claws, and distinctively colored pelage. they are  very common animals in the Venezuelan Llanos, normally you will find them at the end of the day and at nigh. They have very powerful claws, they can defend themselves very well.

Research on Size of Payara Huge fangs: a few years ago I was really curious to see the real size of Payaras big teeth after reading in the web and in books that their huge teeth grow up to 6 

inches long (15 cm) it really looked like too large for me so I went to different Museums in Caracas, Venezuela and found information from Fishermen and from one of the Best Expert filming 

wild fresh water fishes in South America my Friend  Ivan Mikolji and found out that the truth is very far from what I saw before, Mr Frank Magallanes who was the owner of  

opefe.com a website that especializes in Piranhas and other predatory fishes told me that it was ok for him to publish it in his website. Hope you like the article and the pictures.

  Scientists are changing their minds about how the Earth’s water got here
Posted by: Bronco - 03-10-2017, 12:35 PM - Forum: Miscellaneous - Replies (1)
Geoscientists continue to debate two competing theories. One suggests that Earth’s water might have been captured from asteroids and comets that collided with the planet. But recent research has strengthened the case for the other theory that water was always present in the rocks of the Earth’s mantle and was gradually released to the surface through volcanoes.

  This Device Pulls Clean Drinking Water Out of Thin Air

Using a system that uses a set of plastic 'leaves' to funnel air in various directions, the team has developed water generators that appear to create pure drinking water out of nothing.
