There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

This one is more than 3 cm longer than the replica from Bone Clone.

And the skull replica in the Bone Clone is about 38 cm, and this one could be at least on par with the magnitude of the 47 cm Panthera atrox skull replica.

The Cave lion canine teeth generally look very distinguishable from those of the Amur tiger.

@GrizzlyClaws :

About #609 and #610: I just come to notice this:

#609: african lion's fang weight: 55,9 gram
#610: Sumatra tiger's fangs weight: 78,6 gram both .i.e. 39,3 gram the weight of only one tiger's fang.

55,9 gram against 39,3 gram. Why is the difference so great ? The length difference is weak (11 cm for the lion, 10 cm as concerns the Sumatra tiger). The bottom of the lion's fang is narrower. The Sumatra tiger's fang is perhaps a little more curved. So what ? I cannot understand why the weight difference is so great.

Maybe the island tiger got proportionally lighter fangs, also more curved compared to their mainland cousins.

The densest Amur tiger fang at 10 cm is almost 70 grams, while a fully solid lion fang at 10 cm should get 50 grams as well.

@GrizzlyClaws :

About #625: I have never noticed how the difference between the subspecies of the tigers could be so great: 70 grams against 39 almost, .i.e. twice as many (+ 80% in fact) ! An average lion seems, with 55 grams, to have an intermediate weight between these two extremes. But clearly, the tiger tops the list.

Till now, I confess I payed attention essentially to the length of the fangs. Error !

Here is a Amur tiger lower fang, 10.3 cm long and 3.2 cm wide, it looks damaged and worn, but still weighing at 67 grams.

Definitely one of the densest big cat fangs in my list.
