  Lions and tigers coexistence in Persia (Iran)
Posted by: Wolverine - 05-18-2019, 02:39 AM - Forum: Wild Cats - Replies (6)
We know that tigers and lions have been a neighbours and coexisted for thousands of years in India. But there is one other vast country in Asia where these two mega-predators also coexisted - Iran, called historically "Persia". Maps of distribution of Persian lions are quite general and a bit fogy, but here is a map of the distribution of Caspian tiger:

As we can see the range of Caspian tiger included primary the northern part of Iran, more specially wet woody slopes of Alborz mountain elevated to more than 5000 m and covered by lush oak forests. Other parts of the Iran are much drier and covered by steppes, semi-deserts and should had been a primary habitat of the Persian lion. Somewhere in the north, probably on the general latitude of Teheran these two mega-cats should have met each other. Below is a rock barelef from 19th century Qajar dynasty near Teheran depicting the king hunting lion:

So, Persian lion and Caspian tiger were neighbours in Iran, and probably in the areas with mixed vegetation they somehow coexisted.

@BorneanTiger , @Sanju do you have a precise detailed map of the former range of Asiatic lion in Iran in order to compare it with the map of the Caspian tiger? The maps I saw in internet are quite general and probably not very correct. By the way in this scientific article you can find a wonderful photos of skins of Caspian tigers in Teheran Natural museum and a info about a Caspian in the Moscow zoo you asked me last year:

To start off with, the Caucasian or Persian leopard (Panthera pardus tulliana as per the 2017 revision of subspecies of the Cat Specialist Group, Pages 73–75: https://repository.si.edu/bitstream/hand...sAllowed=y, synonymsPanthera pardus ciscaucasia and Panthera pardus saxicolor) is present in Ciscaucasia or North Caucasus, which is in European Russia, meaning that there are leopards in Europe! http://www.catsg.org/fileadmin/fileshari...ucasus.pdfhttp://assets.panda.org/downloads/caucas...tegy_1.pdf

  Amphimachairodus giganteus
Posted by: smedz - 05-11-2019, 06:02 PM - Forum: Pleistocene Big Cats - No Replies
Post whatever information is available on this big cat. We can answer questions like.... 

1. What was on the menu? 

2. What were it's rivals? 

3. Was it social? 

4. Was there any sexual dimorphism? (if social, this can give an insight as to how the social structure probably worked) 

5. What was the estimated weight? 

I'll answer 3., they did coexist with Adcrocuta  hyenas, which likely lived in clans, so a social system would have been helpful in defending kills, territory, cubs, and mates.

  Feral and Invasive Tigers of Texas and Florida

Feral and Invasive Tigers of Texas and Florida

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. Is this legit, or is it a hoax. Lots of pigs and deer to feed a tiger in this area..... I wouldn't be surprised, based on how many of these exotics exist on private land and ranches in Texas. A was only a matter of time before one got, or was set, loose. Maybe along with the Deer and pigs or feral hogs the Tiger could also eat the drug dealers in the area.

The whole 'more tigers in Texas than in the wild' is a game of telephone with data over a decade out of date. It’d be great if we could get some “American Tigers”, aka the Jaguar, hanging back around the Rip Grande. Wanhsien/Amur Tiger remains have been found across Beringia.

  Tigers have good endurance?
Posted by: smedz - 05-02-2019, 04:34 AM - Forum: Questions - Replies (45)
I was watching an episode from Animalogic on tigers, and the host says that unlike other cats, tigers have pretty good endurance which allows them to chase prey longer than other cats. I always thought tigers had terrible endurance. Is what this person says true?

Male Tiger Mates With 2 Females at a Time

This is an unusual and rare incident that took place in Tadoba National Park, India. As reported by The Bamboo Forest Safari Lodge:

Recently, a rare natural history moment was recorded in the park by one of our lodge naturalists.

It is a dream for everyone to witness special behaviours of the tigers in the wild. Similarly, our guests were delighted to see a pair of tigers mating during one of their safaris at Alizanza zone. To their luck, they actually saw something very rare and surprising.

‘We saw a male tiger lying on the ground on a hot afternoon, he was calm and relaxed. He got up and stood the ground when our guide saw a tigress raising her head in the stream bed glancing at the male. She immediately got into the mating position and the male tiger mounted on her. They heard a loud roar as they ended their mating.

The female lied down on her back, like typically cats do; and the male sat down next to her. Within next few minutes, another female appears from the thickets and offered him the mating position. The male took an opportunity to mate with her too. Once the mating finishes with the second female, the male sits as a barrier in between the two females to avoid conflicts between them.

We have heard about tigers mating for days together but, to see two females mate with one male at the same time was something rare!’, says Arjun M Bharadwaj  Naturalist at The Bamboo Forest Safari Lodge.
