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.

I know they say clouded leopard canines are the same length as tigers, do you know of any that truly reach the same length that you have seen?
These above certainly do not to my eye.

The Clouded leopard has proportionally the longest fangs of all felines, while the tiger fangs are unmatched in the absolute size and density.

A tiger fang would be 3-4 times heavier than a Clouded leopard fang with the similar length.

Those P. spelaea dentitions are from Dawkins (the book I've mentioned a lot when discussing Koenigswald). They're from the UK. Here's the book again if anyone would like to browse further:

Yep, that's why these fangs are no larger than that of the modern lions.

According to Alex from zoologist.ru, the largest fang recorded for Panthera spelaea should be over 17 cm around the curve, which means it is similar to this liger tooth.
