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 find it difficult to believe an adult lions claws are smaller than a jags and cheetahs and equal to a leopards.
Common sense would support that.

The largest big claw I've seen belongs to a male African lion, 7 cm in the straight line.

Bengal tiger, the unfragmented canine is about 158 mm, and the claw is close to 80 mm.

This claw is now the largest big cat claw I've seen.

That's interesting I thought the tigers claws were a little longer.

Yep, it looks like a large captive male, but too bad the big cats are overpopulated in the captivity of the US and China, and that's why their body parts were ended up selling to the taxidermists and ivory collectors.
