Kingfisher and Umarpani

A little blurry but kingfisher was taller, larger chest girth and longer.
I'd use the 200kg-220kg mark for Umarpani, he's no slouch of a tiger himself.



The mighty Bheem and Jobhi

Jobhi was said to be larger than Bamera (RIP) so may be use the 200kg-220kg mark again

From the the frame, he's 1.15x thicker at the chest. I'd adjust it to 1.2x for distance. With adjustments and looking at body length without head, he is not much longer than her, maybe 1.07x. Length estimate is 160 kg and chest diameter estimate is 224 kg, averaging 192 kg. However, I think the female is longer than average (thus over 130 kg), I doubt BMW would be anywhere near 160 kg as the length estimate predicts.

They are too far apart, but the male in the back for the worth of the frame is barely smaller. Meaning, he is likely significantly larger than the male closer to the camera.

Male in the bear is 1.022x longer for what is on the frame. We could adjust it to 1.04x perhaps for distance. Looks to be 1.04x thicker (in the other photo) and we can adjust that to 1.06x. Length estimate for the back male is then 225 kg and chest estimate is 238 kg, averaging 232 kg. This is assuming the foreground male is 200 kg.

Bear:

I only messed with chest diameter. From the frame, he is actually smaller than her but that is obviously due to how far away he is. This is a very hard to picture to measure from. All I can say is that from the distance he away from the camera, he is still matching the chest diameter of the female in front, as is probably 1.2-1.3x their thickness, so 400-500 kg based on a 227 kg female.

Thank you for taking the time tigerluver. I know that the picture is not right for this. 400 kg ( 882 pounds ) to 500 kg ( 1100 pounds ) is a big bear.   Like

I have a new one for you @tigerluver and this has a bit of controversy attached.
This image is of T12 and T17 (sister of t18)
T12 was claimed to be 170kg and T18 was claimed to be 170kg so unless she was 40+kg less than her sister, the sariska tiger weights are very questionable.

Lets just use the 130kg mark for her which is probably low for a daughter of Machli but I still think even using that mark you will probably get a 190-210kg mark for T12

With no perspective and distance corrections, the back tiger is 1.24x thicker at the chest and 1.085x. So even with the appearing smaller than he actually is due his distance from the camera, the chest estimate is 248 kg and the length estimate is 166 kg, averaging 207 kg (all calculations assuming a 130 kg female). Remember, 207 kg is without any buffing for his further distance.

Great Job tigerluver, I guess it's safe to assume the 170kg mark quoted for him is misinformation like so many stated.
But I am curious as to who weighed him over the other 4, since only one was weighed by Sebastian and the other 4 were weighed by Sinha, if he was the only one weighed by Sebastian that may explain it but if he was weighed by Sinha who weighed 4/5 and obviously knows how to use a scale, that may be a bit more of a mystery.

If that is a mating pair, the male Amur tiger looks gigantic!

Jai with his female mating, the tigress is around 3 years elder than Jai.
Ive never ever seen a male bengal dwarfing a female like this.
Is it possible to use this video to gauge his weight.

Hello guys. @peter and @tigerluver, I will like to post something about the length of Amur tigers by the S.T.P.

Edit: At suggestion of @tigerluver, I changed the post to this other topic.

Greetings to all.
