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.

Excelent work Tigerluver, a correlation of 0.78 is very positive and actually shows that there is direct relation between total length and body weight in tigers. By the way, don't mix the Amur with the Bengals, they have different body mass and massiveness, at least in modern days.

I estimated the total length of the Ngandong tiger (femur of 480 mm) at 350 cm (233 cm head-body, between pegs of course), so I guess that this will produce a weight of up to 450 kg!

I think that this figure is still excessive, I believe that the Ngandong tiger probably weighed between 370-400 kg at best. Slightly less than Smilodon populator but also slightly more than Panthera atrox and the Cromerian lion.
