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.

Tiger have more muscle than bear..so in same size tiger is more strong than brown/grizly bear? (Tiger memiliki otot yang kuat dari coklat beruang dalam ukuran yang sama?)

Edit: Sanjay
This thread has been renamed and the most discussion is around Chest girth of Carnivora

No, it is much harder than that. Different morphological forms and molecular muscular differences dominate here. I find that bears are stronger than tigers in most aspects (due to thicker back, neck, shoulders, arms, etc...), but tigers are stronger in regards to bite force and (probably) pulling strength since they have greater elasticity in their back (with weaker back muscles, but still) and equally flexible hip region.

In fact, muscle percentage is the smallest portion of what makes up the difference between big cats and bears. Muscle percentage starts to matter more if the animals are more similar in form.

@Polar: I can sum up by telling that bears are physically stronger, whereas tigers (and lions) are more armed to kill theirs preys (bite force, retractable claws, better suppleness and agility) ?

@Polar?? 

As far as i know Tigers' bite-force isn't stronger either, than that of Browns & Grizzlies.

Just as with cats, some bear species are pound-for-pound stronger than others. Polar bear and grizzly at the pinnacle.

Ohhhh... my apologies. It's not an absolute value... Their's is highest pound for pound. I overlooked it!

Anyways the values comes something like this...

Amongst the bears it's the Sun bears that have highest pound4pound bite-force!

I would lay claim that pound-for-pound, the grizzly. He often spends his days overturning logs and boulders. The shoulder hump is in evolutionary response to about one million years of digging and sometimes excavating huge cavernous holes in hard ground usually riddled with rocks and tough roots. That same shoulder hump reinforces the grizzly's upper-body strength. The grizzly has a shorter more robust neck with a larger broader skull. 
I have heard that the polar bear has larger arms; although I have neither read any data nor seen any comparisons as evidence of this. I believe that between the two biggest bears, it is a close contest. 
The bite-force issue, between the grizzly and the tiger has yet to be resolved on the site. However, my nickel would be on the tiger.
