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.

@GrizzlyClaws :

About #1510: What do I see ? 265,5 grams for the 4 lion's fang ! I.e. an average weight of 66,375 g for each fang... It's very huge, I believed that male lion like sumatra and indochinese tigers averaged 55g /fang, the bengal tiger was over 60 gr and the Amour tiger could culminate above 70 g.

It was just a normal male lion.

I guess a really large male lion would have a single upper fang weighing over 100 grams.

The average Amur tiger upper fang mostly weighs about 70-80 grams.

@GrizzlyClaws :

About #1513: Yes, you're right, I was wrong. I reproduce what you said at #1391 (page 93): "The older they become, the heavier fangs they got."

Thus, from what you said too (#1390 and 1391), at parity of age, the Amour tiger's fangs can be the densest, it's all. At #1402, the weight of a liger's fangs reaches 250,6 gramms. But it's perhaps also biased by the fact the liger is always a captive animal... I don't know. Are the wild animals' fangs denser than the captive animals' ones ? It would be perhaps logical.

BTW, the liger being heavier than the lion, we could deduce this liger was jounger than the lion which we're speaking (whose the four fangs weigh 265,5 gramms) about.

The density of the canine is also associated with the length.

For a canine of 10 cm, the weight of 50 grams represents a solid one.

But for a canine of 12 cm, the weight of 50 grams must belong to a younger animal.
