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.

@epaiva 

So the skull is 48 cm for the American lion and 39 cm for the Siberian tiger?

I think your given measurements are correct.

-   African Lion 36 cm long and  24,4 cm wide, 
-   American Lion did not measure 48 centimeters long, it measures 47 cm long and 29,5 cm wide.

@epaiva

Maybe @tigerluver can also help us how to correctly assess the length given by the caliper.

Is this measurement 7.1 cm or 7.5 cm?

From the upper inner part of the mouth to the lower it's 7.5 cm. When using the mouth of the caliper you use the the measurement where the sliding part's 0 rests. You do this because if you notice, the top half of the mouth of the caliper is touching the object a few millimeters before the stationary part's 0.

Usually the electronic caliper would be handier to see the measurement.

@epaiva BTW, can you re-measure the skull length by correctly counting where the part ending at zero?
