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.

While adult Wild Boar are formidable in their own right, Leopards have been documented to kill them in some parts of Asia:

1) Although most were juveniles, an adult wild boar was part of the Leopard's diet in Iran:

2) The Sri Lankan Source I posted before mentioned that while there were 3 Sambar Stag killed by the Leopard, there was one adult wild boar killed by a Leopard:

3) A Leopard killed an adult male wild boar in India:

Edit: I got this from a different forum, but it was to show that a Leopard can kill an adult wild boar.

Hello Sanju!
For wild boars, not artificially fed by the hunters, the record weight is around 350 kilos. Such huge monsters were taken in Carpathian Mountains and Ussuri region too.

Actually, the first wild boar is not from Turkey at all, but from Romania. I know the picture, is from an old romanian hunting magazine.

Actually, the first wild boar is not from Turkey at all, but from Romania. I know the picture, is from an old romanian hunting magazine.

The first photograph, as far as I know, was first posted by Warsaw (now posting at Carnivora) some years ago. He said the photograph was taken in Turkey. I took his word for it. but he could have been mistaken.

I know people who were born and raised in the eastern part of Turkey. Some of them still hunt every now and then. They told me eastern Turkey has some wild regions and large wild boars. At the level of averages the Ussuri wild boar is the largest, but wild boars in the southwestern part of central Asia can also grow to a large size.

When you say wild boar, you say tiger. The Caspian tiger (Panthera tigris virgata), now extinct, was more or less common in eastern Turkey not so long ago. The people I know tell me they still hear rumours about tigers in eastern Turkey. Same for Afghanistan and a few other regions.

The measurements I have suggest Caspian tigers in the southwestern part of their former range could have been a bit larger than those living in the northeastern part. According to the people I talked to, wild boars topped the list of tigers in Turkey.
