Tiger And Bear’s Extraordinary 15-Minute Brawl Caught On Camera At A Nature Park In India

Who came out as the winner?

A tiger and a bear engaging in a fight is something that we don’t see every day. But on Wednesday, naturalist Akshay Kumar managed to film the rare moment when the predator and an insectivore clashed.

The violent brawl happened at the Tadoba National Park in India’s Western Maharashtra state and involved a female sloth bear and a male tiger.

While leading a tourist safari, Kumar and the group spotted the two animals battling it out.

Witnesses said the fight was started by the tiger.

Kumar told the Associated Press that the tiger was drinking from a waterhole when the sloth bear arrived at the spot with her cub. But the male tiger, named Matkasur, believed that his territory has just been invaded and so resorted to defending it.

Matkasur was even seen locking the mother sloth bear on the neck with its teeth.

Based on the footage released, the tiger had the upper hand, repeatedly locking the bear down with its jaw. But somehow, it wasn’t enough to put down the fierce mother sloth bear.

She fought back harder not only to save herself but also her cub. Dr Anish Andheria, President of Wildlife Conservation Trust, said that the tiger had a difficulty taking down the sloth bear and having a tight grip on her because she has long fur.

“As you can see in the video, the sloth bear was so exhausted. They can’t outrun tigers. The only thing that saves the bear is the hair on the body, because tiger doesn’t get a grip.”

Sloth bears don't usually prey on other animals as their diet mostly consists of insects.

Kumar believes that the only reason the mother sloth bear fought back was that she’s protecting her young. Kumar described the rare moment as a “severe” fight between the two. The battle lasted for almost 15 minutes, with both animals suffering from injuries.

Sex Pest Tortoise Single-Handedly Saves His Entire Species From Mass Extinction

This guy here is definitely a lady’s man.

They say in this life you got to do something that would make you proud. That when you look back on your life, you can open a beer, smile, and say: “I did it.” This is exactly what Diego the Tortoise did, except that this action was somewhat legendary.

Why? That is because his species would not be here if not for him. The centenarian was responsible for a very important job in the past, as he was among the remaining males of his species (there were 3 of them) called the Española tortoise. They can be found on the Galapagos Island where their population seemed low, putting themselves in near extinction.
