A typical male Bengal tiger can grow between 460-500 pounds, 3.1-3.5 feet tall at the shoulder on all fours, and is around 9 feet in length from head to tail. When it comes to weapons, tigers have strong forelimbs that allow them to have a powerful grip force when hunting prey. They have large paws equipped with extremely sharp claws which are meant to grasp onto and rip through their prey’s skin. Bengal tigers have a powerful bite force which comes to 1050 PSI. This helps the tiger’s long k9 teeth that can grow up to 3 inches in length bring down its opponent through the suffocation method of biting its prey’s neck. When it comes to defense, Bengal tigers have dense muscles, decently thick fur, and a stocky body. The fur is relatively susceptible to sharp objects, especially over a drawn-out fight. As for speed, tigers are said to run up to 40 mph in short bursts and would be more agile on land, but slower in water compared to the crocodile. Also, since the tiger is a warm-blooded mammalian carnivore, it would have more stamina compared to the crocodile. When it comes to fighting experience, tigers face off with other members of their own species and take down large ungulates, boar, and deer by themselves. On occasion, when tigers go near large bodies of water, they encounter the mugger crocodile, which is smaller than the Nile crocodile.

A typical male Nile crocodile can grow between 12-16 feet in length and weighs between 500-1000 pounds with the average likely being around 600 pounds. So, the Nile crocodile would have the length and weight advantage, but the tiger would have the height advantage. When it comes to weapons, the Nile crocodile has a huge, elongated skull, that is significantly larger than the tiger’s skull. It’s filled with sharp, conical teeth that are used to grab and latch onto its prey. The Nile crocodile’s bite force is one of the strongest out of any living animal, which comes to around 3700 PSI. That’s 3.5 times stronger than the Bengal tiger’s bite force. The Nile crocodile uses its immense bite strength to grasp onto its prey and drag it underwater. Their large skulls and physiology allow it to do the death roll, which further injures its opponent by rotating its body after it grabs onto its opponent. The Nile crocodile has thick scales and bone plating along its back which provides really good protection against sharp objects and has a weight advantage. As for speed, Nile crocodiles can run up to 8 mph on land, which is significantly less than the tiger, but in water, they can swim a lot faster. Crocodiles are built for explosive power, such as leaping and bite down onto their prey while doing the death roll. Nile crocodiles actively hunt wildebeest, zebras, and buffalo. They also face off with other crocodiles, lions, and hippos.
