A tiger’s paws are powerful enough to smash the skulls of domestic cattle, and break the backs of sloth bears. With these claws, it’s no surprise that tiger can take down these large animals easily.
n the tiger subspecies, the Siberian tiger (also called Amur tiger) is considered the biggest. But, in the wild, some Bengal tigers have proven to be larger than any recorded Siberian tiger. According to the Guinness Book of World Records names the male Siberian tiger (Panthera tigris altaica) as the biggest cat in overall. They average 3.15 m (10 ft 4 in) in length from the nose to the tip of the extended tail, stands 99-107 cm (39 in-42 in) at the shoulder and weighs about 265 kg (580 lb). But the record-breaker is a Bengal tiger (P. t. tigris) shot in northern Uttar Pradesh, India in November 1967. It was measured 3.22 m (10 ft 6 in) between pegs (3.37 m or 11 ft 1 in over the curves) and weighed 389 kg (857 lb).
