"In conclusion, megalodon and liopleurodon are both smaller than the mighty Sperm Whale." Yeah I heard the same. How about my reserve choice of BASILOSAURUS!?

Sperm Whale weighs more than any of them. It also has the largest brain of all times

I'm not reading this whole thread, but how could food be ranked higher than the one eating it? Would a moose kick a tiger's ass? A lion? Wtf is that?

Nothing really "eats" kodiak bears, hippos, rhinos or elephants in the sense that it routinely hunts down adults and whoops their ass.

I saw a special the other day about some lion packs who specialized in hunting elephants! It was crazy, but then we're not talking one-on-one, adult bull etc of course. I was more worried about the sanity of about putting moose over tiger, though.

"I was more worried about the sanity of about putting moose over tiger, though." Jwixard has since changed his ranking and has the Tiger over the Moose. The moose is regular kill for tigers in siberia. This is documented.

OK. The sanity issue is laid to rest then. (In 300+ threads I sometimes skip a post or two, I'm ashamed to admit.)

Apparently leopards don't fare so well. JERUSALEM -- A man clad only in underwear and a T-shirt wrestled a wild leopard to the floor and pinned it for 20 minutes after the cat leapt through a window of his home and hopped into bed with his sleeping family. In any case I think this should lay to rest the how would a blue belt in BJJ do against a leopard. I'm assuming that he wasn't ranked any higher since he was apparently happy to play for points as opposed to finishing the leopard. Or then again maybe leopards have trouble tapping out with paws??? http://www.foxnews.com/wires/2007May28/0,4670,IsraelCatCall,00.html

that was an old leopard. Usually leopards that are close to humans are too old/sick to hunt regular prey.

On the contrary, only the strongest/most dangerous cats choose to live in close proximity to humans. Lookup the Champawat tigress and the lions of Tsavo which killed over 400 and 140 people respectively. The guy is lucky he knows how to take the back, although I'm not sure how he got his rear hooks in since the knees on cats are so much closer to their hips.

Well you would think with all of the time that feline cubs spend rolling with each other they would have learned some escapes, especially since they have claws and the guy was only in his underwear.

" Well you would think with all of the time that feline cubs spend rolling with each other they would have learned some escapes, especially since they have claws and the guy was only in his underwear." They said in the news article that the leopard was old and weak and couldn't get food in the wild.

"Shapira said the leopard was very weak when park rangers arrived at Du Mosch's home after the surprise late-night visit." yes, but when they arrived. It had been pinned for at least 20 minutesw before hand. I assumed that the man had the back, but who knows, maybe he had it pinned with knee on stomach or a cross side mount. Either way after 20 minutes even anyone including an in shape leopard or even tiger would probably be exhausted. Unless of course it had been in training specifically for this.

A great book about top apex predators and the people who live and lived along side them is Monster of God by David Quammen. He also wrote a book called Song of the Dodo, about biogeography, preservation and extincion of species. Both are fantastc reads

"yah i've heard the man eating tigers in India, very intelligent" And very manly it seems, considering his diet.
