Powerful Facts About the Powerful Tiger

The lion may have its own Disney movie, while the tiger is usually seen as a villian, but there is little doubt as who is the most powerful cat in the world. The tiger outweighs the lion, is a stronger hunter, and has many incredible qualities that, in my eyes, make it the most remarkable of all big cats. Here are 22 facts that will prove my point!
1. Tigers have such powerful legs that even after death, they can sometimes remain standing!
