Combatants

Rules

  • Both were fighting over the carcass but had enough of it
  • Both are hungry and going for the kill
  • Both are adults and fully grown
  • Bloodlusted
  • No outside interference

I know this has been done on other sites but why not bring it here. This is a controversial fight considering Leopard and Hyenas usually only fight over dead carcasses and try to make their mark on their kill instead of territory and more. Many say a Hyena wins. Many say a Leopard wins. Alot more say its a 50-50 and can go either way.

Who do you think would really win this fight?

These need to go in O-T or they'll get locked.

It's tough to say I think if the Leopard can't kill the Hyena quickly the Hyena will out endure him & I'm pretty sure a Hyena has a much stronger bite force & they're stubborn & crazy.

Meh I suppose 1on1 the Leopard should have an edge over a lone Hyena with it's claws & superior speed but it would wear out much quicker so he's gotta get that death blow in early.

Generally speaking, I’d favor a hunter/killer over a scavenger. Both will scavenge and kill, but a leopard’s primary source of food is from killing, and a hyena usually uses numbers to gimp.

Leopards are better fighters (cats in general usually are), but hyenas have the stronger bite force--around 1,000 psi IIRC. I'm going for the leopard because I'm biased.

If it's a male leopard vs a female hyena then my money is on the leopard.
