Gorilla Experience in the wild

gorillas are generally peaceful animals, They can be very aggressive when push comes to shove, But a gorilla isn’t a killing machine like the tiger.

Silverback Gorillas have been known to bench 10 TIMES their weight. They weigh around 400 lbs, so their bench is around 2 TONS.

While, the gorilla feeds on vegetables, the tiger feeds on flesh of it’s killed victim. Siberian tiger vs silverback gorilla fight to the death

Leopards have killed Silverback Gorillas in the wild, Their tactics of killing is by sneaking up and biting the neck of the silverback.

If a leopard can kill Silverbacks, a Siberian Tiger which is more stronger and deadly would definitely kill it too

Not so much for a Bengal tiger (which is 20% smaller than a Siberian tiger)

Contrary to popular belief, gorillas are not extremely territorial animals that crush everything that crosses their path. Gorillas are territorial animals, but as long as you don’t provoke them, they won’t attack you. Gorillas are much more peaceful when compared to chimpanzees and baboons.

The tiger’s biggest advantage would be
  • It’s ability to sneak up on prey
  • Sharp and powerful claws
  • The killer instinct and tactics
  • Powerful bite force designed to break bones.

A Siberian tiger would lacerate the gorilla skin easily with it’s sharp claws

Siberian tigers go for the neck while attacking?

Tigers and lions, and the other large cats, go for the necks or soft underbellies.… You won’t escape a jaguar if it wants to kill you, because a jaguar aims for the skull, having a bite force of (1,350 psi) more powerful to other feline.

  • Jaguar bite force (1,350 PSI)
  • Lion bite force (650 PSI)
  • Tiger bite force (1.050 PSI )
  • Gorilla bite force ( 1,300 PSI)

In terms of bite force, the competition is fair.

Gorillas can bite with a force of 1.300 PSI

Tigers can bite with a force of 1.050 PSI

Despite having a weaker bite, tigers have larger canines. Siberian tiger vs silverback gorilla fight to the Death

Tigers’ canines reach 7.5 cm

Gorilla canines reach 5 cm

The biggest difference is in the use of the bite force.

Bite Force

The Tiger’s bite is designed to tear flesh and pierce bones, tigers use their bites to kill.

Gorillas have a bite designed to cut vegetables and fruits, they don’t use their bites to kill. Siberian tiger vs silverback gorilla fight to the Death

In terms of strength, we don’t have much information.

Once in India, a Bengal tiger dragged a 800 kg gaur over 13 meters, 13 men depending on size and strength may not be able to drag the gaur by a meter.

(Again, Bengal tigers are approximately 20% smaller than Siberian tigers)

The anatomical model of a large Siberian tiger

Gorillas are very strong animals, but they don’t have the killer instincts of a tiger. And not prepared to fight back. The biggest reason for the gorilla’s defeat is in its peaceful nature and in experience in fighting and killing animals in the wild.. Something the tiger is very good at.

Gorillas have never fought big predators like cats, guars, bears, crocodiles, etc… Siberian tiger vs silverback gorilla fight to the Death

I’m sure by now you already know who would win…That’s right, the Siberian tiger will definitely kill the Gorilla, even on a one on one combat, I believe the tiger will take down the gorilla.

So what’s my Opinion and Conclusion?

Cats are too quick for a Gorilla. they have the best reflexes. When a Gorilla would charge at a Tiger, The Tiger would easily evade it, Trip it and mount on it from the back with a firm grip on the back of the neck. No escape to Gorilla from then on. The Tigers are known to kill baby elephants, Silverback Gorilla would be not much of a difficult task.
