Respect[edit]

I do respect knowledgable and friendly people, but have none for those with rude manners using a vile language. BhagyaMani (talk) 08:47, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Siberian Tiger[edit]

As you are interested in big cats in general, I would like to point out that in terms of the largest specimens, the siberian tiger is still the largest, slightly larger than bengal tigers. You can find such information from the existing peer reviewed journals (mainly Mazak's) in the article. But for the average sizes, it's true that historically both bengal tigers and siberian tigers were quite similar in size and now the docile siberian tigers are considerably smaller than the fierce bengal tigers. Bengal tigers from northen India and nepal are also huge though and such information appears in the main tiger article. So it may be worth clarifying this to avoid confusion because when people or scientists talk about the largest, they are usually talking about the largest individuals, not the average size.

Siberian Tiger, Brown Bear and Ussuri brown bear[edit]

You may be interested in our Brown Bear and Ussuri brown bear articles as well, as the same IP editor 155.XXX is obsessed with the bear not fearing the tiger track accuracy. Things have been under control though as he recently communicated in the talk section. Note Yudakov's observations were made on a single day (24 hour periods) and he just reported 1 case of brown bear not fearing tigers, and 1 case of brown bear changing path upon crossing tiger tracks and 1 case of Asiatic (Himalayan) bear not fearing tigers. Compared to Geptner, Yudakov's scale and scope are not in the same league as Geptner source that was based on reviewing studies spanning across years. So even if Yudakov and Geptner came to different conclusions, I still think Geptner review is more reliable and the fact that bears are generally afraid of tigers also agrees with the fact that tigers are predators on bear in their range (i.e. not just siberian tigers but bengal tigers also prey on Asiatic bears). As you are a major editor of various mammalian articles, you may be interested to take a look and take part in the discussions and editing there. Thank you.

Thank you for this invitation! There are so many other aspects of tiger ecology and conservation that I'm not really interested in heated discussions about this relatively petty one. This verbal sparring about who is right and who wrong is fun to observe but not attractive enough to get involved in. -- BhagyaMani (talk) 11:40, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
Lol. Thanks for your tireless contributions to various mammalian articles btw. Big Cats - talk 19:44, 13 November 2014 (UTC)
