Order: Carnivora Family: Felidae Length: 2.3 meters Mass: 120 kg Diet: Large mammals Weapons: Precision oriented jaws, manual claws One of the most famous of all the big cats. Known to take down very large prey, such as gaur and water buffalo.
Order: Carnivora Family: Ursidae Length: 1.6 meters Mass: 125 kg Diet: Ants, termites, fruits Weapons: Canine teeth, manual claws Can be distinguished from other bears with its thick and shaggy coat. Extremely aggressive and often repels tigers.
While sloth bears have been known to repel tigers due to their defensively aggressive behaviour, I still believe a tigress can kill a sloth bear in a fight to death. Sloth bears are actually the least mascular bears and having the weakest jaws in comparison to other bears despite being among the most aggressive.

Why tigress. We have only one fight caught on video of a tiger actually fighting with a sloth bear. The tiger is a big male Bengal tiger and the sloth bear is a she-bear. Ordinarily, a tiger will not fight with a bear who is facing him. But every now and then, a tiger is bold enough to fight. In this case, the bear was able to defend herself until the tiger's stamina ran dry and so the tiger retreated.
The Grizzly ( Ursus arctos ) "Boss of the Woods" is the Achilles' heel of the big cats.
