Some people think that, because the tiger is heavier, it would be slower than the lion. But this is a ridiculous theory. You see, the cheetah is heavier than the gazelle, but the cheetah is still faster. This is because the cheetah is built for speed. it's legs can move faster, and it is more narrow and streamlined. This is also true for the tiger and lion. Tigers are more streamlined than lions, and their legs can move faster and are stronger. Plus, the lion's mane slows it down, not because the mane is heavy (because it isn't) but because the mane adds resistance and takes away from how smoothly the animal can run.

The truth is, it's not seen by them so I will tell you the real speed of those two big cats.

A ridiculous theory is, that tiger run faster because lions mane slows him down ad weight is nothing like cheetah is faster than gazelle and it weights more.Actually t is true hat lighter animals are quicker than heavier as the heavier animals must carry their weight which slows them down.Lions mane is only protective fur nothing more.Its not a wig that is glued to lion for ever or it weights something.

Cheetah theory is ridiculous and made in purpose to make a lion look slower. The lie is, the cheetah is made for speed, and other cats are actually made for creeping or fighting.

Lions are faster as their paws are longer, the movements of paws are equal in speed, and lion is lighter.

The tiger look as faster creature as the thing called illusion. When you see a tiger reaching full speed in the forest, you can clearly compare the trees as they get passed. A lion lives in grasslands where isn't much things to compare.
