Croc kills tiger after night-long duel

KOLKATA: Some time on Monday evening, two of the most feared predators of the Sunderbans clashed in a battle of claws and fangs. It was a fight to the death and it lasted all night. As daylight broke on Tuesday, the carcass of a tigress was found on the banks of a creek with a 14-foot-long crocodile guarding the kill.

Wildlife experts say this is the first such documented case in the Sunderbans. Though crocodiles and tigers do come in contact this is the first time that a crocodile has stalked and hunted a tiger in the mangroves.

Nope, Sunderbans tigers are just slightly larger than Sunda and Southeast Asian tigers, a fully grown saltie outweighs the tiger at least by twice twice, if not more.

Sundarbans Tigers are relatively small tigers anyway.
