Polar Bear v Leopard Seal
#16
Quote:Well hunting prey with a low sucess rate doesn't mean it not able to kill it. Leopard seals only catch the weak and unwary panguins in general. Lions fail in catching zebras at times yet they are still capable of killing zebras.
The big difference here is that zebras are larger than lions and can sometimes actually pose a threat, a young crabeater seal isn't causing any harm to an adult leopard seal, and failing to kill one with such a large size advantage is very unimpressive, especially when it had many chances to kill the seal. Also a young crabeater seal is several levels under an adult polar bear.

Quote:A 1000 to 1300 pound leopard seal will be larger than most polar bears.
No.. it honestly wouldn't.

Lets assume this is 570kg.
570kg is 1,256 pounds, this is the average weight for the Foxe Basin Polar bear, you're using an above average sized leopard seal at 1,000+ pounds while they average around 800 pounds.

Also according to wikipedia crabeater seal pups are about 220 pounds when weaned, so this means this seal is facing off against an animal 1,000+ pounds more than their ideal prey. Leopard seals have also given me the impression that they're sort of clumsy.

I think the polar bear killing the seal is much more foreseeable than the reverse.

The bear has never had to factor with such a formidable species of seal.

Certainly, when waterborne, the seal will be capable of dealing to the bear, at will.

Polar bear's average weight:

Quote:In the Beaufort Sea, males average 450 kg (992 lb) on maturity. They are nearly twice the weight of females. The heaviest male polar bear ever recorded was 1,002 kg (2,209 lb). The bear was shot in northern Alaska (Kotzebue Sound) in 1960.

If a polar bear is on average 992 pounds, then a large female leopard seal at 1000 pounds should outweigh most male polar bears. The average leopard seal is 350 kgs though.

I believe the polar bear still has a good chance in the shallow waters.

Don't polar bears prey on these seals? In any case they win on land and I suppose the seal wins in the water.

Polar bears prey on ringed seals all the way up to bearded seals and occasionally walrus, beluga, and narwhale.

Leopard seal very agile, fast and strong in water. Also has good jaw and teeth.

Polar bear is slicing machine on land.

Seal in water and bear on land.
