Not just that his posts are just ridiculous, unsupported, and contrary to common logic, but he continues to pester and troll as if he is correct. Guess what, you arent all knowing and best of all, you GOT no sources whatsoever. There is hardly any evidence they co existed, interacted or lived in the same areas in india. You forgot to mention the fact that tigers came last to india. Lions had india first. Nobody cares what you think to yourself, we couldnt care less. You got no new information to offer in this debate - which is the whole point of one.

Lions in india do run in groups, just like lions do in africa. They can hardly survive in a jungle habitat - lions prefer savannah like areas. Tigers prefer jungles. Most of india is jungles, anyways.

Lions in India do live socially, but in different ways to African lions :

Asiatic lions (Panthera leo persica), now found only in the Gir forests of Gujarat, Western India, exhibit a social system wherein: prides essentially comprise only of females and their dependent cubs, while adult males live their lives separately, alone or in coalitions (Joslin 1973; Chellam 1993; Jhala et al. 2009; Meena 2009). Males encompass one-to-many female prides but are not an integral part of any particular pride. Interactions between males and female groups are limited mostly to matings with receptive lionesses and infrequent congregations on large kills (Meena 2009; Banerjee 2012).
Also, female prides of Asiatic lions are smaller, averaging at 2 adult females (Meena 2009; Banerjee 2012) which often lack estrous synchrony (present study), leading to less simultaneous mating opportunities for males.

hmmm I wonder what I said on the old board. I recall seeing Bush Dogs hunt large prey and seeing Clouded Leopards hunt.
