Best Answer

Tigers are the heaviest of the big-cats, but are heavily muscled enough, to reach speeds capable of catching running deer in short bursts. Tigers have been documented reaching speeds up to 32 mph in a sprint. Normally, tigers do not need to run as fast as their smaller cousins (lionesses 36mph, cheetahs 68mph) though. Their camouflage, works with their wooded environment and provides them with a close-quarter arena, where stealth enables them to get quite close to their intended prey before revealing itself. Even a human could catch up to a deer if they approach it within a close enough range.
A lion is a large tawny colored cat that lives in northwestern India and Africa.
