    I am a nature fan and after watching many animal attack videos the question of which would win this battle (if it was to happen) is a toss up. Heres some videos for size compare.

    Grizzlies fight
    Grizzly VS Moose
    Grizzly VS Cariboo

    Polar Bear VS Walrus

    Depends on who is the home team. The polar bear if the fight is on the frozen tundra. The Grizzly anywhere else.

    Grizzly bear, but I say a Tiger beats them both.

    Global warming will get them all. So to answer your question: Al Gore would win.

    boy, where are the guys in TV programing when you need them. I'd love to see a 13 week series, each week another battle like this - grizzly vs polar bear, polar bear vs tiger, 40 migets vs tiger, etc. now that is entertainment.

    Know thy internet classics.

    Anyway, Discovery used to run some show called Animal Face-Off where they would conduct biomechanical research with the help of people like Timothy Treadwell and Mr. Crickey and then they would let them fight in a computer simuation. Sadly, their online application doesn't feature the named animals and I don't think the show ever featured them, so let's get this discussion started!

    Can the contestants be modified? I'd like to see the whale outfitted with a laser gun and cloaking device, and the gorilla outfitted with body armour, and titanium claws and jaws.

    Probably a silverback gorilla, with a grizzly for dessert. [​IMG]

    I think that is, or was, a walrus (weighing up to 3,500 pounds).

    And also better at stalking. Grizzlies are stealthier than you think, but nowhere near a tiger.

    A liger, now that's a real dangerous animal. Gosh!

    What about a blue whale vs all? I think the blue whale has a good shot, especially if it has home field advantage.

    Sadly, Man is the most vicious animal on Earth. Not even a gang of blue whales could survive a single human's onslaught. Wow, I'm such a Debbie Downer.
