Gray Wolf vs Spotted Hyena

Hey guys this battle was one in which I think a serious upset took place but that is only my opinion, the battle of Gray wolf and Spotted hyena.  Like last time there is quite a bit of data I collected so I will only share a few things.

Gray Wolf:

  • Slender/Powerful Build
  • Runs 34-38 mph
  • 42 26 mm teeth
  • 1500 lb/in^2 bite force
  • 41-63 inches long
  • 32-34 inch shoulder height
  • 11-20 inch tail
  • 29-85 pounds, can get over 100 lbs from time to time (depending on the are it's in)
  • Dense/Fluffy fur with short under fur and long coarse guard hairs
  • Sharp hearing, an hear up to a frequency of 26 kHz
  • Highly territorial
  • 1 inch canines
  • Aggressive
  • Always looking for a fight and will not back out of one
  • Silent/Stealthy hunters
  • Have been known to attack animals up to 3 times their own size
  • Inaccurate Strikers
  • Keen night vision
  • Follows tracks
- Much quicker then the Hyena, more determined to win a fight
I have not nearly as much on the Spotted Hyena but I did get enough to make a realistic match

Spotted Hyena:

  • Powerful neck
  • 37-65.3 inches long
  • 9.8-14 inch long tails
  • 28-36 inch shoulder height
  • 89-225 lbs
  • loud laughter
  • 6443 lb/in^2 bite force (stronger than that of a grizzly bear)
  • Can kill black rhinos
  • Prefers to attack animas from 123.5 lbs to 401.25 lbs
  • Good night vision
  • Aggressive
  • Scavengers
  • Short Hair
-Size and Strength advantage over the wolf, however due to the laughter gives the wolf a good advantage for a sneak attack

Here is how the battle happened...

The scenario started with the hyena feeding off a kill it stole from a lioness, the wolf smells meat and silently investigates, it traces the tracks of the hyena and hears the laughter, it takes it's shot for a sneak attack from behind... it jumps on the hyena and sinks its jaws into the neck of the hyena and the hyena jerks him off, the hyena then takes his chance at the wolf's neck with those powerful jaws and bites into the chest of the wolf, and does not let go, after it knows the wolf is to weak it bites into the neck of the wolf until it's dead.

I ran the simulation numerous times and the only way the wolf would win is if he were to grab and somehow break the hyena's leg, then grab his snout to break it and chew into the neck of the hyena and rip through it.

All in all though the hyena is totally dominant over the wolf winning 89 times out of 100.

I was totally surprised to see this outcome I didn't expect the hyena to win especially with these numbers but a win is a win and thus another matchup settled, so until next time this is Tyler signing off with this message, please read this and tell your friends about this site because I put a lot of effort and time into this thanks.

Wolverine vs Honey Badger

Hello viewers I have recently simulated what I had thought to be the best matchup I could find the Wolverine and the Honey Badger.  I must say it was a close battle  and I will run it through with you guys now.  I grabbed as much data possible when I got these two together because I knew it was gonna be a good matchup, past matchups that they have had in nature, physical characteristics, and behavior was mainly what I wanted to get my hands on in order to make this matchup as realistic as possible.  So lets get to the combatants, I grabbed a lot of data so you can expect that I won't be sharing all of it with you just the main decisive stuff.

  • Stocky/Muscular Build
  • Short legs
  • 26-42 inches long
  • 20-55 lbs
  • Thick Oiley Fur
  • Powerful and Versitle
  • Attacks animals over 18.5 times it's own size including black bears
  • Releases powerful scent from musk glands
  • Slow Reflexes
  • Bad Eyesight
  • Clumsy
  • Runs 16 MPH
  • Has 38 sharp teeth
  • Aggresive when cornered
-Has a size and strength advantage over the Honey Badger, has a stronger bite than the Honey Badger

Honey Badger:

  • 27-29.5 inches long
  • 26-35 pounds
  • Stupid
  • 40 mm long claws
  • Short needle like teeth
  • Releases strong scent from musk glands
  • Wirey Coat
  • Very Quick
  • Very agile
  • Extremely Agressive
  • Relentless in combat
-Much quicker and more agile than the slow reflexed wolverine, however it is a very dumb animal so it may be unpredictable what it does during the battle.

Here is how the battle happened...
The scenario starts with a wolverine feeding off of a wolf's kill, the honey badger approaches the kill wanting to get some food, the wolverine's growl backs up the honey badger and forces him let off a musk scent and to circle around the the wolverine, the wolverine turning with it barely able to keep up gives the honey badger enough confidence to think it could strike... it was wrong it missed and the wolverine was able to take advantage.  It latched onto one of the legs of the honey badger with it's powerful jaws and didn't let go until it broke the honey badger's leg, the wolverine then goes back to the wolf's kill for food but sees the honey badger coming back so the wolverine runs at it's full sprint and pounces on the honey badger and rips it's face to shreds ending the honey badger.

I ran the simulation several more times and the only way the honey badger could really win is if it could get behind the wolverine and hurt it's legs thus making it possible to strike the face of the wolverine because of the lack of support to hold itself up.

All in all a good matchup that the wolverine ended up winning 59 out of 100 times, and one more thing before I publish this I know I said that I would let the comments decide the matchups after this one but I'm gonna do one more that isn't based on the comments because my dad shot a really good matchup at me that I will not reveal until I get the research and data then sim the matchup.

So until next time my friends this is Tyler signing off have a good night (or afternoon or day depending on when you're reading this).

Animal Versus Animal

This is my first blog so I'm sorry if this is bad but it is what it is, so here is what my blog is gonna be, I want you guys to comment about what two animals you want to read about what I think the battle between the two will result in and that is pretty much it.  So I hope to see a lot of match up requests the first one I do is gonna be one that I pick but after that it is up to the comments, I am only 15 though so try not to be to critical but not to soft either I welcome the constructive critism.  I suppose I should have started with this but let me tell you about myself, My name is Tyler, I am very interested in this kind of thing I don't know how it got started it just did, and I really like sports and martial arts, I will try to get to the matchups as soon as possible once I see one I like so until then goodbye viewers.
