False. A tiger is taller.

Thanks Leion, Heksie, Philip, and Porridge, for your participation. :clap: Although tigers weigh more than lions, on average, a male lion stands 14cm taller at the shoulder than a male tiger!

So, for being different, that makes you IT, Philip. :wink:

TRUE; ram is correct. (Although I have heard it called a bull, I think this is probably not the preferred word.)

Unfortunately I cannot award this to anyone, as a rabbit's favourite food is not root vegetables, and certainly not carrots as suggested in a million cartoons and comic-book strips! They prefer softer, green stuff. 8)

Hi OWN and Heksie :)

Piet Grobler: A nyala bull. Interesting is that the male is called a bull and the females are called ewes where it is in all other cases bull/cow (Larger animals) and ram/ewe for smaller animals.

WildLife Ranching.com: The nyala antelope shows a marked sexual dimorphism in size with a large male and a much smaller female. As a result the male is known as a bull in common with the larger antelope species and the female a ewe in common with the smaller antelopes. Young males are camouflaged by their colour pattern which resembles that of a female. This protects them from the aggressive behaviour of the dominant male.


It could be interesting to see what other Wild Life experts can tell us :?

Maybe the two of you will have the answer in your Library? (Help) :thumbs_up:

I have been taught it is a bull :redface:

Fact or myth and why?

Elephants become drunk when they forage on the fruit of the Marula tree.

Definitely a Bull. The nyala is the only antelope where the female is a ewe and the male is the bull. This is due to their size difference and this is where you find the divide - any male equal to or larger than a nyala is a bull, and any female equal to or smaller than a nyala is a ewe. This is one of the first "interesting facts" you are taught in African vertebrate classes in Zoology. This is also common knowledge among the hunting community. So I'm with Philip on this one :thumbs_up:
