Watch: Face-off between Royal Bengal Tiger and Black bear

Screengrab from the video in which the Royal Bengal tiger takes on a black bear

It is rare to see the clash of the titans in the wild like a tiger taking on a bear. A viral video posted by Uttarakhand Forest Research Institute on Twitter shows this remarkable face-off.


The Royal Bengal tiger cautiously approaches from behind to seize the black bear. Without getting terrified the bear turns around to confront the big cat and finally chases it away!

India is home to four species of bears, namely the Himalayan Brown bear, Asiatic Black bear, Sloth bear and Sun bear.
