    Short answer, no. Long answer, gorillas are strong enough to kill a bear but they don't have the fighting skills to hurt it worse than it will hurt them. I don't think gorillas know how to fight, they rely a lot more on intimidation displays. Bears are really big and strong too, they have more fat padding, they have a better jaw for biting (gorillas grab and then bite), and they have claws.

    Bear won't even feel it's punches through fat and fur. And gorillas don't strangle their opponents. Monke is fricking dead 100%.

    In a fight to the death? The bear probably takes it if both animals knew that there wasn't any other option but to kill the other guy.

    In a more regular type of fight like what you'd see after a major earthquake at the zoo the gorilla would probably get a few good pops on the bear and send it running for the hills based on pure aggression. Silverbacks are ridiculously aggressive and territorial whereas black bears are much more interested in eating berries and tottering around the woods looking for goodies.

    I looked up the biggest specimens of both and apparently the biggest gorilla ever was 860lbs and the biggest black bear ever was 1100lbs

    Can a bear beat a gorilla at a tree climbing contest?

      Depends on the kind of tree. Gorillas can climb thinner ones, but bears can climb thicker ones because they don't grab, they use claws like a squirrel.

    no. bears have natural weapons (claws), where as gorillas at most have their teeth.
    plus, gorillas have more exposed skin, where as bears have a bit of protection due to fur.

    Didn't the Romans kidnap animals and make them fight in the coliseum? Surely they made a bear fight a gorilla at some point.

      Gorillas weren't "discovered" to Western knowledge until relatively recently. As usual European scientists wrote them off as make believe creatures. You'd think after the first hundred or so times they'd learn to trust eyewitness accounts from people who actually, y'know, live in the area and might know a little better about local fauna than some rando from Edinburgh. That's that good old Enlightenment attitude for ya.

      They can but then again at least one leopard has been killed by a gorilla
      >Not even a tiger can beat a small bear
      They kill ussuri brown bears, which are enormous. Sloth bears are small but they’re far more dangerous than other bears

        most of the time when a tiger kills a bear it's young, female and small

          There’s been instances of tigers preying on bears bigger than themselves, and not long ago the carcass of an adult male brown bear who had been killed by a tiger was found. Just because they don’t tend to hunt large adult bears doesn’t mean they can’t, it just means the risk isn’t usually worth it
          >young, female and small
          So then they can kill small bears

      Mostly females and children and always from behind and/or while the gorilla is sleeping. 1v1 silverback vs leopard no sneak means the silverback wins no contest.

    no gorilla can defeat a bear. Any type of bear.

        pandas can break bamboo with their bites and they're good enough climbers with all that mass so they wouldn't go down easy. the problem is i can't see a gorilla manhandling one
