When it comes to speed, size and strength, lions are superior to pit bulls. Lions are the second largest cat after the tiger. A lion can stand up to 6 feet tall when on its hind legs and can weigh up to 420 pounds. A pit bull, on the other hand, can be up to 5 feet 7 inches tall, but the average pit bull only weighs around 60 pounds.
