The tiger (panthera tigris) is one of the biggest and most fearsome predators in the world. The tiger resembles cat in every respect except size. It has same sleek body, heavily padded paws, stiff white whiskers and rough tongue .It has the same sharp sense of sight, smell and hearing. It moves with same stealthy tread, grace and cunning. Like the cat it loves to be alone, hunts at night and relishes meat.

 
 

PHYSICAL FEATURE: The tiger has a golden-fawn body with dark, black vertical stripes which run on either side from its spine down to its belly. The stripes, vary from brown to black, are lighter on the under parts of the body. The belly and the chest of the tiger are white. With age the tiger's stripes get fainter in colour and more spaced. Some tigers have very few stripes on the front-half of their bodies. The size and colour of tiger varies according to the climate.

 
 

In general male tigers weigh between 180 and 320 kg and females between 120 and 180 kg .In actual fact the average length of a tiger is about three and a quarter metres. A tiger is normally measured from its head to the tip of its tail. The tigress is about one-third of a metre shorter than the male. The height of the tiger is a little over a metre. Of the living subspecies, Sumatran tigers are the

 
  smallest, and Siberian Tigers are the largest.  
 

A young tiger's coat is fluffy and its sand -coloured. As it grows older, its colour becomes richer and its stripes become bolder, prominent and more distinct. The female's colouring is brighter than the male's. In winter, the animal grows a thick coat of fur and its colour becomes richer. As summer approaches some of this fur is shed and the stripes lose their brightness. The tiger's whiskers are hard and white. The back of each ear is black with a white spot in the centre. The tiger's colour and stripes are an effective camouflage.In the summer

they merge with the gold dried leaves and the withered undergrowth so closely that it is extremely difficult to spot or to trace the animal.
AGE:The life span of tigers on an average is around 8 to 15 years. Tigers in zoos live longer (between 16 and 20 years).
WHERE IT IS FOUND:
There is no tiger in North or South America, Australia or even Africa. It is generally believed that the original home of the tiger was northern Russia, from where it spread eastwards to Manchuria, Korea, China, Burma, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaya, Java, Sumatra and the Island of Bali.

mainland had been submerged in the sea before the tiger entered India. The tiger entered India from Burma and gradually established haunts in Assam, Bengal, the foot-hills of the Himalayas, and the central and southern India. Indian subcontinent is the home of 80% of world's tigers. It is found in dense forest, valleys, caves, forested hills, and the banks of rivers and streams. In the Himalayas, tigers are found up to an altitude of 2400 to 2700 metres.
