The tiger is the largest of all big cats, and the third largest carnivore on earth (polar and brown bears are in first and second place). Each tiger has a unique black striped pattern on an orange fur coat. With a strong bone structure and powerful muscles, they could leap more than 30 feet in one jump. A super predator these are solitary animals, and require a large space in which to hunt, and enough cover to get close to their prey. They’ll sneak up on their prey before pouncing and biting the neck between the vertebrae to break the spine.

Although 3 to 4 cubs are born, very rarely will more than 1 or 2 survive to maturity. Tigers consume up to 40 kgs of meat in a meal!
