The Tiger is the World’s Super Cat

Posted on 07. Nov, 2009 by in Animals

Tigers

Graceful, regal, strong and solitary, tigers are the biggest of the wild cats but carry their weight most elegantly. Their black stripes across their reddish brown fur help them hide in foliage as they stalk their prey. They are the only cats that enjoy playing in water, even in the freezing lakes of the Siberian forests!

At one time, tigers were found across Iraq, large parts of South and East Asia and Russia. Spread out with nine sub-species until even sixty years ago, today only seven tiger species survive. These big cats are killed for their fur and their bones. The Bengal tiger, which lives in parts of India, Bangladesh, and Nepal, are the most numerous but are still at a high risk of facing extinction.

Did you know? All big cats, including tigers, have a white spot behind their ears.
