The tiger is a wild animal. It lives in the forest. It is a very ferocious animal by nature. It is a carnivorous animal. It is a reserved animal. The protected forests are the places of their living. The people have to face the law if they kill a tiger. In cases of danger it may be done. Tiger lives in dense forest. Its habits are very peculiar. It likes to eat the fresh flesh of the animals. Tiger has no habit of living their prey. A mature tiger's weight is about 90-310 k.g. It can live 20-216 years (as a captive). Tiger is called very strong animal. Its place is just after lion. It is the national animal of India.
Tiger is a species of our world. It needs protection to live freely over the forests. Some years ago there was a much terror for them because of the hunters. But government has taken necessary steps to preserve them. There is law in our country for them. It will be highly affected towards the ill-doers against tigers.
Now tiger’s numbers are on the rise. There are near about 3890 tigers are living as wild animals (according to WWF). But the issue is that we need much more work to save them. It is because this is still vulnerable to extinction.
The amazing fact about the tiger is that a tiger can primarily rely on sight and sound rather than perfume of hunting. They can hunt alone. They stalk their prey. A tiger has the capacity to consume up to 88 pounds of meat at one time. Tigers generally gives birth two to four children (cubs) every two years. There is an amazing fact about the tigers that if all the cubs in one litter die, a second litter may produce within five months.
From two year tigers live the lives of independence. The tigers attain sexual maturity at the age of three to five years. Their juvenile mortality is high. The strange fact is that half of all cubs do not survive more than two years. They can reach up to 20 years of age in the wild. Amur is the largest subspecies of tiger (male). Its weight is about 660 pounds. The smallest subspecies of tiger (male) is Sumatran tiger. It is not more than 310 pounds.
When we shall talk about the tigers they are a lonely, fragile and solitary animal by its nature. Living behind their mother and offspring an individual tiger is the king of a large territory .Their size is mostly depended on the availability of prey.
Tigers faced unrelenting pressures from poaching, retaliatory killings and habitat loss. They were faced to compete for places in dense forests just because of growing human populations. According to the story of WWF in November, 2016 tigers had stopped declining and seemed to be on the rise.
In zoo we also find tigers. Zoo- keepers keep those tigers with ultimate care and protection. But to watch the tigers in playful mood is exciting thing. The persons who like to go in expedition are blessed to see them in their original view. Now the T.V channels like discovery, man vs. wild are very helpful to see the tigers in their own shape. Climate change is a very bad thing. It not only affects the mangrove but it also destroys the abode of the Royal Bengal tigers. According to the study of WWF without any solution a foot sea level rise could finish the total habitat of Sundarban tigers.
