The big daddy of the big cats The tiger is the largest of the cat family. The Siberian tiger is the largest of all tigers The animal's body is extended, flexible, its head is roundish, the legs not especially long, but the tail, on the other hand, is rather long, and equally furry for its entire length. The tiger is a huge, powerful animal, and even in the zoo conditions leaves a lasting impression of an animal that is nimble and quick. Their size is impressive. An adult can have a footpad ranging in size from 9 to 13 cm. Tigers reach 180-280 cm in length, with 90 cm tail, and total body weight can reach 272 kg. No two tigers have the same stripe pattern. Each is unique, like human fingerprints.
STRIPE PATTERNS ARE DIFFERENT ON EACH SIDE OF THE BODY. UNLIKE MOST CATS, THE TIGER IS FOND OF WATER AND IS A GOOD SWIMMER, SOMETIMES PLUNGING INTO LAKES AFTER PREY. A TIGER'S ROAR CAN BE HEARD 2KM AWAY. THE TIGER HAS A REPUTATION AS A MAN-EATER BUT IT'S RARE FOR IT TO ATTACK PEOPLE. WHEN HUNTING, IT USES COVER SUCH AS TREES AND BUSHES TO HIDE AND THEN SNEAKS UP ON ITS PREY. When close by it will suddenly rush at the prey, killing it by grabbing the throat or top of the neck. If it is a deer or a large wild boar, there is enough to eat for a week or longer. A tiger will take after new prey only after the kill is eaten. The tiger is critically endangered. Only 6,000 remain in the wild. It is illegally killed for its fur and other body parts, and suffers from habitat loss.
