Rare Animals of the World - Tiger


The tiger is the largest existing carnivore of the cat family, some of
the species reaching a weight of 250kg (approximately 551 lbs.) or
more. Unlike the lion, the tiger is a solitary animal, forming no groups.
Its remarkable stripepattern plays the role of camouflage, allowing
the species to blend in with its surrounding environments such as
forests. The tiger inhabits various regions, and unlike other species
belonging to the cat family, it actually likes water. Tigers inhabiting
tropical zones especially spend hours in the water. Currently, five sub-
species of the tiger, including the Bengal tiger (5,000 to 7,200 indi-
viduals in total), are widely scattered throughout Asia. All of the sub-
species have been decreasing in number and suffer the danger of ex-
tinction due to poaching for their fur coat, whiskers, and bones.
