Tiger Facts

The tiger (Panthera tigris) is one of the biggest and most fearsome predators in the world. The body bears black stripes against a brownish yellow to rufous background with a white underside.

The adult animal is solitary and strongly territorial when inhabiting better habitats having fair prey density. The territory of the male in such cases encompasses smaller territories of two or more females.

The distinctive colour scheme of the tiger allows it to camouflage unseen in the forest. (AP Photo)
