At one time everyone has liked or maybe loved tigers. They are amazing creatures, they’ve been threw so much as a species they should be adored. We’ve all seen a tiger sometime in our lives so we aren’t blind to their existence. At this moment tigers are the most endangered animals in the world and this needs to be fixed
The tiger is the largest cat species in the world; the largest tiger subspecies is the Siberian tiger. The weight of the male is 500-600 pounds and the female is 300-400 pounds. The average length of the male tiger is 8-10 feet and the female 6-8 feet. The appearance of the tiger depends to a great extent on where the animal lives. Tigers that live in colder places are paler in color, larger in size, and their fur is long and thick. In warmer places, tigers are smaller in size and more colourful and they have shorter, thinner fur. All the fur on the tiger’s back is very thick and the stripes aren’t as bold. The color of the Siberian tiger is yellowish-brown, while the Indian tiger is reddish-brown. Like all cats, tigers have sharp claws and teeth.
Before tigers would have lived from Java, Bali, southern Asia, eastern shores of Asia, and the west of India. Today, tigers are no more found west of India or on the islands of Java and Bali. The few living tigers are in China, Southern Asia, which these are mostly isolated habitats. Tigers could be found in a variety of habitats. They range from tropical forests, evergreen forests, woodlands, grasslands, and savannas. Some other preferred habitats include dense thickets or long grass along river banks. Tigers rely on cover for stalking and killing their prey, they seek areas with ample food, water and moderately dense cover. Tigers are adaptable animals, so they can adapt to many different surroundings, as long as they have sufficient water, shade and food.
The main predator of tigers are humans. Tigers have been trapped, chemically killed and heavily hunted by humans for sport for simple gain like trophies and skins. Humans have also affected the natural habitats of tigers by their destruction and intrusion on the tigers feeding range. Humans are destroying their habitats by cutting down trees, polluting the water, and hunting their prey. In 2006 india’s tiger population was at 1,411. The numbers are now thought to have fallen to 1,000 and the world tiger population numbers to about 5,000 to 7,000 animals. Unfortunately, tigers are still hunted illegally for their fur, bones and other parts and this needs to stop immediately before the are forever gone.
Tiger are strong powerful animals and a time ago they were free to live on their own and not be bothered by humans. Now tho tigers have been hunted to near extinction by poachers. An intense effort is under way to save the endangered tigers, but still their population numbers are dropping. What we’re doing for them is not enough. This is why tigers are the most endangered animals in the world.
