<p>Slide 1</p> <p>In this presentation you will learn all about Tigers.</p> <p>Information about TigersTigers are easily recognized by its coat of reddish-orange with dark stripes, the tiger is the largest wild cat in the world. The big cat weighs up to 720 pounds (363 kilograms), stretches 6 feet (2 meters) long, and has a 3-foot- (1-meter-) long tail. The powerful predator generally hunts alone, able to bring down prey such as deer and antelope. Tigers wait until dark to hunt. Once a tiger has spotted its prey, it sneaks as close as possible to its victim. Then the tiger sprints to the unsuspecting animal, usually pulling it off its feet with its teeth and claws. If the prey animal is large, the tiger bites its throat to kill it; smaller prey is usually killed when the tiger breaks its neck.</p> <p>Habitats of the tigersUnlike most members of the cat family, tigers seem to enjoy water. They swim well and often soak in streams or pools of water to cool off. Some tigers live where it gets very coldin India and parts of southeast Asia. There are five subspecies of tiger: Bengal, South China, Indochinese, Sumatran, and Siberian. Tigers that live in cold northern areas are usually bigger and heavier than those that live in tropical habitats. No two tigers have exactly the same pattern of stripes. A tiger retracts its claws as it walks, leaving no claw marks in its tracks. Tigers live in both tropical and temperate forests as well as in swamps. They are never found far from water.</p> <p>Tigers eat small animals such as turtles and frogs, as well as large animals such as buffalo and large deer.</p> <p>Different types of TigersTiger Species Overview of tiger subspecies.
