Tigers live in a diverse array of habitats such as tropical rainforests, mangrove swamps, evergreen forests, grasslands, savannahs, and rocky areas.
The Tigers is the largest cat species, most recognisable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside.
All subspecies of tiger have white spots or 'flashes' on the backs of their ears; the reasons for these remain mostly unknown. It has been speculated that these markings are illusory 'eyes' to fool prey, or they may serve to discourage other predators who normally hunt and attack from behind.
Tiger habitat is being overtaken by agricultural land, timber cutting, access routes, human settlement and hydroelectric dams – all of which have contributed to a 93% loss of the historic tiger range over the last 100 years. All of this is creating small pockets of land in which tigers now live which are surrounded by rapidly increasing human populations
Poaching is a massive threat for the last 3,000 wild tigers.
