They are known to bring down animals weighing almost ten times their own weight and then dragging them away to shelter. A tiger itself weighs between 130 - 180kgs. A majority of this consists of muscle mass as the skeleton itself is relatively small and fragile. Tigers grow to an average height of 90cms. Their main prey species are herbivores, the favourites being spotted deer. They eat an average of 5 kgs in a sitting and can eat up to 25 kgs in a day. A kill can feed a tiger for 2 - 4 days. Tigers mostly do not try and make another kill immediately after finishing with the previous one. They usually give a 2-3 break before setting out on the next hunt. They have a life expectancy ranging from 15 - 20 years. <br />
