SAVE TIGERS’ LIFE….DESCRIpTION:The tiger (Panthera tigris) is the largest cat species, reaching a total body length of up to 3.3metres (11 ft) and weighing up to 306 kg (670 lb). Their most recognizable feature is a pattern ofdark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with lighter underparts. They have exceptionally stoutteeth, and their canines are the longest among living felids with a crown height of as much as74.5 mm (2.93 in) or even 90 mm (3.5 in). In zoos, tigers have lived for 20 to 26 years, whichalso seems to be their longevity in the wild. They are territorial and generally solitary butsocial animals, often requiring large contiguous areas of habitat that support their preyrequirements. This, coupled with the fact that they are indigenous to some of the more denselypopulated places on earth, has caused significant conflicts with humans.
