Phylum Chordata

Tigers reproduce from November to April, with a gestation period of 3 months. Tigers have 2 or 3 tiger cubs at a time. At 18 months old,a cub is able to hunt for itself. Cubs tend to grow rapidly, putting on 100 g of weight every day.They stay with the mother for around 2 to 3 years, before going off on their own.

The tiger is the largest big cat in the world, reaching 2.5 metres in length and averaging about 300kg. The tiger is native to east and southern Asia.

Phylum - Chordata


There are six subspecies of tiger : Bengal, Indochinese, Malayan, Sumatran, Siberian and the South China Tiger. The average Tiger diet consists of: snakes, boar, buffalo, crocodiles, deer, leopards and camels. They catch prey by using silence and stalking it, as well as their sheer size and weight to overpower their food.

Tigers typically are orange with black stripes, though white and sandy coloured markings are common. The white tiger tiger is rare, with bright white fur and black stripes. White tigers are the result of a genetic mutation. Tigers tend to live up to 18-25 years, but due to human confrentation, tigers run the risk of becoming extinct.

Panthera tigris

Tigers are highly adaptable animals, with territory ranging from Siberia, to open grasslands and tropical mangrove swamps in central and south-east Asia. The tiger is also an extremely territorial animal and the tiger is generally a solitary animal. Due to the space it needs however, human and tiger territories do overlap. This causes troubles such as potching of the big cats.
