The life cycle of a tiger

If tigers go extinct due to poaching there could be multiple effects on the world. One effect it could have is what it eats would be too big in population and there wouldn’t be enough food for them and other animals. The animals that would be too large in population would be deer, wild pig, water buffalo, and antelope. Another effect that could happen is the forests could get warmer. They could get warmer because tigers wouldn’t protect them so illegal loggers would cut down trees causing the greenhouse effect and some animals wouldn’t have a home. The last effect is businesses that rely on tigers could go out of business. For example zoos and wildlife areas. These are the multiple effects that could happen if tigers go extinct due to poaching.

Tigers are an interesting animal. Tigers can be very large in size. They are 9 feet long on average, including their tail. The tiger's diet is made up of meat because they are carnivores. Mainly their diet consists of deer, wild pig, water buffalo and antelope, but occasionally they eat other animals. Lastly, their life span is short compared to humans They can only live from 12 to 20 years. This is why tigers are interesting animals.

The life cycle of a Tiger is fascinating. First, the mother tiger has a litter of 2-3 cubs. Secondly, the cubs hunt with their mother a 5-6 months old. Next, the cubs hunt on their own at one year old. Then the cubs leave their mom at 3-5 years old and are now adult tigers. They are now ready to have cubs of their own. Lastly, they live for 12-20 years. This is the fascinating life cycle of a tiger.
