Tiger Family & Ancestors
Some of the tiger relations are the Lion,
Leopard, Cheetah, Jaguar, Saber tooth, Panthers, Longdan tiger,
Tiger cubs look very similar to their parents, they are just very tiny. A baby tiger at birth weighs about 2-3 lbs. They cant open there eyes for about 12 days. After that it still takes another two weeks for their vision to develop. Only 2-3 tigers survive to adulthood. Baby tigers start hunting at about 10 months old, at this age they weigh almost 100 lbs.
A tiger in the wild is usually alive about 10-15 years. A tiger in a zoo is usually alive about 20-26 years. A tiger has babies about every 2-2.5 years. There is usually about 7 cubs in one litter. The Gestational time is about 3 and a half months.
Tigers live in large groups called ambush, swift, streak. They live in a group of about 10. When a tiger shows aggression the tail is usually lashed form side to side, the head is held low, the ears are twisted so that the back face forward, the eyes are open wide, and the mouth is almost closed with the lips forming a straight line. Some ways they communicate are by tail movement, purring, they sometimes stick out there claws, they roar for long-distance communication. They will pin back there ears if they are angry. Vocal sounds like hisses, growls, and snarls are used in aggression. Some sounds are like grunting, meowing, purring, and woofing.
People are saving tigers by building sanctuaries to take in abandoned ones. They are also keeping them in captivity to mate and have babies, and then they are released in the wild. Others have ideas to put up signs and raise money, which doesn't help very much. Some people also tell poachers to stop hunting(doesn't help very much either)
Tigers sleep about 18-20 hours everyday!!!!
That means they are only awake about 6 hrs.!!!!!!!!
They have eyes with many colors like brown, green,
yellow, orange, tan, and sometimes black.
A tigers eyesight is about the same as a humans!!!!!
Even though they can see at night because it has a larger interior and lense.
"When a man wants to murder a tiger, he calls it sport;
when the the tiger wants to murder the man, he calls it ferocity. The distinction between crime and justice in no greater....."
"God made the cat so that man
might have the pleasure of caressing
