Transcript of Tigers

TIGERS Who are they? Where do they live? Why are they endangered? What can we do? The tiger is the largest wild cat in the world. Tigers have reddish-orange fur with black stripes. Tigers like to hunt alone. They can kill prey like deer and antelope. Tigers can weigh up to 720 pounds and be 6 feet long. Its tail can be 3 feet long tail. How do they hunt? Smaller prey is killed when the tiger breaks its neck. Tigers wait until dark to hunt Once a tiger has spotted its prey, it sneaks as close as possible to its victim. Then the tiger runs as fast as it can to its prey and pulls it off its feet with its teeth and claws. If the prey animal is large, the tiger bites its throat to kill it; Some tigers live where it gets very cold like India and Asia. Tigers are not like most cats because they like the water. They can swim and like to take baths streams to cool off. Tigers live in both tropical and temperate forests as well as in swamps. They are never found far from water.
The whole species is endangered throughout its range. Tigers have been overhunted for their fur as well as for other body parts that many people use in traditional medicines. Tigers' habitat has also dwindled seriously as humans have developed land for uses such as farming and logging.
Tigers are one of the Earth's fastest disappearing species Endangered: at risk of becoming extinct or having no more of its kind on the planet. Since 1900, the endangered tiger's habitat and numbers have gone down by up to 95 per cent. Poachers, people who hunt animals illegally, poison waterholes or set steel wire traps to kill tigers and their prey so they can sell their skins and body parts for use in traditional Chinese medicine. Habitat loss A camera trap set up by WWF deep in the jungle captured first ever images of a rare female Sumatran tiger and her cubs.
