Comparing the Skeletal systeM
facts about tigers
Looking at the skeletal sytems
Tigers and humans have similarities but also differences in their skeletal systems. They both are made up of tendons, cartilage and bones. We will compare the following skeletal parts:
Hands & Feet
The shape of a human skull is more tall and thin.
A human's jaw moves up and down and sideways.
Humans have 32 teeth which are smaller and shorter.
A tiger skull is more long and wide and is made from harder bone.
A tiger's jaw only moves up and down.
Tigers have 30 teeth and they can grow up to 10 cm. They are designed to help the tiger quickly kill its prey and pull the meat off the carcass.
A human has 25 vertebrae
Human's have no tail
The human spine provides more stability to the body
A tiger has 30 vertebrae
Tigers have a long tail, which is part of the spine
The tiger's spine provides more strength and flexbility
Human legs are made for walking and running at a slower pace
Humans have two legs that help them stand upright
Instead of front legs humans have arms that are not used for walking and running
Tigers have longer hind legs that provide power for them to jump up to 10 meters
Tigers can run faster because they have four legs
The front legs have a solid bone that holds strong muscles so they can outrun and grab their prey
HANDs & FEET
Human hands are made for grabbing things and can use tools
Humans have five fingers on their hands and five toes on their feet
The bones in human feet are more flat on the ground to help hold the body upright
Tiger paws are made to balance and support the body when running, climbing and jumping
Tigers have five digits on their front paws and four on their hind paws
The bones in a tiger's feet are more upright to support and stabilize the body
Tigers and humans' skeletal systems are alike because they all contain cartilage, tendons and bone.
However, there are some big differences because tigers and humans are made to do different things. Tigers are made to walk on four legs so they can run fast and hunt while humans only walk on two legs. Tigers bones are also stronger so they can take more damage in a fight.
The human skeleton is madeup of cartilage, tendons and bones. There are in all
The tiger skeleton is also made up of cartilage, tendons and bones. There are in all
with about 30 in just the tail.
