The Bengal Tiger is a Carnivore.The bengal tiger is not a herbivore but is a keystone species as it controls the population of other animals.This shows its mutualism.
Bengal Tigers have been known to take other predators, such as leopards, wolves, jackals, foxes, crocodiles, Asiatic black bears, sloth, bears, and dholes as prey, although these predators are not typically a part of their diet.
The Bengal tigers' rival predators are mainly leopards, wild dogs, and bears.
Many tigers contain small bacterium inside of their anuses that feed on digested matter during excrementation. This is an example of commensalism because the bacterium receive nourishment from the tiger's feces, where the tiger receives nothing in return
Bengal tigers are not parasites.But Tigers have parasites,Some examples of parasites that would live on a tiger would be fleas, ticks, and worms.
Bengal tigers have been seen to cooperate while hunting with other tigers.
A tiger can eat 100 pounds of meat a night! Compare that to 400 hamburgers! They need a lot of food because they go days between meals.
You can hear a tiger roar over a mile away!
Tigers have round pupils and yellow irises (except for the blue eyes of white tigers). Due to a retinal adaptation that reflects light back to the retina, the night vision of tigers is six times better than that of humans.
