Some environmental conditions that influenced the evolution of tigers was temperature and deforestation.
Most carnivorous mammals evolved from Miacids. Miacids split into 2 lines, one line being Viverravidae which lead to Proilurus. Proilurus, a small weasel like cat lead to Pseudaelurus. That split into 2 major groups Sabre-tooth tigers and Schizailurus. Schizailurus gave rise to Feliz Longenis which evolved into the modern tiger.
