TIGERS ARE AWESOME - some facts and photos

You can hear a tiger roar over a mile away!

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.

Tigers have been called man eaters, yet they eat frogs, monkeys, porcupines fowl, and tortoises, especially when a good deer is hard to find.

Tigers have eyes that are the brightest of any other animal in the world. At dusk, or in the beam of a torch, they blaze back the ambient light with awe-inspiring intensity.

Tigers can see in the dark six times better than humans can. They can also see in color.

The heaviest tiger recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records is a 1,025-pound male Siberian tiger.

Young tigers live with their mother until they are two to three years old, then they find their own territories.

The life span of tigers in the wild is thought to be about 10 years. Tigers in zoos live twice as long.
