The home to Royal Bengal Tigers (Indian Tigers or panthera tigris) is India Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, and Burma where these graceful animals live mostly in sanctuaries. The usual habitats for these animals are dense forest, mangrove swamps, savannahs, rocky countries and lush grassland.
Royal Bengal Tigers are the most numerous in population than any other Tiger subspecies. They are the largest living member of the cat family and the fastest running animal.
Royal Bengal Tigers (and all the Order Carnivora consisting of cats, dogs, bears, weasels) are descendants of a marten-like animal called the miacidae, which evolved during the late Cretaceous period. The Saber-tooth Tiger was not the ancestor of modern Tigers; it was an evolutionary dead-end.
In the wild Royal Bengal Tigers are pure carnivores and hunt medium-sized animals, such as rabbits, badgers, water buffalos, deer, wild boars, goats and sometimes they hunt domestic cattle. A Royal Bengal Tiger will drag the kill to a safe place to eat. They are able to eat up to 40 pounds at a time and then go without eating for days.
Some Tigers become man-eaters, but it happens to be very rare. In the zoo Royal Bengal Tigers are fed chicken, horsemeat and kangaroo meat five days a week and fast on bones twice a week.
Though slim and elegant, tigers are immensely powerful. Their front legs and paws are tremendously strong: they can kill young elephants and rhino and drag prey weighing 200 kg. (5001 bs.) Or more. Read more
