Tiger

The tiger (Panthera tigris) is the largest cat species, most recognizable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside. The species is classified in the genus Panthera with the lion, leopard, jaguar, and snow leopard. Tigers are apex predators, primarily preying on ungulates such as deer and bovids. They are territorial and generally solitary but social animals, often requiring large contiguous areas of habitat that support their prey requirements. This, coupled with the fact that they are indigenous to some of the more densely populated places on Earth, has caused significant conflicts with humans.

Why the tiger is King

Tigers have a grouping of stripes above their foreheads that resembles the Chinese characters meaning "king." This is one reason why they are so renowned in some Asian cultures.

Did you know, Tigers scratch trees and use their urine to mark their territories and that their urine smells strongly of buttered popcorn? Interesting!
