Hunting A tiger usually sneaks close to its prey by hiding behind bushes, trees, or large rocks. Then the tiger leaps to attack from behind it’s prey. The tiger grabs it’s prey with it’s claws and pulls it’s prey to the ground. The tiger will bite the animal on it’s throat or on the back of it’s neck.
Hunting The tiger will grab the prey and drag it into the brush. What the tiger can’t eat, is buried to save for another meal.
Conservation Yes, the tiger is hunted by man It is hunted for sport It is also hunted for its beautiful, stripped coat The tiger is endangered
Behavior The tiger lives alone unless they are bringing up cubs. When a tiger’s tail is straight up and wags it slowly, it means “I’m friendly”. When the tail lashes rapidly from side to side, it means “I’m excited”. A lowered tail that twitches from side to side means “ Watch your step, I’m tense”.
