Bengal Tigers Science project part 1 By Laksmi
Bengal Tigers’ physical description A Bengali Tiger’s coat is yellow to light orange, with stripes ranging from dark brown to black; the belly is white, and the tail is white with black rings.
Where Do Bengal Tigers Live? Bengal Tigers are found in dense forests, mangrove swamps, and jungles throughout India, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal. The Bengal Tiger lives in temperate forests which have relatively mild summers and cold winters they also live in tropical rain forests which are hot are year round
How they adapted to their biome Tigers are warm blooded so they can live in many kinds of biomes. It's body coverings help it grow and survive. They are good at hunting and it's fur can help it blend in with grass to ambush prey and. There are many animals that tigers can take down like bears, crocodiles, hyenas, water buffalo, pythons, that is only some. They have accurate hearing and can walk quietly. Also have powerful backbones, capable of long jumping distances, powerful jaws, and powerful claws to help hold on a prey.
How do Bengal Tigers catch their food? Bengal tigers are large predatory cats, meaning that the food they eat must be of sufficient biomass to power this large animal. Because their prey is so big, most tigers expend a lot of energy stalking, chasing, and bringing down their prey to ensure a capture. In the actual killing of prey, Bengal tigers will usually leap from the grass they were hiding in, latch onto a prey animal with their retractable claws, pull the prey animal the the ground, and use its extremely powerful jaws to quickly crush the animal's windpipe. After that, the tiger will tear pieces of flesh off the animal using its teeth, steadying it with its paws. Tigers live alone and aggressively territories to keep their rivals away. They are powerful nocturnal hunters that travel many miles to find buffalo, deer, wild pigs, and other large mammals. Tigers use their distinctive coats as camouflage (no two have exactly the same scent-mark large stripes). They lie in wait and creep close enough to attack their victims with a quick spring and a fatal pounce. A hungry tiger can eat as much as 60 pounds (27 kilograms) in one night, though they usually eat less.
Save Bengal Tigers now (They are endangered) There were eight tiger subspecies at one time, but three became extinct during the 20th century. Over the last 100 years, hunting and forest destruction have reduced tiger populations from hundreds of thousands of animals to perhaps fewer than 2,500. Tigers are hunted as trophies, and also for body parts that are used in traditional Chinese medicine. All five remaining tiger subspecies are endangered, and many protection programs are in place.
