Save Tiger : Save Tiger Tiger : Tiger The tiger (Panthera tigris) is a member of the Felidae family and the largest of the four "big cats" in the genus Panthera.  Native to much of eastern and southern Asia, the tiger is an apex predator and an obligate carnivore. Reaching up to 3.3 metres (11 ft) in total length, weighing up to 300 kilograms (660 pounds), and having canines up to 4 inches. Aside from their great bulk and power, their most recognizable feature is a pattern of dark vertical stripes that overlays near-white to reddish-orange fur, with lighter underpants. 6 interesting facts about tiger : 6 interesting facts about tiger Most tigers have more than 100 stripes, and no two tigers have the same stripes. A tiger marks its territory by spraying trees and bushes (contained inside the territory) with its urine, and also leaves deep scratches on tree trunks. One averaged sized tiger can eat up to 60 pounds of meat at a single time! A tiger’s canine teeth can grow up to three inches long, easily capable of crunching through the spine of any creature on Earth: like a warm knife through butter. A tiger eats around six kilos of meat per day, but can go as long as a week without a meal. A tiger’s saliva is antiseptic, and comes handy when a tiger cleans its wounds.
