Tigers are pretty cool animals if I say so myself. Even though they are not the ¨king of the jungle¨ they are still interesting animals. Tiger´s eat mostly ambar deer, wild pigs, water buffalo, and antelope. Since people hunt tigers for their fur there are only an estimated total of 3,000- 4,500 in the wild. 3 out of 9 kinds of the tiger in the world are extinct. Those kinds of tigers are the Caspian tiger, Javan tiger, and the Bali Tiger, but the Southern Chinese tiger is extinct in the wild. But some tigers are close to being extinct, like the Siberian tiger and the Sumatran Tiger.

Tigers are know to have been shot, bleed out, and die and still be standing up. Did you know that tigers are actually nicer than lions.

A backhand from a tiger can kill you, yikes! While tigers usually use theur massive teath to kill their victims, they will also use the back of their hand.
