African Tiger

Adaptation, Critical Info

Tigers have good vision during day and night. During the night, tigers have 6 times of a better vision compared to humans. However, during the day, their vision is the same as humans but not as detailed. Tigers do not communicate until they mate. They are usually alone until they mate, and when they do, they use their sense of smell to communicate.

People are ruining forests in South Africa and Asia, which means the tigers will have no homes. Their habitats get destroyed by human activities (cutting down trees and ruining wildlife around the forests). Tigers hunt many prey, and humans are too scared to compete for space. World Wild Fund (for nature), or WWF, is protecting and connecting tiger habitats by monitoring tigers and their prey.
