A Bengal Tiger's Food Chain

It will help you understand the food chain of the Bengal Tiger. It has the sun as an energy source, the plant as a producer, the rabbit as a herbivore, the bear as a 1st level carnivore, the Bengal tiger as a 2nd level carnivore, and the mushroom as a decomposer to top the whole chain off.

A Bengal Tiger's Biotic and Abiotic Factors

Biotic factors: The prey it eats and the grass and tall trees that are scattered around its habitat.

Abiotic factors: The rocks around its habitat, the water it drinks, the air it breathes, and the sunlight high above.

The Bengal Tiger's ecosystem

This subspecies of tiger lives in forests and woodlands; anywhere where there are lots of trees. It can be found in India and Southeast Asia. It uses everything in this environment to be able to survive.

Predicting changes in the Bengal tiger's ecosystem

If the Bengal tiger's population were to decrease, it would create an unbalanced ecosystem by making its prey's population increase over a desired amount. Overpopulation would also create an unbalanced ecosystem, but by making its prey's population decrease instead of increase. However, this would take a long time because their population is already very low.

Should we hunt it or not?

In my opinion, we should NOT hunt the Bengal tiger. It's population is already very low (due to hunting) and if we continue to hunt it, it could soon become extinct. As said in the previous paragraph, the ecosystem would become unbalanced if they are hunted. They are already in the endangered zone, and don't deserve to die out.
