Appearance

The tiger has black, orange, and white stripes. Tigers have claws. Tigers have the largest canine teeth of any land-based carnivores.

Diet

Tigers are meat eaters (carnivores). Their prey includes small- to medium-sized mammals. The way tigers kill is to surprise the animal from behind and bite its neck; killing it. Tigers can eat as much as 40 pounds of meat in one sitting. They can go for days at a time without eating.
