Tigers and Their Behavior.

How Tigers Find Their Food

First the tiger stalks its Prey, getting closer and closer as its victim doesn't realize it. When the tiger feels its the right time it attacks its prey sinking its canine teeth into the animal, killing it.

Hibernation, Migration, or Estivation?

Tigers don't estivate, migrate, or hibernate because they usually live in the jungle where it is always warm. Tigers that live in colder climates they usually have a thicker coat.

Communication

Tigers can communicate in different ways they use smell the mark their ranges, they roar to tell others to stay away they can fight too. Female tigers use scent markings to attract a mate. They communicate with body language.

Independence

Tigers may live independent lives. Unlike lions forming "Prides", tigers live alone. Execept for a mother and her cub.

Saber Tooth Tiger.

  • One of my personal favorites The Smilodon also known as The Saber Tooth Tiger. The Saber Tooth tiger was the first known of it's kind it's also extinct, I personally think they should start cloning them. It's canines are almost 1 foot long they are also easily broken. Saber Tooth tigers ponce on their prey and sink their teeth in the side of it's neck. Saber tooth tigers even hunted in packs. They almost weighed a ton, largest species of tiger that has ever lived. Saber tooth tigers mainly ate herbivores. Actually they are related but not closely related to tigers. In size Smilodon Gracilis was intermediate to Smilodon Fatalis and Smilodon Populator. Saber tooth tigers became extinct in 10,000 B.C they thought Prehistoric humans might have been the reason for their extinction. They could've became extincy from change in environment. Also when they became extinct so did 10 other species is this a coincidence I think not.
