I think tigers are a fascinating specie. They are really pretty and wild. I did not know about tigers that much so I decided to investigate. This are some of the most interesting facts that i found about tigers.
1. A tiger's stripes are like fingerprints - no two are alike. In fact the stripes' pattern is often used to identify individual tigers in the wild.
2. Tigers are highly ferocious and unlike the laid back male lion, it's never wise to turn your back to a tiger even in captivity. Even seasoned zoo keepers report tigers assume a stalking position and prepare to strike when they turn their back to them in the cage.
3. A tigers canines ( Sharp Teeth) can reach up to four inches long.
4. They can be eleven feet in length and they can weight up to 660 pounds.5. The name ´Tiger´ is taken from the Greek word Tigris, a derivative of the Persian word for arrow, referring to the animals great speed.
