The tiger is the biggest cat in the world. They love to swim, unlike most cats.  They grow thick, long, reddish, orange coats with black stripes, and white underbellies. There were once 9 species of tigers: Bengal, Siberian, Indochinese, South Chinese, Sumatran, Malayan, Javan, Caspian, and Bali. Sadly, the last three of these tigers are now extinct. Tigers are very rare. There are about 4,500 living in the wild! That may seem a lot but it is not.

Tigers mainly eat ambar deer , wild pigs, water buffalo, and antelope. As you can see tigers are carnivores.

Tigers can be white or orange. White tigers live in snowy biomes, and the orange tigers live in forests and other biomes.

Tigers are my favorite animal because they are pretty and strong.
