Tigers are the world's largest cats, weighing about 450 pounds, on average. What are your thoughts on these powerful felines?

they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called 'Rabbi' by others.

Among wild tigers, Bengal tigers are the biggest! In other words, the biggest Bengal tigers in the wild are slightly bigger than their Siberian counterparts. It appears that the Siberian cats being the biggest among the Tiger species is just based on non-wild specimens.

Why doesn't India and Africa do a friendly tiger and lion exchange? India sends 30 tigers to Africa and vice versa. I want to see the in the wild of different countries.

I believe the webbed feet is only applicable to Sumatran Tigers. And in present day, only captive Siberian Tigers outgrow Bengal Tigers. Wild Bengal Tigers are bigger than Siberian Tigers in recent records.

It's just so sad. Why kill these beautiful creatures? Just leave them alone, look at them from afar but don't interfere with their way of life. Just let them be.

NG, question.. @1:10.. Is the Tiger walk real? It seems the Lion's is fabricated / animated from a picture. If it is real, I wonder how you got it to loop so perfectly.

其实真觉得挺可惜的,中国本来是老虎最主要的栖息地之一,现在野生老虎却少的可怜。记得几年前去东北旅游,听当地的司机说刚本来林子里老虎很多。刚改革开放的时候,没人管,每天都有人带着猎枪去林子里打老虎,拿虎皮。打的现在林子都干干净净得了。 作孽啊

I love Tigers and want to help them survive and raise thier numbers. Tigers are the most incredible predator on earth and its mankinds duty to save them. We put them in tthis terrible critically endangered status. There are almost no Siberian Tigers and they are our largest predator. China and thier demand for tiger parts because of thier backwards ways and beliefs in medicine are a major problem and China must be dealt with

We have to protect all of our wild animals not just Tigers from dying out , endangered species before there won’t be enough animals in the American and world zoos and in the wild

Wrong the tiger is a little heavier on average because of its belly fat ,that is clearly visible when looking at the to ,plus the lion is bigger at the front end of the body.

This video leads me to ask something: If tigers are the real kings of the jungle in life, then why are lions portrayed as such in movies and cartoons like Disney’s The Lion King and it’s Golden Films knockoff version “The Jungle King” (which had tigers but portrayed them as power hungry and Napoleonic villains i.e. Raj), and why is there not a movie called “The Tiger King?”

Tigers didn't come from Africa. Not everything in life came from Adfrica, stop this stupid Western science thinking. It is still theory. Scientists are still changing their mind on everything everyday about who we are and where we came from?

More than 90% of the species that ever lived on this planet are GONE ! They are extinct. And that's what will happen to most of the species that are here today. HUMANS DESTROY NATURE ?? Not really. Because we are the part of nature as well. (We're just another species)
Ashutosh Kumar (21 days ago)
At least a double digit IQ brain like me doesn't contradict his own statements. On one hand you don't think humans destroy nature (which is totally false), on the other when I pointed out how fast animals are dying because of humans, your moronic brain froze yp because you couldn't find a link between them.
Prathmesh Deshmukh (1 month ago)
+Ashutosh Kumar and just so your double digit IQ brain can comprehend, I NEVER mentioned anything about the RATE of extinction. You must be one of those dumbest kids in the class.
Ashutosh Kumar (1 month ago)
They don't disappear at this fast rate, moron. That is the issue. Not that things go extinct, but things going extinct so quickly. It took dinosaurs hundreds of thousands of years to go extinct, not 100 years.

Current wild Bengal Tigers are larger than wild Siberian Tigers. Siberian Tigers have decreased in size due to poaching. Wild Bengal Tigers are regularly reaching 250+kgs whilst wild Siberians are averaging at around 230.
