Bengal Tiger

This is my favorite animal to visit at the Tallahassee Museum, a young male Bengal Tiger. He is quite the cat, my ferocious furry feline.

Tigers are the largest members of the cat family and are known for their massive power and strength.

Bengal Tigers live in India and are sometimes called “Indian tigers.” They are the most common tiger and comprise about half of all wild tigers. Over many centuries they have become an important part of Indian tradition and lore.

Female Bengal Tigers give birth to litters of two to six cubs, which they raise with little or no help from the male. Cubs are not able to hunt until they are 18 months old and remain with their mothers for two to three years, when they leave to find their own territory.

Tigers use their beautiful, distinctive coats as camouflage. Did you know that no two tigers have exactly the same stripes?

  1. Bengal tigers are simply magnificent….I am very lucky to have seen them in the wild…I actually took part in Tiger counting exercises (Tiger census) in Namdapha Tiger reserve (Virgin Forests) and I do not have the words to describe the experience!!!


  2. Beautiful pictures, agree with janalinesmalman about being in captivity. The chain link fence gives them an eerie quality, especially against the beautiful light. Across the world we have a real obsession with tigers. My friend wrote a blog about tiger imagery, apparently we dream about them quite a lot. Check it out if you’re interested:
