The tiger is the largest species among the Felidae and classified in the genus Panthera. It is most recognizable for its dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside. It is an apex predator, primarily preying on ungulates such as deer and wild boar, although will occasionally hunt buffalo and have been reported to kill, and at times eat other predators in their ecosystems such as bears, leopards, and crocodiles. Much like leopards, they’re highly adaptable felids, ranging from many habitats including rainforests, temperate forests, grasslands, wetlands, and taigas. Tigers are the excellent swimmers. Tigers are the real kings of the jungle in Asian cultures.
