Like most of the members of the cat family, the tiger is an ambush hunter, attacking from cover, and then launching a sprinting attack of up to 70km/h. It uses its massive forepaws and claws to immobilize its prey, and it uses its powerful bite to suffocate it as a killing blow.
The tiger is found throughout east and south-east Asia, from India to Siberia. However, it is a very rare and endangered animal, and is extinct in parts of its former range.
Tiger vs Wild Boar Edit
In the jungle of Sumatra a female Sumatran tiger came towards a male Wild boar feeding on a dead Malayan tapir. The tiger leaped towards the peccary, knocked him down and sank her jaws into the boar's back leg leaving a terrible wound. The boar grunted and tried to dig his tusks into her beautiful coat but he couldn't. The tiger pounced onto the boar and sank her teeth deeply into his neck, The boar became exhausted to fight back and was killed. The Sumatran tiger then ran off straight deeper into the jungle without even turning her head back
