Tigers are the top predators in nature, and they are the most superior in the food chain, occupying an important position. There are almost no natural enemies in the wild, and all animals will be afraid of seeing the tiger. The cat family is a very good hunter. It has been developing and evolving on the earth for a long time, and many species are "suppressed".
In the food chain, various animals form natural predator relationships that are formed over tens of thousands of years. They are strictly restrictive to each other. Herbivores have an innate fear of predators, partly because of genetic suppression and partly because of learning. Small animals on the grassland, especially herbivorous animals, need to stand up and run as soon as possible shortly after they are born, because they should always be vigilant against the "attack" of carnivores.
Tigers are solitary carnivores with an extremely strong sense of territorial possession. A tiger will attack other space animals that invade its territory. A sign that a tiger claims a territory is that it distributes its secretions over its territory. These secretions can emit a very strong odor, which to other tigers means that it is invading another tiger's territorial space.
In the wild, tigers often try to avoid conflict when they come into contact with another group of predators. However, male tigers are desperate to defend their territory by aggressively attacking intruders. In a fight, they strike with their powerful claws and sharp teeth. If they can't win, they can usually run away from danger quickly. They can also climb trees or swim to safety.
Tiger has a very good night vision ability. According to the research of zoologists, the tiger's night vision ability is about 6 times that of human beings. The powerful night vision ability makes the tiger hunt easily in the dark, which greatly enhances the competitiveness of the tiger occupying the top of the food chain.
No two tigers have the same markings. No two leaves in the world have exactly the same veins, and no two tigers have exactly the same markings. Markings are to tigers what fingerprints are to humans.
Tigers are known as the "king of the forest", but they do not live only in the forest as many people think. They are highly adaptable and can be found in many countries in Asia, with fewer tigers living in Southeast Asia than in India, Nepal, and Bhutan.
Tigers have lost about 95 percent of their wild habitat to degradation, according to agencies. There are an estimated 3,900 tigers living in the wild, up from 100,000 at the turn of the 20th century. That's a staggering 96 percent decline in tiger numbers over the last century.
Although tigers are endangered in the wild, it is estimated that there are about 8,000 tigers in captivity in East and Southeast Asia; In the United States, the number is about 5,000.
