The tiger (Panthera tigris) is a member of the Felidae family; the largest and the most powerful of the four "big cats" in the genus Panthera.[3] Native to much of eastern and southern Asia, the tiger is an apex predator and an obligate carnivore. Reaching up to 4 metres (13 ft) in total length and weighing up to 300 kilograms (660 pounds), the larger tiger subspecies are comparable in size to the biggest extinct felids.[4][5] Aside from their great bulk and power, their most recognizable feature is the pattern of dark vertical stripes that overlays near-white to reddish-orange fur, with lighter underparts. The largest subspecies of tiger is the Siberian tiger.

Highly adaptable, tigers range from the Siberian taiga, to open grasslands, to tropical mangrove swamps. They are territorial and generally solitary animals, often requiring large contiguous areas of habitat that support their prey demands. This, coupled with the fact that they are endemic to some of the more densely populated places on earth, has caused significant conflicts with humans. Of the nine subspecies of modern tiger, three are extinct and the remaining six are classified as endangered, some critically so. The primary direct causes are habitat destruction and fragmentation, and hunting. Their historical range, which once reached from Mesopotamia and the Caucasus through most of South and East Asia, has been radically reduced. While all surviving species are under formal protection, poaching, habitat destruction and inbreeding depression continue to be threats.

Nonetheless, tigers are among the most recognizable and popular of the world's charismatic megafauna. They have featured prominently in ancient mythology and folklore, and continue to be depicted in modern films and literature. Tigers appear on many flags and coats of arms, as mascots for sporting teams, and as the national animal of several Asian nations.

A beautiful shot would be instead a pistol shot to blowup that tiger's brains. Such animals are dangerous, cruel and coward, their lives are useless.

Hey guys!!!! do you like lions, tigers, cheetahs, and or many other big cats.

If so then i have some bad news they're all dying rapidly and if we don't do something about it they're going to go extinct!!!! Right now there are are less than 2000 lions out there, now i know what your think holy crap thats a ton of lions, sure that'd be a lot if it were in one city or even a state, but it's not thats all over the world. There are less tigers in the wild than in captivity. That is horrible.

Do you want that, because i sure as hell don't we need to all get together and cause an UPROAR for them. National geographic is starting a program to help save them. There is a few ways now i know paying money is kinda hard for people, and yes that is a way to help so don't be stingy. There is also other ways like watching a youtube video, because for every view the lions get 10 cents now that doesn't sound like a lot but in actual if there is 20000 views than they get 20000 dollars. so get to watching. another way is to just go on your favorite social network and cause some commotion.

And if you have a tumblr than you should follow me because i made one just for the occasion.

here's some links

I just saw this yesterday, and I ordered it as a 10 x 15 print instantly without hesitation. Stunning photo, my gf absolutely loves tigers and I'm sure she'll love this, unless her mother kills me from getting her so much tiger stuff, then she won't be so happy hahaha.

You've put this up as stock image for free use, right? So please remove the watermark, it's not good to use as a stock image with the dA-logo on it.
