Sand tiger

Do not think that this tiger lives in the sand. Originally found on the Indonesian island of Bali, the tiger was named Bali Tiger. But nowadays it is very difficult to see this tiger.

Tiger of Java

Java tiger is the costume name of this tiger as it is found on the island of Java in Indonesia. However, like the sand tiger, this tiger is also extinct. After this it became extinct in the first half of the twentieth century. These tigers have been trying to save the zoo for some time. Due to the limited habitat of these tigers and continued hunting, they became extinct and became extinct.

This tiger was quite small in size like the tigers of other equatorial regions. In addition, due to the inherent nature of the hybrids (especially mutations) tigers are also seen outside the familiar appearance.

White tiger

The white tiger is well known in India. There are tigers in different zoos of India. This tiger is known to be a hybrid between the Bengal tiger and the Siberian tiger subspecies. This tiger was first caught from the forest of Dhenkanal.

Some white tigers are dorahin. Now this tiger is not commonly seen in the forest. Because, this tiger has been caught in the forest and taken to the zoo long ago. So these independent white tigers are now beautifying the zoo, not the forest. This tiger is neither too big nor too small in size. Rather it can be called moderate. These tigers prey on a variety of vegetarian animals as food.

Black tiger

Before seeing such tigers, it was thought that the color of the tiger skin turned black as a result of forest fires, not from birth. A few days ago, it was reported that this tiger was seen in the forest of Orissa, India. Subsequent scientific studies have shown that these tigers are black from birth. However, many people compare this tiger with a panther. But this comparison does not apply here. It has been observed that the behavior of this tiger is similar to that of the tiger species. Swadhinacheta is not very big in the form of this black tiger. Rather it can be called moderate. These tigers prey on a variety of vegetarian animals as food.

Royal Bengal Tiger

The handsome tiger found in the Sundarbans region of Bangladesh is known worldwide as the Royal Bengal Tiger. According to the tiger census conducted by the Forest Department of Bangladesh in 2004, there are 385 Royal Bengal Tigers in the Sundarbans. Tigers of this species are commonly found in the Sundarbans of India and elsewhere, in the forests of Nepal and Bhutan. The male tiger in northern India is similar in size to the Siberian tiger, with a maximum head length of 332-376 mm. In northern India and Nepal, the average weight of males is 235 kg and females 140 kg. At present, tests on the weight of different tiger species show that on average, Bengal tigers are larger than Siberian tigers.

The Sundarbans is the last sanctuary of the Royal Bengal Tiger in Bangladesh. The tiger migration is being hampered by the way in which the leafy bushes and trees are declining due to human aggression. There is food shortage in the forest. Thus, the Royal Bengal Tiger is in danger of extinction.

Man-eating tiger

Humans are not the normal food of tigers. Tigers turn into cannibals when they taste the weakness of age, injury, and premature blood. Even after being man-eating, tigers prey on other creatures.

Tiger relationship with humans

People have hunted tigers for self-defense, joy and boasting. Today, tigers are being killed all over Asia. People are destroying forests for their own needs, which is harming the tigers. The cannibalism of tigers is also increasing.
