What do tigers look like?


The most distinctive part of a tiger is its coloring, which is golden orange with black stripes. Tigers who live the farthest north tend to be lighter orange than those in southern areas.

Typically, these big cats also have white on their throats and bellies. The backs of their ears have white spots that resemble eyes, which tricks prey into thinking that they are being watched. The largest species of tiger, Siberian, grows to be about 14 feet long, and over 3 feet of that is just the tail. Adults weight about 650 pounds. Others species are typically only one-third that size. Tigers are excellent jumpers because their back legs are longer and stronger than those in the front. They can cover over 32 feet in one pounce.
