Tiger

Behaviour: Tigers are ordinarily solitary and independent in the wild except in mating time. However, the basic social unit is mother and young. In the wild state, both male and female demarcate their territories. The home range can be maintained by a variety of methods. One such method is that urine which is mixed with anal gland secretions is sprayed onto trees, bushes and rocks along the trails. They also mark scrapes on the ground and tree trunks. The black tarry colour faeces is left in conspicuous places. They are good swimmers. Unlike leopards, the tigers seldom try to climb trees. Male tigers are reported to kill smaller cubs when encounter with them. The mother secretes her newborn cubs in a den normally a cave or rock overhang, among dense reeds and bushes. In the wild tigers and leopards are said to avoid each other. Tigers hunt alone and their hunting technique is unique. They usually attack from the sides or from the rears. A prey is killed by grabbing the head between forepaws and twisting its neck with violent jerk and finally a biting to the throat or neck. The death is most likely caused by suffocation as well as snapping of the spinal cord. It often drags its dead prey into cover in the vicinity of water in the wild. A tiger drinks frequently during meal. During summer months, they spend much of the day time resting near water bodies and occasionally lie or stand in water for cooling. Sometimes, tigers become man eaters. The Bengal tigers in Sundarban areas of West Bengal are known to be human flesh eaters. The reasons for man eaters are manifold. • Some tigers are very old or they get disabled or wounded and thereby unable to stalk and kill their natural preys. When their canine teeth are broken, they are also tempted to attack human beings. • When tigers killed a man inadvertently, tasted the meat and apparently found it to their liking. There might be the other reason that tigers first scavenged on unburied human corpses and later transferring their attention to living prey. • The availability of natural preys in the habitats. • The destruction of habitats may also be an important factor for tiger to be turned into a man eater. The scarcity of freshwater resource in Sundarban areas is believed to be one of the reasons for development of this habit.
Life span: Tigers have been known to live for about 15 years in the wild, while in captivity the life span has been reported more than 20 years.
