Tigers are a type of animal called a wildcat. Wildcats are in the same family as regular pet cats, but they live in the wild and are much bigger than pet cats. They can be up to 9 feet long!

Most tigers have orange fur with black stripes, but tigers can be lots of different colors and patterns. Every tiger in the world looks different; they all have different stripes and patterns, just like zebras! There are six types of tigers: Bengal tigers, Siberian tigers, Sumatran tigers, Malayan tigers, Indochinese tigers, and South China tigers.

Where Do Tigers Live?

Tigers live in the continent of Asia in tropical rain forests, cold forests, or in mountains. They are some of the only cats that like to be in the water! Tigers like to swim and can be found cooling off in a pond or a stream.

Tigers used to live in more places in Asia, but recently have become endangered. Endangered means that they are at risk of dying off because of hunting and loss of their habitat. It's important to protect tigers so they can continue to live and be safe!
