Bengal Tiger - 270829


One of the largest types of tiger.

The Bengal tiger inhabits the grasslands, temperate forests and mangrove forests of India, China, Bangladesh, Nepal, Myanmar and Bhutan. Despite their small population size, Bengal tigers are believed to be the most numerous tiger subspecies.

History: Sadly, Bengal tiger numbers have dropped dramatically over the last century. They are currently classified as an endangered species by the IUCN, and suffer dramatically from habitat loss and high levels of illegal poaching.
