With Their Outrageous Courage And Strength, Bengal Tigers Rule The Roost In The Indian Subcontinent

The Bengal tiger has acquired the status of being the national animal of Bangladesh by  virtue of it being strong and courageous. It is a subspecies of tiger species found  in the Indian sub-continent. It is the second largest among all tigers in the world. Its coat is yellow or light orange in color. There are black or dark brown stripes on it.

Black stripes are to be found in case of white tigers, which are white in color. A black coat is accompanied by light-colored stripes in case of black tigers. The Bengal tiger is known for its ability at stalking and haunting its prey. It has a diet of wild animals like deer and wild boar. It can even devour cattle and goats if it comes across some.

The number of Bengal tigers found in mangrove swamps, dense forests and jungles is more than the number of any other member of the tiger species. It is a common sight in the jungles of India, Bangladesh and Nepal. It is also to be found in the jungles of Bhutan.

Its habitat has been reduced and destroyed by man's consistent march towards urbanization. It has no known natural enemy, although man has been hunting the Bengal tiger incessantly for decades.

A female Bengal tiger can give birth to five cubs after a gestation period that spans over 3-4 months. The newborn cubs are usually helpless and blind. They are bred on their mother's milk till they are about 2 months old.  The cubs  hang on to their mother for the first 18 months of their existence before they can lead an independent life.
