Abstract:

Discussion of tiger behavior, breeding patterns, family life, eating habits and communication. Also addresses religious significance of tigers, shrinking habitat, tiger attacks, conservation efforts and how and where to observe tigers in the wild. A rare look at a magnificent predator. Supple, powerful, long, lean and intense, tigers are one of the world's most beautiful predators. Though fierce and efficient, an estimated 5,000 tigers are all that survive in the wild. Tigers provide a thorough understanding of this remarkable animal based on firsthand observations. Using stunning photography and maps, the book reveals how shrinking habitats and decreasing food supplies are forcing tigers to live in unnaturally high densities, often with deadly results. Tigers draw on the latest research and extensive field experience to deal with every aspect of its behavior: Social structures- Breeding patterns and family life- Martial arts--like hunting tactics- Dietary favorites and oddities- Communication and interaction. Two hundred and fifty photographs capture tigers in range of activities: Devouring prey in the jungle, at play with cubs, warding off scavengers, at rest and on the prowl. Fascinating commentary offers intriguing new ideas about supporting this critically endangered animal, a first step in ensuring that they never die out.
