The excellent Bengal Tiger eyes look straight into the camera in this close up photograph. Being up close and personal with you. You can see the incredible details in the eyes of a tiger, when close enough, of course. Bengal tigers are the largest cats in the big cat family. However, African lions are nearly as tall as tigers. It is indeed an endangered species because of poaching and tiger habitats decline.

Undoubtedly, the fur stripes of Bengal tigers are as unique as human fingerprints. It has the most prolonged canine teeth of all cats, around 12cm / 4 inches long. Bengal tiger eyes cannot see as much detail as we humans can. For their purpose, it is also unnecessary. The primary function is to see three-dimensional perception and depth perception. Therefore, the eyes of a tiger sit in front and not on the sides of their heads. Additionally, they also possess binocular vision, which lets them judge distances from their prey.

Bengal Tiger – India’s National Animal

The national animal of India is, of course, the Indian tiger. Right now the tiger population is about 2226 in the wild. The latest tiger count was in 2016 in India. The source of this statistic is the Indian government. Independent tiger conservation organizations have indeed not confirmed this.

Indeed, a beautiful, fascinating predator.
