A Bengal Tiger portrait of its face. An up-close and personal photograph of one of the most magnificent cats in the world. It is photographed through the bushes and blurry leaves. Every detail of the face is noticeable. As a result, you can see the amber eyes, every hair on its face, and its rosy pink nose. That Bengal Tiger has Anette in his eyes.

Bengal Tigers are solitary cats. They mark their territory by spraying trees and rocks with a combination of urine and musk. Both male and female Tigers are incredibly territorial. However, when food is scarce and conditions are harsh, they will cross over territories in search of food. The only social interactions between these animals are during courtship, breeding, and parental care. Instead of having a mating season, they mate when they please. But most cubs are born between the months of December-April. Once copulation occurs, the gestation period lasts around 104-106 days. Sometimes it can last for fewer or more days.

Bengal Tiger, Panthera Tigris, is on the IUCN list as critically endangered.
