A Bengal Tiger portrait of its face and eyes. An up-close and personal photograph of one of the most magnificent wild cats in the world. I photographed it through the bushes and blurry leaves. Every detail of the front of the face and eyes is noticeable. As a result, you can see the amber eyes of the tiger, every hair on its face, and its rosy pink nose. In this portrait of the Bengal tiger, he has his eyes locked on the wildlife photographer. Explore more images of tigers.

Solitary Tigers

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 wild animals are during courtship, breeding, and parental care. Instead of having a mating season, they mate when they please. But most tiger 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 a critically endangered species.
