The Royal Bengal Tiger walks through the forest in Ranthambore National Park, India. The predator’s mouth is hanging open slightly. Furthermore, you can observe its large canines and get a peak of its pink tongue. As the Tiger passed the tree on the right, it steps over a fallen branch lying on the floor.

Bengal Tigers possess enormous canines out of every living cat. They can eat up to 40 kilograms / 88 pounds of meat in a single meal. However, they usually eat less than that. Generally, they hunt medium-large prey. Their primary diet being guar, water buffalo, chital, deer, and wild boars. On occasion, they will also consume small prey such as porcupine and rabbits.

When attacking, they will stalk silently behind the animal and strike with a final blow using its retractable claws or bite to the neck. They proceed to drag the animal several meters to find a safe place to consume it. Amazingly, they can even transport their kill through water if need be.

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

      Thank you very much, Hanneke. That Bengal Tiger came up to our vehicle and passed us. These animals are indeed larger than an African lion is.
      Cheers Anette
