This profile photo shows the beautiful Bengal Tiger eye close up. Explore the incredible details in his eye with the beautiful fur pattern on the face. When this majestic tiger passed our vehicle, I was able to take this close up photo of his eye. Bengal tigers are the largest animals in the big cat family in the world. However, African lions come close to the size of the tigers. Due to poaching and habitats decline, these wild animals are indeed an endangered species.

Bengal Tiger Eye

Bengal tiger eyes have binocular vision to judge the distance to their prey. During the day, they can see nearly as much as humans. That is quite impressive compared to other animals. It is also not necessary for their purpose. To see three-dimensional perception and depth perception is the primary function. Tigers mainly hunt during the night due to their excellent night vision. They see about six times better as humans at night. As you see in this photograph, the round pupil allows a maximum of light to enter the eye at night. During the day, they as well see colors. Not entirely as we humans do, but enough.

Bengal tigers, Panthera tigris, are on the IUCN list as endangered species.
