Tigers for Silver Stream!

Thanks to margan3 for the picture from

Silver Stream is right! Tigers are so amazing. Did you know that they have stripes for camouflage and that no two tigers have the same markings on their fur? Tiger's tails are three to four feet long and help them to balance when they make a sharp turn while running. I think the funniest thing about tigers is that their paw prints are called pug marks. Hee hee.
Tigers eat as much as 40 pounds of meat in one sitting. Whoa! But if they eat a lot in one sitting they will not eat for a few days.
Tiger's have about 2-3 cubs at a time. They are born blind and weigh about 2 pounds each. It takes about 18 months until they are ready to make their first kill.
Tigers live all over Asia and are an endangered species. This is because people kill them for their fur and also because their habitats (a habitat is the place where they live) are being ruined by people who take the trees and food away that surround their homes.
We should do everything we can to help tigers! They are so beautiful and fuzzy. Have any of you ever seen one in real life?

Stay Green! Violet
