Tigers are meat eaters. That means they have to hunt to survive.
Can you remember these 6 things that help make tigers such good hunters?
1 Tigers’ big, strong bodies are built for hunting.
2 Big eyes and good eyesight help tigers hunt at night, when most of their “food” is awake!
3 Long tails help tigers “steer” when they are in mid-leap!
4 Tigers’ large, pointed canines grab and hold meat, while their sharp rear teeth cut it into
5 Stripes allow tigers to stay hidden in leaves and branches . . .until they are ready to pounce!
6 Tigers’ paws are padded so they can hunt quietly—and big so they can grab onto prey.
