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 bite-sized pieces.
  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.
