How much do you know about tigers?

Get tigers for kids. This list has tiger information from beautiful tiger pictures to amazing tiger facts.

  • Tigers are the largest wild cats in the world. Adults can weigh up to 363kg – that’s about the same as ten ten year olds! – and measure up to 3.3m!
  • Tigers are carnivores, eating only meat. They mainly feed on large mammals such as deer, wild pigs, antelope and buffalo.
  • Tigers are solitary hunters, and generally search for food alone at night. They quietly stalk their prey until they are close enough to pounce – then they kill their victim with a bite to the neck or back of the head. Ouch!
  • Unlike most members of the cat family, tigers like water. They are good swimmers and often cool off in pools or streams.
  • When a tiger wants to be heard, you’ll know about it, gang – because their roar can be heard as far as three kilometres away.
  • They may be big and heavy, but tigers are by no means slow movers. In fact, at full speed they can reach up to 65km/h!

  • These fierce felines have walked the earth for a long time. Fossil remains of tigers found in parts of China are believed to be 2 million years old. Yikes!
  • Tigers are carnivores. They are quiet, patient hunters with large powerful paws and teeth to help them catch and eat their prey. Some of their favorite meals include pigs, deer, rhinoceroses, and even small elephants.
  • Tigers hunt for their food, but they are also hunted by humans for their valuable fur and body parts. Because of this, tiger researches think there may only be 3,500 tigers left in the world. This makes them an endangered species.
