Bengal Tiger: The Bengal tiger is a large, striped cat from India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, and Burma. It lives in a variety of habitats, including rainforests and dense grasslands. The Bengal tiger can live to about 18 years in captivity, and probably a few years less in the wild. Bengal tigers are mostly solitary, but sometimes travel in groups of 3 or 4. These tigers are in danger of extinction due to over-hunting by poachers.


The Bengal tiger has the largest population of all the tiger breeds at approximatley 2,500 individuals in the wild. Most of these tigers inhabit Bangladesh and India. These tigers are smaller than the Siberian tiger. They weigh up to 550 lbs. Like the Siberian tiger, the Bengal is also victim to human conflict and habitat loss which is why they also remain on the endangered species list.
