Tigers are the largest cat on earth. Heavily-muscled forelimbs, retractable claws, powerful jaws, sharp teeth and acute senses make them awesome hunters.
Tiger populations are on the brink of extinction in many countries in south east Asia and are threatened by habitat loss. Throughout their range tigers find themselves in conflict with farmers that persecute them for killing their livestock.
Tigers are exploited in tiger farms due to demand for skins as luxury rugs, and for their bones which are used to make traditional medicines.
