Tigers are the largest living cats in the world, with the Sumatran Tiger being the smallest of the six tiger subspecies.
A lions roar can be heard from as far as eight kilometres away.
The pattern of a tiger’s stripes is unique to each animal, just like fingerprints are to humans. The stripes are found on a tiger’s skin and, if shaved, its distinctive pattern would remain.
