Bengal tigers – information

These predators live, as a rule, one by one. But sometimes, they gather in a few groups (3 to 4 individuals) to accomplish any goal. Each male has its own territory, which is fiercely guarded: by voice and by force. The roar of the Bengal tiger, according to the researchers, can be heard for 3 kilometers!

By way of life, Bengal tigers are nocturnal animals. During the day, these predators prefer to rest and gain strength, and with the onset of twilight go hunting. Strong, fast and agile, Bengal tigers rarely return home without production. The dead victim is a formidable and powerful predator – a Bengal tiger is able to drag about 500 meters to hide it in the grass, for a future meal.

Despite their impressive size, the Bengal tigers climb to the trees with ease and climb the branches. They are also excellent swimmers: they can easily catch a prey that has receded into the water. But with regard to flexibility, as, for example, in leopards, the Bengal tigers do not.

In the manner of food, all Bengal tigers are predators who eat meat of other animals: wild boars, deer, antelope, buffalo, hares, peacocks, monkeys. In rare cases, they hunt elephants and rhinoceroses. Sometimes they can eat carrion. The selected victim, Bengal tigers, is killed by strangulation or fracture of the spine.

Bengal tigers can eat for future use: that is, they can consume up to 30 kilograms of meat at one time, and then do without food for about three weeks! There are cases of attacks of Bengal tigers on people. In the event of a meeting with this predator, a person is unlikely to have a chance to escape.
