Panthera tigris tigris
Bengala – Nepal – China
95 – 112 days, 2-4 Puppies for childbirth
The Bengal tiger has become very rare, so much so that nowadays only 4500 individuals exist. It is a solitary feline that has adapted to various climatic conditions provided that there is the presence of prey.
It uses ambush as a hunting technique. It is not a good climber, but a very good swimmer.
Nowadays, the white individuals are found in zoos where they have been reproduced from the last wild individual captured by the Maharaja of Rewa in 1951. They are not albino individuals nor a species of their own, but simply born from parents that both carried the recessive gene for the white color.
