A tiger sleeps around sixteen hours a day.
The tail gives the tiger extra balance when running and it also used to communicate to other tigers.
Tiger cubs are blind at birth.
The lifespan of a tiger is 10-15 years in the wild and 20 years in captivity. A tiger's roar can be heard two or three km away.
A tiger can go two to three days without eating and can spend eighteen hours of sleeping.
Adult tigers can eat up to 40kg of food at one sitting. After a big kill, they may not eat again for a week or two.
