A LITTLE ABOUT TIGERS
Tigers, specifically Siberian Tigers, are the biggest cats in the world and the third-largest land carnivore, next to brown bears and polar bears. One can weigh as heavy as 660 pounds! Despite their massive size and fierce nature, the “aww factor” remains. People love how beautiful and at the same time ferocious tigers are. Baby tigers, especially, will always be cute and huggable!
Tigers live in a vast range of habitats, including swamps, grasslands, and rain forests. Smaller wild tigers can be found in Asia (in India, Nepal, and Indonesia), but much bigger ones live in colder areas like Northeastern China and Eastern Russia. They primarily eat deer, water buffalo, and antelope. Aging or injured tigers in search of easy-to-catch prey are known to attack domestic cattle and sometimes even people.
Tigers are powerful feline giants loved for their poise and ferocity. Their influence, though, goes beyond their reputation in the animal kingdom. These animals symbolize luxury, authority, and royalty. They are also seen as a representation of revitalizing energy and supremacy. In terms of awareness and spirituality, considering a tiger as a spirit animal is all about keeping a close eye on the prize.
Tigers are the only big cat species that are completely striped. Just like human fingerprints, all stripe patterns are unique to each one of them. Stripe density varies per species and ranges from light brown to black. For example, a Sumatran Tiger’s stripes appear closer together than those of any other subspecies.
Tigers are on top of the food chain and therefore don’t have natural predators. They fight with other big animals from time to time, like elephants and bears, that’s it. But just like any other creature, they are not without enemies. Their number one rival? Humans! Humans are the most dangerous threat to these majestic creatures.
Several factors contribute to this, but most are by-products of human greed, including the illegal trade of tiger parts, poaching, and loss of habitat. Only an estimated 3,900 tigers remain in the wild. In Southeast Asia and other parts of the world, they are in crisis and are continuously declining in number.
Let us help save tigers by spreading the word about their current situation. They are an integral part of our ecosystem, so by protecting them, we are also protecting ourselves. I suggest using tigers as an inspiration for your artistic efforts. Work on tiger coloring pages, and show people how amazing they are and that they are worth saving. Coloring can help both children and adults turn their heads to things that matter.
