We know it’s a tiger when we see a coat of red-orange with dark stripes. Tiger is the largest wild cat in the world. The big cat's tail is 3 feet long.
The tiger hunts alone. Its prey are deer and antelope. Tigers wait until dark to hunt. The cat eats until it's full, and then covers the prey with leaves and dirt. The tiger comes back to feed some more when it is hungry.
Unlike most animals in the cat family, tigers seem to like water and swim well.
