• Values of tigers
                Reality of Tigers
• Only a year ago there were calculated to be 24 tigers in the
  park, one of India’s 27 tiger reserves.
• A century ago, India had about 40,000 tigers. By 1988, as a
  result of extensive hunting and poaching, there were just
  4,500 left. Now the true figure is probably 1,000.
• Panna, located near Khajuraho, is the second reserve in which
  there are now no tigers. Sariska National Park in Rajasthan
  lost all its tigers in 2005.
• The decline is said to be largely down to poachers serving an
  insatiable demand for tiger bones, claws and skin in China,
  Taiwan and Korea, where they are used in traditional
  medicine. Other factors include electric fences erected by
  farmers, illegal logging and fights between male tigers over
  diminishing territory.
              Reality of Tigers


• Just 1,000 tigers left in India
• The Indian government admitted that
  nobody has seen a Royal Bengal tiger in
  Panna National Park since January.

Range of Tigers
           Types of tigers

• Bengal tiger
• The Bengal tiger, or Royal Bengal tiger , equals a race
  of tiger mainly obtained in India and Bangladesh.
  They are also obtained in regions of Nepal, Bhutan,
  Myanmar and south Tibet. The Bengal tiger is among
  the biggest and the just about a lot of of the tiger
  race, with approximately 1,411 wild tigers being
  accounted by the Government of India's National
  Tiger Conservation Authority.
                  Bali tiger
• Bali tiger
• The Bali tiger , harimau Bali in Indonesian, or
  adverted to as samong in primitive Balinese
  words, is an nonexistent race of tiger
  ascertained entirely on the little Indonesian
  island of Bali. This was among ternary race of
  tiger discovered in Indonesia along with the
  Javan tiger (as well perhaps extinct) and
  Sumatran tiger (critically jeopardized
                Indochinese tiger

• Indochinese tiger
• The Indochinese tiger or Corbett's tiger comprises a
  race of tiger discovered in Cambodia, Laos, Burma,
  Thailand, and Vietnam. Tigers in peninsular Malaysia,
  at one time categorised as Indochinese, have lately
  been reclassified as a separated race, Malayan tiger
  Panthera tigris jacksoni. The "Corbett's" name roots
  from the scientific bring up of the subspecies,
  Panthera tigris corbetti, which successively is called
  in respect of Jim Corbett.
             Malayan tiger


• The Malayan tiger , discovered in the
  southern and primal parts of the Malay
  Peninsula, until 2004 wasn't viewed a race in
  its own right. The newly categorization
  happened after a study by Luo S-J et al. from
  the Laboratory of Genomic Diversity, part of
  the U.S. National Cancer Institute.
               White tigers
• There's a familiar mutation that develops the white tigers,
  technically called chinchilla albinistic,a creature which is
  scarce in the wild, but widely covered in zoos due to its fame.
  Upbringing of white tigers will frequently contribute to
  inbreeding . Numerous openings have come about in white
  and orange tiger pairing in an effort to rectify the issue, often
  mix race in the way. Such inbreeding has resulted to white
  tigers bearing a heavier odds of being born with physical
  flaws, such as cleft palates and scoliosis (curvature of the
  spine). Moreover, white tigers are inclined in acquiring
  crossed eyes . Even evidently sound white tigers mostly don't
  live as long as their orange counterparts
                   Sumatran tiger
• Sumatran tiger
• Male Sumatran tigers average 204 cm long from head to tail
  and weigh approximately 136 kg. Females average out 198 cm
  long and count approximately 91 kg. Its stripes are thinner
  than remaining race of tigers' stripes, and it has a more
  whiskered and maned show, particularly the males. Its slim
  size makes it lighter to move through heavy rainforests. It has
  netting between The Sumatran tiger is the youngest of all
  existing tiger race. its toes that, when spread, makes
  Sumatran tigers very fast swimmers. It's been acknowledged
  to drive hooved prey into the water, particularly if the prey
  beast is a slow swimmer.
  Todays positiion of tiger
The illegal poaching of tigers for
 their parts and destruction of
 their habitat through destruction
 and buffer zone
 encroachment are the biggest
 challenges faced in the fight to
 save our Tigers.
