                            Tigers
• Tigers belong to the cat family. They can be found in the
  cold, snowy environments of Siberia. Here they have long,
  thick fur to keep them warm. They also live in warm places
  such as jungles in India.
• Tigers do not live in herds or packs like some animals but
  hunt on their own.
• A male tiger is bigger than a female tiger but apart from
  this they look the same. They have orange fur and black
  stripes. The stripes help them to hide in the grass and in the
  trees. Some tigers have white fur but there are not many of
  these in the world.
• Tigers rest in the day and hunt at night. They like to catch
  deer and wild pig but they will eat almost any animal. Tigers
  are not really fast runners so they have to creep very close
  to their prey and then pounce.
