Tigers are the largest members of the feline family. They inhabit a wide area of land, stretching from Siberia to north-eastern China, India, and Indochina and make their habitat mainly in rainforests, mangroves, and boreal forests (taigas). Tigers are not fast runners. However, they are able to jump amazingly well, a skill they make use of when sneaking up and pouncing on their prey. The hair on their back is yellow with black, horizontal stripes. Tigers found in the northern regions tend to be light yellow in color while those in the southern regions are more orangish. For food, tigers eat almost anything depending on what they can find in their place of habitat, from insects (locusts, etc.) and small animals to large ones such as deer, wild boars, and cows.
