TIGERS’ NOSE AND EARS

You can know the approximate age of tigers through the colour of their nose. While young its pink in colour and keeps darkening to blackish-brown as they grow older.

The white spots at the back of the tiger’s ears are called ocelli. There are many theories about their function which remains largely unknown.

TIGER PLAYING IN THE WATER

Tigers are adept swimmers. Unlike almost all other big cats, they enjoy bathing and often play in the water. As adults, they often swim several kilometers to hunt or to cross rivers. The only other big cat that doesn’t mind getting wet is the black panther. However, they don’t seek out water or play in the water like tigers do.

Unlike many other animals, tigers do not drink water by lapping it up on the top of their tongue, due to their tongue bristles. Instead, they cup the back of their tongue to flick water droplets into the air, which they then close their mouth over.

KEEPING EYE CONTACT WITH A TIGER

Tigers do not normally view humans as prey.Tigers will only attack a human if they feel threatened. Or if they’re really really hungry. If you were to ever encounter a tiger in the wild, slowly back far, far away while keeping eye contact with him. Chances are you’re in his territory and he wants you to leave more than he wants to eat you.
