TIGER LEAP

Although tigers are powerful and fast over short distances, the Bengal tiger cannot outrun fleet footed prey such as deer. Instead it uses stealth to catch its victims; attacking from the side or the rear.

The hind legs of tigers are extremely powerful. A fully-grown tiger can leap over 8 meters. – Drawing. 27×35 cm. 2019.

TIGERS and 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.

.

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.

If you rile a tiger, he’s going to show his claws. – Drawing. 24×35 cm. 2019
