Tiger is a very large, powerful wildcat with a striped coat. The coat varies from whitish to yellow to orange or orange-brown, and the stripes range from grey to brown to black. It is said that two tigers have not the same pattern of stripes, in the same way two humans have not the same fingerprints. Although a tiger's stripes look colorful and bold, they actually help the animal hide, because the stripes blend in with the tall plants in its environment.

It is found in forests and swamps, with dense ground vegetation. Its home is Asia; India, China, Indonesia, Mongolia, Siberia.
