The Tiger (Panthera tigris)  is most recognizable for its dark vertical stripes on orange-brown fur with a lighter underside. It is preying on ungulates such as deer and wild boar. It is territorial and generally a solitary but social predator, requiring large contiguous areas of habitat, which support its requirements for prey and rearing of its offspring. Tiger cubs stay with their mother for about two years, before they become independent and leave their mother's home range to establish their own.
