What do tigers eat?
Smaller mammals and birds are occasional prey. Tigers have also been known to eat crocodiles, fish, birds, reptiles, and even other predators like leopards and bears.
After eating its fill, the tiger may cover the remains with grass or debris and then return for additional meals over the next several days.
A tiger can consume up to 40 kg of meat at one time, but individuals in zoos are given 5-6 kg per day.
Solitary huntersTigers hunt primarily by sight and sound rather than smell, and typically hunt alone.
They stalk their prey and, once they have reached close proximity, attack from the side or rear, killing by a bite to the neck or the back of the head.
