Like most of the members of the cat family, the tiger is an ambush hunter, attacking from cover, and then launching a sprinting attack of up to 70km/h. It uses its massive forepaws and claws to immobilize its prey, and it uses its powerful bite to suffocate it as a killing blow.
The tiger is found throughout east and south-east Asia, from India to Siberia. However, it is a very rare and endangered animal, and is extinct in parts of its former range.
