От издателя
Тигр является одним из самых совершенных хищников в природе. Обладая длинными и мощными зубами (до 2,5 дюймов!), тигры убили больше людей, чем любое другое млекопитающее. Места обитания тигров отличаются большим разнообразием, они живут при температурах от -30 до 118 градусов по Фаренгейту. Несмотря на то, что тигры отлично приспасабливаются к условиям окружающей среды и являются отличными охотниками, их вид относится к исчезающим. Три из пяти разновидностей тигров полностью вымерли, а пять других находятся на грани уничтожения. В течение многих веков люди охотились на тигров, и даже теперь разрушают среду их обитания.
