"The tiger is the symbol of power, unbridled, elemental…. And he lives alone, unblemished,
unmarried. The more you know about him, the more he gets into your imagination."


Tigers are the most magnificent of all the cats. The tigers of India, Panthera tigris tigris, are commonly known as the Bengal tiger. The Indian Tiger or the Bengal tiger is the most majestic of all the species of tiger and is therefore called the Royal Bengal Tiger. We present information on the Royal Bengal Tigers of India. The Tigers in India, as elsewhere, are a protected species. Under Project Tiger, India has many Tiger Reserves for the protection of the Tigers of India in the natural habitats of the Tiger.
