Tigers are beautiful animals that have special striped markings to help them blend in with their natural habitat. They are the largest of the big cats and dwell in a wide native range across the Asian continent. From India to Russia, six different species of tiger can be found. This year is the Year of the Tiger in the Chinese zodiac calendar. It is a great time to celebrate these remarkable animals.
