As beautiful as they are fierce, this is not a kitten you'd want to mess with! 🐅 Today's nugget of knowledge is the tiger.
- Much like cats, when tigers are comfortable, they exhibit what's called, "chuffing" — soft, low-frequency snorting similar to purring in smaller cats, and is heard in more friendly situations.
- Although for the most part avoiding each other, tigers are not always territorial and relationships between individuals can be complex. An adult of either sex will sometimes share its kill with others, even those who may not be related to them.
- Since the early 20th century, tiger populations have lost at least 93% of their historic range, due to poaching, and loss of habitat 😔
