The natural heritage in India is as rich and diverse as the cultural heritage. The wildlife sanctuaries and the national parks here give you an essence of the same. Nestled in this rich land is the Royal Bengal Tiger, the only home to the Royal Tiger Cat. The largest living member of the cat family has a rather graceful built and gait. Bengal Tiger is the fastest running animal. Its length can measure up to 10 feet and has a weight ranging from 180 to 260 kgs.

The habitat of this elegant swift mammal (Bengal Tiger) varies from the swamps of the Sunderbans to the desert land at Ranthambore, from the foothills of Himalayas at Corbett National Park to Bandipur in the peninsular India. In 1973 was launched the Project Tiger to get hold of the dwindling count of the indian tigers. Around 9 wildlife sanctuaries were declared as tiger reserves, which has now increases to 19 covering an area of 33,000 sq. kms in 14 states. The beauty of the royal bengal cat can now be seen in its natural surroundings in these conserved areas.

If you are fascinated by the royal Bengal tiger and wish to see it in its natural surroundings, a visit to these tiger reserves is bound to be an enchanting one. All these reserves have the facility of tours to the forested area to watch Bengal Tiger. One can choose a suitable mode to tour. It can be by jeep or on the elephant backs. Corbett National Park was the first one covered under the Project Tiger. Named after the famous environmentalist Jim Corbett, it houses diverse flora and fauna and has weather suited for flourishing wildlife.

Within the dark, deep woods of South Bengal, criss crossed by the estuarine canals, is situated the marshy mangrove jungle of Sundarbans - the den of the Royal Bengal Tigers. His majesty has even left tracks on the Himalayan snows at 10,000 ft. As you begin your exciting journey in Sundarbans, chances are you may come across a pugmark of a real Royal Bengal Tiger on a mud flat.

The Royal Bengal Tigers were once ruled the special ambience of Sunderbans, and this tiger country was popular as the Big Game Hunters Mecca. But after facing a drastic fall in the Tiger population, Project Tiger was implemented in 1973 and later Sundarban Tiger Reserve was demarcated over 2,585-sq-kms. The core area of 1330-sq-kms has been declared a National Park and has been chosen as a World Heritage Site.

Distribution
The home to Royal Bengal Tigers (Indian Tigers or panthera tigris) is India Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, and Burma where these graceful animals live mostly in sanctuaries. The usual habitats for these animals are dense forest, mangrove swamps, savannahs, rocky countries and lush grassland. Bengal Tigers are the most numerous in population than any other Tiger subspecies. They are the largest living member of the cat family and the fastest running animal.

Diet
In the wild Bengal Tigers are pure carnivores and hunt medium-sized animals, such as rabbits, badgers, water buffalos, deer, wild boars, goats and sometimes they hunt domestic cattle. A Bengal Tiger will drag the kill to a safe place to eat. They are able to eat up to 40 pounds at a time and then go without eating for days. Some Tigers become man-eaters, but it happens to be very rare. In the zoo Bengal Tigers are fed chicken, horse meat and kangaroo meat five days a week and fast on bones twice a week.

White Bengal Tiger
White tigers are very rarely found in the wild. In about 100 yeas only 12 white tigers have been seen in the wild habitats of India. They are almost extinct and most of the ones living are in captivity, mainly in zoos. This specific tiger is neither an albino or a seperate subspecies of the tiger. They are simply white colored and have black stripes that makes them special. It has blue eyes and a pink nose. It also has prestine white colored fur. The white tiger is born to a bengal tiger that has the recessive gene needed for white coloring. A pure white tiger has no stripes and are completely white in color.

Pristine wildness !
The splendid white coat is caused by a double recessive allele in the genetic makeup, and only turns up naturally about once in every 10,000 births. Strangely enough, the Bengal tiger is the only subspecies in which this seems to happen. As magnificent as it may look, life of a white tiger can't be as easy as it looks.

Habitat & Range
Tigers usually dwell in an area from about 10 to 30 square miles where there is enough prey, cover/shelter and water to support them. Territory mainly depends upon the amount of prey which is available. The more concentrated the prey the smaller is the area that a tiger needs to survive.

Life Span
White tigers in the wild live for about 10 to 15 years while tigers in zoos usually survive 16 and 20 years.

Diet
Tigers do not hunt in social groups like lions. They are usually solitary animals. In the wild, tigers would eat pig, cattle and deer. They can eat as much as 40 pounds of meat at one time! After such a big meal a tiger will not eat again for several days. White Tigers possesss 30 large teeth ranging from 2.5 to 3 inches.

From there, they migrated down south as the climate became colder. In Asia, India and Malaysia are the two prominent countries where tigers live. The Indian tigers, the Royal Bengal tigers are the most graceful animals found in Sundarban in Bengal.
