Top Predators:

Tiger stripes are unique – like your fingerprints. This is how scientists who study tigers can tell them apart.

Once mature, tigers are solitary; coming together only for mating.

Tigers have no predators, except humans.

Tigers communicate through scent, vocalizations, and visual signs like claw marks on trees.

At Reid Park Zoo:

A tiger’s stripes help it to hide (camouflage). If you can’t find the tiger, look along the plants on the edges of the exhibit; he might be hiding there.

Tigers are excellent swimmers, and you may find the tiger in this habitat enjoying the pool on a warm day.
