Taming Wild Tigers

With the recent release of Two Brothers, there's no better time to talk about tigers. Sure, everyone knows that the lion is the King of the Jungle, but did you know that tigers are actually the biggest member of the cat family? Read on for more tiger tidbits!

Tigers - A Breed Apart

Even though they all have the same orange-and-black coloring (there is one exception, but more on that in a bit), there are actually five different subspecies of tigers. They are: Amur (better known as Siberian), Bengal, Indochinese, South China, and Sumatran. It's in the Bengal subspecies that you will find the famous white tigers, which are extremely rare and don't even exist in the wild anymore!

Tigers - Where In The World?

Aside from those that live in zoos, the majority of tigers can be found in Asian countries like India and China. Despite the similar names, sabretooth tigers are not at all related to today's tigers (they're both from the cat family, though!).

Tigers - Vanishing Point

Around 100 years ago, there were over 100,000 wild tigers in the world! Now, because of poaching and our expanding population, there are only 7,000 wild tigers left. However, thanks to the efforts of many zoos, it's unlikely tigers will ever become extinct - although there is a good chance wild tigers might disappear off the face of the earth. If you'd like to learn more or even help, there are plenty of resources on the internet - www.tigersincrisis.com is a great place to start!

Tigers - Did U Know?

  • A group of tigers is called a streak, however tigers generally prefer to live alone.
  • Tigers can eat around 40 pounds of meat at one sitting.
  • Unlike their domesticated cousins, tigers love water and are excellent swimmers.
  • Tigers generally live to be 15 years old.

I honestly think that if you believe the earth is flat, there is something fundamentally wrong with your way of thinking and how you decide whats true and whats not. so what your saying is that if we believe in the flat earth we have some kind of mental problem???

forgive my stupidity there the real reason why they launch the missle is so they could coat the dome with radiation then they would bounce radio waves from ground satilletes from teh dome and back to ( internet towers, cell towers, etc) as the live footage you see from sates are nothing but cgi footage

If there exists the Van Allen Radiation Belt then the earth is round (or some sort of three dimensional shape at least) because there cannot exist magnetic monopoles. On the "flat earth wiki" it states that the Earth acts like a spherical magnet, which is also not consistent with the existence of the Van Allen radiation belt (then the charged particles are suspended radially around the ring which would obviously result in catastrophic damage to the atmosphere and land on Earth). Furthermore, the Van Allen Belt does not inhibit space travel, it only makes running digital equipment more risky. Certainly NASA, Roscosmos and ESA did not all lie to mask the "truth". Flat Earth would make it necessary to rethink fundamental physics, including gravity (general relativity), and a significant amount of electromagnetism knowledge that is well established and proven beyond concept. the van allen beltt is actually ther fermintation dome which for the reason of having radiation is the suddenly missle launching from not just america but russia as well to see if they could break the dome,F.H cook was also the one who discovered the ice wall yet says that there is land beyond it the size of america.... i would like  for that to be explained as well and i would like also for people to disprove the ice wall and why military a guarding it if it's just your ever day ice wall!!

Transfer pic onto wood. Do a picture within a picture to show how many generations. A time-line pic or pictures. Hope you're able to find something for your Mom. Good luck. Yeah! That's a perfect idea!
