Tigers (Panthera tigris) are mammals of the Felidae family, one of four “big cats” that belong to the Panthera genus, and the largest of all cats, living or extinct. The magnificent tiger is a heavily muscled, powerful predator that stalks and ambushes large prey, camouflaged by its stripy coat. Notice how well the tiger’s coat blends into the stone wall behind him. Photo taken at the Riverside Zoo and Gardens in Columbia SC
