Do Bengal Tigers Have Enemies?

Bengal tigers do not have natural enemies. These tigers are among the largest and strongest in the world, allowing them to dominate the food chain without any predators.

Bengal tigers grow to lengths of up to 10 feet and can reach weights of up to 550 pounds. Their largest population is found in India, with smaller numbers of Bengal tigers living in various other eastern Asian countries. Though Bengal tigers have no natural predators, humans are their biggest threat. Approximately only 2,500 of these tigers remain in the wild. This is due to human expansion and poaching. Conservation efforts in recent years are helping to stabilize the Bengal tiger population.
