Bengal tigers can be found in tropical forests and grassland biomes in India, China, Indonesia, Siberia and Bangladesh. They are at home in mangroves and tropical rainforests throughout continental Asia.
There are only an estimated 4,000 Bengal tigers left in the wild, a statistic that has led to its status as a protected animal in various areas around the globe.
Wherever the Bengal tiger lives, it is the master of all it surveys, thanks to its powerful muscular body that can weigh up to 600 pounds. It's a carnivore, so it feasts on a variety of animals, including birds, pigs, monkeys, boars, and from time to time, elephants.
