Tigers live in the rainforest as well as in a range of other habitats. The five tiger subspecies that are still alive are found in tropical lowlands, forests, woodlands, tall-grass jungles and swamps across Asia.
Tiger habitats vary, but they have a few basic requirements. In particular, they must have some amount of vegetative cover, sufficient prey animals for food and a good source of water. Though tropical areas often meet these needs, tigers are at home in a range of climates and ecosystems. They can even live in areas with extreme snowfall and temperatures that reach -40 degrees Fahrenheit.
