Royal Bengal Tigers


Tigers can be found in varied environments, including snowy forests of Siberia, tropical rainforests of Indonesia and dry grasslands of India and China.

Size and Weight

Tigers range in size from 7-10 feet from the tip of the nose to the end of the tail. The average weight of a tiger is 200 pounds to over 575 pounds depending on the sub-species.

Gestation Period

Gestation period is 15 - 16 weeks. A female can give birth every 2 - 4 years. The average litter is 2 - 4 cubs. Cubs are blind at birth, approximately 12 inches in length and 2 - 4 pounds. Cubs stay with their mothers until they are between 2 and 3 years of age.

Heterozygous Golden Tigers

Heterozygous golden tigers look identical to other golden tigers. However, they differ in one important way; a heterozygous golden tiger carries the recessive gene for a white coat. In other words, when bred with a white tiger, a heterozygous golden tiger may produce striped white or snow white cubs.
