Bengal tigers are back
Two new Bengal tiger cubs introduced on March 5. After a two year absence from the Zoo’s Asian collection, the Montgomery Zoo introduced two Bengal Tiger cubs on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 at 10:00am. One cub is an orange male and ten months old. The other cub is a white female and 1 year old. Come join us in welcoming our two new Bengal tigers to their new home at the Montgomery Zoo’s Tiger exhibit, located in the Asian Realm of the Zoo.
Tigers are the largest members of the cat family and are renowned for their power and strength. Bengal tigers live in India and are often called Indian tigers. They are listed as an endangered species and considered solitary animals, aggressively scent-marking large territories to keep rvials away. They are powerful nocturnal hunters that travel many miles to find buffalo, deer, wild pigs, and other large mammals. Tigers use their distinctive coats as camouflage (no two have exactly the same stripes). An adult tiger will grow to be five to six feet long and weigh 240-500 pounds. Females give birth to litters of two to six cubs, which they raise with little or no help from the male. Cubs cannot hunt until they are 18 months old and remain with their mothers for two to three years, when they disperse to find their own territory.
