Tigers are tolerant of an unbelievably wide range of habitat conditions from dry forests to steamy jungles and even freezing temperatures.
Part of the tiger’s ability to persist in current and changing landscapes is its flexibility.
Tigers are tolerant of an unbelievably wide range of habitat conditions. They are at home in the hot, dry thorn forests of Rajasthan and the steamy tidal mangrove swamps of the Sundarbans. They can live in tropical forest, or pine, oak, and birch woodlands of the Russian Far East, surviving in temperatures of -34° Celsius.
That they can persist in such vastly different and diverse environments is an affirmation of a relatively low-energy-expenditure lifestyle that features fairly high success rates in capturing prey, short chases of prey, and long intervals between kills of large prey.
