Tigers are giant house cats (not to be confused with the Elitist Tiger Woods) who are closely related to land lions. However, unlike house cats, tigers make unsuitable pets because they require too much food, and are difficult to "handle"
Most tigers prefer to live in zoos. This way they can lay around all day long in the sun and have food brought to them without exerting energy. Lesser, unfortunate tigers are stuck in the wet, humid jungles of India (imagine how knappy their fur must get).
The most noticeable characteristic of a tiger is his stripes. Tigers have lots of stripes. But they're so much more than that. we should all take note of what tigers have ever done and will do for us each and everyday.
Some may say that the tiger is an endangered species. How en-"dangered" can a tiger be? What other animal could be dangerous to an 8-foot long striped beast weighing 700 pounds, and possessing 9 inch long fangs? (OK, possibly a bear). With these tool, tigers are well capable of taking care of themselves without the help of humans.
