The home to Royal Bengal Tigers (Indian Tigers or panthera tigris) is India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, and Burma where these graceful animals live mostly in sanctuaries.
The usual habitats for these animals are dense forest, mangrove swamps, savannahs, rocky countries and lush grassland. Bengal Tigers are the most numerous in population than any other Tiger subspecies.
Bengal Tigers (and all the Order Carnivores consisting of cats, dogs, bears, and weasels) are descendants of a marten-like animal called the miacidae, which evolved during the late Cretaceous period.
The Saber-tooth Tiger was not the ancestor of modern Tigers; it was an evolutionary dead-end
In the wild Bengal Tigers are pure carnivores and hunt medium-sized animals, such as rabbits, badgers, water buffalos, deer, wild boars, goats and sometimes they hunt domestic cattle.
A Bengal Tiger will drag the kill to a safe place to eat. They are able to eat up to 40 pounds at a time and then go without eating for days.
