TIGER-LIKE Tigers are rare and endangered in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
They are considered a threat to the population of the country’s native wild tiger species.
Here are five things to know about them.
What are tigers?
Tigers are large animals with a body length of around 1.5 metres (5ft 2in).
They can weigh up to 3,000kg (5,000lb) and live for up to 20 years.
The most common are the black tiger, the red-eyed tiger, and the white-tipped tiger.
TIGERS ARE NOT AN ANIMAL The white-tailed tiger is the most common species of tiger in the DRC.
Its habitat is largely in the north-west of the DCC, in the rainforests and lowland savannas of the Sahel region.
Tigers are solitary animals that live mainly in groups of up to 10 to 15, although they can live in small groups in dense bush.
They are also often seen roaming the rainforest to hunt and kill game.
They spend most of their time in forested areas, where they can get lost, or foraging for food.
TERRORISTS: TIGRISTS CAN TAKE DOWN A PERSON A TIGREEEEEEEEEEEEED!!!!
TIGRES HAVE LIFES AND CAN BE SAVED The most common type of tiger to be found in Africa is the red tiger.
It is one of the most threatened species in the world, with a population estimated at less than 10,000 in the wild.
It has been declared extinct by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
A small population of this species can be found on the banks of the river Nile in Egypt.
The last known breeding female was captured in 2011.
The female was found living in a mangrove swamp, near the town of Kafr Dura.
She is believed to have been in a group of up 25 to 40 males.
TIGRING AT THE HOMELESS: TEXTS OF THE RED TIGreEEEEEEEEEEED!!!
Tiger bites are relatively common.
They happen in the form of small punctures or abrasions on the skin, usually from a sharp object, but occasionally can cause injury.
There is no way of knowing the extent of tiger bite injuries, as it can vary from person to person.
They can even result in a permanent injury.
RUSTY THOUGHTS: A TIGROOM OF AN AUSTRALIAN TIG RESIDENT In 2007, an Australian man was bitten on the face while sleeping in a hut near Kambia, the capital of the Democratic Union for the Republic of the Congo ( DRC ).
The man survived and is now living with a life-threatening wound to his face.
HOW MANY TIGRIES ARE THERE IN THE WORLD?
There are estimated to be more than 2,000 white-backed and red-backed tigers living in the forests of the south-east of the world.
Their habitat ranges from the tropical savannahs of eastern Africa to the tropical rainforelands of western Africa.
A large number of white-back and red tigers have been recorded in South Africa, with some populations in the KwaZulu-Natal region.
How do tigers differ from lions and tigers?
Tigers have a much bigger size and have a very long and strong tail.
The tail is the longest of all the animals, with an average length of 3.4 metres (11ft) and an average weight of 4,600g (1,000lbs).
Tigres are solitary and are often seen hunting for food in small packs, as well as roaming the forests for prey.
WHAT ARE THE NATURE CHANGES IN THE DRC?
The DRC is a part of the African continent, and is a large country, with about 100 million people.
This makes it a very diverse country.
In addition to the tiger, there are more than 200 different other species of animals in the country, including the hippopotamus, leopard, and leopard seal.
WHERE ARE THE TIGROMAN TIGREE RESOURCES?
Africa’s biggest tiger reserve is in Uganda.
It consists of the Red Rhino National Park, and a large area known as the Rhino Forest Reserve.
A few areas of the northern Congo have a significant tiger population, which is mostly found in rainforeths, or the lowlands.
What are the effects of climate change on the DRE?
Tigers have been living in some of the driest and most remote parts of the continent for thousands of years, with the last known populations in Africa.
The impact of climate is changing the habitat and ecosystem of tigers in many places,
