Bengal Tiger: The Bengal tiger is a large, striped cat from India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, and Burma. It lives in a variety of habitats, including rainforests and dense grasslands. The Bengal tiger can live to about 18 years in captivity, and probably a few years less in the wild. Bengal tigers are mostly solitary, but sometimes travel in groups of 3 or 4. These tigers are in danger of extinction due to over-hunting by poachers.
We were so unbelievably lucky enough to see a Bengal tiger while on foot in the jungle in Chitwan National Park, Nepal...we took photos and vids with shaking hands, emptied our pants and got the hell to the nearest treetop lookout!
