    The tiger is indeed a mammal, and it's a large one. This member of the cat family is one of the most recognizable animals on the planet, both for its distinctive striped fur and its intimidating size. Tigers originate in Asia are seen all over the world in zoos, but their population is endangered.

      Title:National Geographic Readers: Tigers Author:Laura Marsh Through this book I learn tigers are able to live in both hot place and cold places, such as Indonesia, and Russia. Most of the tigers live in the forest, they also spend a lot of time in the water. Their favorite foods are buffalo, deer, and wild pig. The Tigers’ important traits are the coat, teeth, eyes, paws, tail, and back legs. I learn many things in this book, so I hope you can go to see this book.
