The largest member of the cat family


Class: Mammalia (mammal) Order: Carnivora (meat-eating mammals) Family: Felidae (cats)
The tiger is the largest member of the cat family. It is also the largest land living mammal with a diet that consists entirely of meat.
This creature is one of the most magnificent and imposing of animals. It has a powerful muscular body with big paws and large, curved claws which help to make it the perfect hunter. The claws are retractile, that is, they can be pulled into the paw.
