Tiger Feeding Facts (Thanksgiving Edition!)

Tiger Feeding Facts (Thanksgiving Edition!)


Tigers in the wild can eat over 80 pounds of meat in a single sitting. Though they’ll eat anything from an elephant to termites, today we will be seeing how they take on a Thanksgiving turkey. Tigers usually sneak up on their prey from behind, hold it down with their paws, and latch on to the neck until the prey has died. With a bite force of over 1,000 pounds per square inch, twice that of a lion, it doesn’t take much to get through the bone to the juicy meat within. Their tongues, covered in sharp, rear-facing bristles called papillae, help strip fur, feather, and flesh from the prey as the tiger digs into its meal.
