Animal - Tiger
carnivorous feline quadruped, Panthera Tigris, maneless, of tawny
yellow colour with blackish transverse stripes and white belly,
proverbial for its power and its magnificence.
There are very few
tigers left in the world today. A decade ago the tiger population in
India had dwindled to a few hundreds. The Government of India, under
its Project Tiger programme, started a massive effort to preserve
the tiger population. Today, thanks to Project Tiger, India's
population of tigers has considerably increased.
