Coming in at # 5 on my favorite carnivores series is the Tiger, one of the most beautiful creatures ever created, they are usually Orange, with black stripes, but they can also be white, with black stripes. Tigers are the biggest big cat alive in the world today, big males can get over 11 feet in length and, around 800 pounds, they also have the longest teeth of all cats. The sad thing is they are very endangered, there is less than 4 thousand alive in the wild today, most of those in India and, Russia. Another very cool thing is male Tigers sometimes help raise and, protect their cubs, one male was ever recorded to raise two orphan female cubs and, train them to be Tigers, that's something I just learned and, way cool. I didn't know males were that nice, they always seem the villain. Some information verified at Wikipedia. I have also studied about them and, watched them on TV for years.

Good choice for #5...tigers are pretty amazing and pretty cool. I think they would be higher on my list. I was showing my students a short documentary on lions and they gave a little bit of information about tigers as well. If I understood correctly, tigers are bigger than lions. They also said that tigers have a more ferocious roar and sometimes in movies with lion they will dub in the tiger's roar in place of the lions. Has anyone else heard this claim before? Great discussion, TR!

@TRBRocks420 Poaching and hunting endangered species are illegal. I am glad that tigers are being preserved now and their habitat too which is the main reason for their decrease in numbers. Human has taken over their habitats for building houses, mills, buildings etc...
