how to draw a tiger

Hi everybody and welcome to a new tutorial on the NIL-tech, this time entitled "How to draw a tiger’s face step by step . Quickly acknowledged by its coat of reddish-orange with dark stripes, the tiger is the biggest wild feline in the world. The big cat's tail is 3 feet long. Typically it weighs 450 pounds, just about like 8 ten-year-old kids. It stands 3 feet tall with teeth 4 inches long and claws as long as home keys.


Here are some facts about tigers:

1. A female tiger gives birth to a litter of three or four cubs, who she will look after up until they are a year-and-a-half old. These cubs quadruple in size during their very first month!

2. The powerful predator generally hunts alone, able to reduce victim such as deer and antelope. Tigers wait up until dark to hunt. The tiger sprints to an unwary animal, generally pulling it off its feet with its teeth and claws. If the victim animal is large, the tiger bites its throat to kill it; smaller sized victim is usually killed when the tiger breaks its neck. Tigers have actually been understood to consume to 60 pounds of meat in one night, however more frequently they consume about 12 pounds throughout a meal. It may take days for a tiger to finish consuming its kill. The cat eats till it's full, and after that covers the carcass with leaves and dirt. The tiger comes back to feed some more.

3. Tigers live far apart from each other. A tiger understands if it remains in another tiger's territory based on the trees around him. Each tiger marks the trees in its location with urine and unique scratches.

4. Unlike most members of the feline household, tigers seem to take pleasure in the water and swim well.
