Model answer:
Tiger is a wild animal which is very common in our country. It is the largest animal of the cat species and they grow up quite large. It can grow up to 11 feet and can weight more than 300 kg. Tigers generally live about 25 years and they require a large habitat area that supports their prey requirements.

Most of the tigers of the world are found in the widely are across Asia, Turkey and Russia. The most recognisable feature of a tiger is its dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside. They have got a big head and sharp teeth claws. It is a carnival animal that mostly depends on the meat of other animals. The largest number of tigers can be found in India and the total subspecies and the numbers of tigers are decreasing over time.  Tigers are good swimmers and are often found crossing rivers and lakes in heavy tides.

Tigers usually hunt alone unlike other animals that prey in a group. They first target their prey and aim at it. When the target is fixed, it attacks with a sudden ferocity overpowering the prey with the strength and size. Tigers have great leaping ability and can run very fast.

This formidable large wild animal is getting extinct over time and they have become numbered in the world. Approximately only 3500 tigers are present in the world and the number is decreasing. Many tigers are held in the zoo for public and they usually live on supplied meat.

In my opinion, since the human is superior to any other living species, we have a responsibility to prevent the extinction of the tiger as we are the primary reason for their extinction. Wild animals are part of the eco-system we live in and we have a natural responsibility to preserve a balanced eco-system for our own good.
