Bengal Tiger Footprint Cast

Description

Bengal Tiger Footprint Cast measures 8.6×6.69 inches. Animal Tracks are an invaluable asset to science teachers, naturalists and zoos. These educational plaques, made of extremely durable plastic, are actually cast from the authentic footprints left behind by each animal described.

The Bengal tiger or Panthera tigris tigris coat is yellow to light orange, with stripes ranging from dark brown to black; the belly and the interior parts of the limbs are white, and the tail is orange with black rings. The white tiger is a recessive mutant of the tiger, which is reported in the wild from time to time in Assam, Bengal, Bihar, and especially from the former State of Rewa. However, it is not to be mistaken as an occurrence of albinism. In fact, there is only one fully authenticated case of a true albino tiger, and none of black tigers, with the possible exception of one dead specimen examined in Chittagong in 1846.

The Bengal tiger or Panthera tigris tigris males and females have an average total length of 110 to 120 in. and 94 to 104 in. respectively, including a tail of 33 to 43 in. long. They typically range 35 to 43 in. in height at the shoulders. The standard weight of Bengal tiger or Panthera tigris tigris males ranges from 386 to 573 lbs., while that of the females ranges from 220 to 350 lbs.

The smallest recorded weights for Bengal tiger or Panthera tigris tigris are from the Bangladesh Sundarbans, where adult females are 165 to 176 lbs. The tiger has exceptionally stout teeth. Its canines are 3.0 to 3.9 ins. long and thus the longest among all cats. The greatest length of its skull is 13.1 to 14.8 ins.

The basic social unit of the Bengal tiger or Panthera tigris tigris is the elemental one of female and her offspring. Adult animals congregate only temporarily when special conditions permit, such as plenty supply of food. Otherwise, they lead solitary lives, hunting individually for the forest and grassland animals, upon which they prey.
