As long as their habitat provides them with ample grass to hide in, with ample food and water, they can adapt to just about any environment simply because of their versatility. Tigers enjoy hiding and stalking their prey. If you look at the tigers found in India, you will see that they can live in the snowy regions of the Himalayas as well as the forests and the plains of central India. You will never know when a tiger is around unless you pay attention to the other animals in the area and their calls of alarm.
Tigers need a large amount of land to roam. This is one of the reasons why so many wildlife reserves have large areas, penned or open, for the tigers to live in. These areas are abundant with prey for the tigers to feed on, although tigers in captivity are usually fed a strict diet and do not have to hunt for their next meal. If you have ever seen a tiger in captivity, you will notice that they will pace their cage and lay in the tall grass, sometimes making them hard to see. This is natural behavior for the tiger and they will pace and hide even on the lands they inhabit where they are not confined.
