Tigers are carnivores – this means that they eat meat!

What Exactly Do Tigers Like To Eat?
Well, their favorite things to eat are deer and wild boar. Tigers hunt their prey, and so what they eat depends a lot on what they can catch!

Depending on their habitat and what’s available, tigers will also eat any of the following:

  • Antelope
  • Buffalo
  • Monkeys
  • Domestic livestock
  • Fish
  • Large lizards
  • Pythons
  • Baby rhinos
  • Baby elephants
  • Injured animals (they’re easier to catch!)
Tigers will also eat berries, fruit and grass if they have to, although they don’t like these anywhere near as much as meat!

How Do Tigers Catch Their Prey?
Tigers usually hunt by crouching in long grass and stalking their prey. They wait for the perfect moment before striking and pouncing on their target. Then, they pin the animal to the ground and bite it lethally on the back of the neck.

Ever seen your cat hunting for mice? That’s pretty much how tigers hunt, too – just on a much larger scale!
