How do tigers hunt?
All tigers will fail to capture their prey if they don't succeed
in coming into a distance of the prey of no less than approximately
30-40 feet (10-12 meters). The hunt starts when the Tiger suddenly
explodes in its movement attacking the prey. The hunt is always
Tigers are solitary hunters, which means that they usually hunt
alone rather then in packs, unless the case is with a mother and
her cubs, in which then they would hunt together in order to teach
her cubs how to survive and catch their prey. They are also prone
to hunting at night rather then day.
Tigers use their great weigh, mass and strength to their
advantage while hunting. Typically they will hide wherever they can
when they notice suitable prey nearby, the element of surprise is a
big part of a tigers hunting technique. When the prey is close
enough, they will use their mass and strength in an attempt to keep
it off balance, and will generally bite into the preys neck without
letting go until it dies of strangulation. If the prey is rather
small they tend to bite into the back of its neck rather then the
side or front, until it dies of a broken spinal code, pierced
windpipe or broken jugular vein.
