My information on Tigers

The legend: Irrespective of the culture or language, the tiger is considered as the undisputed ruler of its domain and it has had a profound influence on village life in Asia over the centuries. In popular belief the tiger is the oldest resident of the jungle, living there long before humans came. People working in their gardens or in the forest do not dare to call the big cat by its common names. Instead they use respectful titles like 'grandfather/grandmother in-the forest,' 'old man of the forest,' 'general' or 'king of the forest.'

The tiger is variously feared, respected, admired and distrusted depending on the context. The popular beliefs swing between its power to help or harm, save or destroy;... View More »

They are active at dawn and dusk.

Status: At the beginning of this century it is estimated that there were 100,000 wild tigers; today the number is less than 8,000. Simply put, tigers are disappearing in the wild. The main threats to tigers are poaching, habitat loss and population fragmentation.

Fact: It is estimated that 100,000 tigers roamed in the wilds of Asia at the beginning of the last century. There were as few as 5,000 to 7,000 wild tigers by the end of the 20th century.

Fact: Like a sprinter, the tiger runs quickly, but only for short distances (about 80 feet). Unlike the human, tigers may reach speeds up to 43 mph (70 kph). The fastest humans can sprint 100 meters in a little less than 10 seconds (22.4 mph or 36 kph).

Fact: Wild boar are a favorite meal of tigers. They also may eat domestic cattle. Even though tigers have been known to occassionally kill people, it is estimated that only three out of a thousand tigers have been man-eaters.

Tiger crisis:
Tigers increasingly compete with expanding human population and industry for land and food, and many are killed by poachers who sell their skins and body parts as ingredients for traditional Chinese medicines. If these trends continue,the wild tiger may evolve from being an endangered species and off the endangered species list to become an extinct species. A few of the remaining endangered subspecies may survive only in zoos; others will live only in stories, pictures and myths, never again to roam the earth.

    The nature of reality is, perhaps, the most perplexing conundrum that the universe has ever presented to mankind. It has taunted the psyche of philosophical minds for millennia. What exactly is this phenomena called reality? To examine the nature of reality, we must first examine the word reality. Reality comes from the Latin term realitatem, which means: all that is real. Therefore, the key to understanding the nature of reality lies in understanding the nature of what is real. Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines real as: (1) occurring or existing in actuality; and (2) existing as a
