Although it is one the most magnificent and revered animals, the tiger is listed as "endangered" and is on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Not only is it under threat from poachers, its natural habitat is fast dwindling; current estimates suggest that there has been a 40% depletion over the last decade. The Tiger possesses extraordinary characteristics such as high sensitivity, secretiveness and the ability to surprise; untiring perseverance, agility in attack, its tenacity to follow and the strength to overpower its prey. These qualities make the Tiger the most successful predator. He is the symbol of the Indian jungle. Its flexibility, powerful muscles, the symmetry and mesmerizing gaze is inspiration enough to those who want to capture this unmatched beauty in their heart.
