Cultural India: National Animal, Tiger

TigerThe large Asiatic carnivorous feline quadruped, Panthera tigris, maneless, of tawny yellow colour with blackish transerve stripes and white belly, proverbial for its power and its magnificence is the national animal of India.

There are very few tigers left in the world today. A decade ago the tiger population in India had dwindled to a few hundreds.

The Government of India, under its Project Tiger Programme, started a massive effort to preserve the tiger population.

Today, thanks to Project Tiger, India's population of tigers is in a comfortable Position.
