Tiger Quiz

Here is a tiger quiz that you can use at a party (?) or once you have got the answers, use it to show off your superior knowledge! You can see the responses on this webpage in the form of a spreadsheet:


Here are the questions (the answers are at the base of the post) - When you have submitted the quiz will grey over. Go to the top and click on the results page or back to quiz:

I hope you enjoy this tiger quiz. It comes courtesy Discovery Channel and Google for the form. The answers to this tiger quiz but please test yourself, why bother otherwise?:
  1. While Amur (also known as Siberian) tigers are the world's largest, with males growing nearly 11 feet long, they have the fewest stripes of all tigers.
  2. The night vision of tigers is about six times as good as the night vision of most humans.
  3. Tigers in the wild are thought to live on average to about age 10. But tigers in zoos often live to be 20 years old.
  4. Tiger cubs are born blind and weigh only about 2 to 3 pounds. Tiger cubs live on milk for six to eight weeks.
  5. The particularly rough tongue of the Amur, or Siberian, tiger helps it to peel skin and flesh from bone.
  6. Tigers are indigenous only to the continent of Asia
  7. No two tigers have the same pattern of stripes
  8. About 2 million years ago, primitive tigers were already spreading from eastern Asia into other parts of the continent.
  9. An adult tiger can eat as much as 60 pounds of fresh meat after a kill.
  10. Bengal tigers seem to like water, and not only will hunt there but sometimes rest in water to keep cool.
On last point. The tiger is endangered and there is a real risk that this most popular of animals will become extinct in the wild. I really fear for the welfare of this animal. Knowing about the tiger may help to protect it as so very many people do not, through no fault of their own know enough about the tiger. The phrase out of sight out of mind applies and while the tiger is out of mind it is becoming extinct.
