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.

Cat Ear Mites

Brown gunge. Yes, I know this is a ferret! It does show the build up of dark brown to black ear wax caused by the presence of the cat ear mites in the outer ear canal. This parasite is not restricted to the domestic cat, which makes this photo valid and a useful illustration (I was unable to find a suitable photo of a cat with the condition). Photo Stacy Lynn Baum under a creative commons license. Ear mites (minute crab like creatures) are one of the causes of inflammation of the outer ear canal (scientific term for this inflammation is Otitis externa ). The outer ear canal is the tube that runs from outside to the ear drum (the pathway for the reception of sound), which can be seen when looking at the ear. Otitis externa affects humans and often swimmers as it is called "swimmer's ear" in humans. This YouTube video show ear mites under a microscope. They are not actually in the ear in this video. There are many possible causes of Otitis externa in c

Feline Mange

I'll write about three types of feline mange (a) feline scabies or head mange (b) demodectic mange and (c) sarcoptic mange. The source material is from Cat Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook - the best on the market . Generalised feline mange? Puerto Rico - Photo by Gotham City Lost And Found Feline Scabies - head mange Head mange or feline scabies, is a fairly rare condition in cats, which is caused by the Notoedres mite (head mite) that only reproduces on cats. The female mites burrow a few millimeters (that is a lot) into the skin around the head, and neck to lay eggs, which hatch and lay their own eggs. Their presence and activities causes intense itching that in turn causes the cat to scratch. The scratching will obviously be noticed and it will cause the skin to become red, scratched and worse infected. Symptoms: hair loss and scabs, thick wrinkled skin and grey/yellow crusts form plus the symptoms of scratching. Feline mange (head mange) is contagious and tr

Cat Anatomy

Cat Anatomy - Photo by Curious Expeditions . The picture above was taken at Wax Anatomical Models at La Specola in Florence, Italy. The photograph is published under a creative commons license kindly granted by the photographer. I am sorry if it is a bit gruesome. It is pretty well all I could find as an illustration that was licensed for publication. Cat Anatomy is a very wide ranging subject. The anatomy of a cat is very similar to human anatomy. If you were writing a biology book for students of biology you would go through every part of the a cat's anatomy in some detail. It would be similar to writing a book about the human anatomy. It would be a thick book and pretty boring for your average internet surfer. So, how do you limit such a big subject and make this post meaningful? The answer I think lies in doing two things: Having a quick general look at cat anatomy - an overview and; Focusing on the areas of cat anatomy that are particular to the cat and of parti
