SUMMER SALE! 15% OFF AND FREE SHIPPING. USE CODE ROAR15
A good, hearty roar is the tiger sound we know and love. But there's more to roars than what meets the ear. Tiger roars are a way of marking their territory - they've evolved to become individualized and are transmitted at such low frequencies that they can be heard through the thick jungle miles and miles away by rivals.
The forest shakes from their roars!
These apex predators are highly territorial and need large areas of land in order to hunt and thrive. Tragically for the tiger, an estimated 95% of its historical habitat has been decimated by deforestation and rapidly expanding human infrastructure. Its shrinking natural habitat has forced the tiger into closer contact with local communities, where hunting domestic livestock will often result in the tiger being captured or killed and then sold on the black market.
The Bengal tiger's striking, iconic stripes have remained a hunter's prize for eternity. Beyond poaching for pelts and trophy hunting, the selling of body parts for traditional medicines is still widespread in Asia today. Conservation groups such as Panthera are working with local governments to shut down black market trading and educate consumers about protecting this important species.
