Top 10 Biggest Trees in the World

The maximum height for trees is between 400 and 426 feet (122 and 130 meters).
While past trees may have achieved these impressive heights, some of the world’s tallest trees have unfortunately been brought down for timber.
Consider the following 10 trees, each one the biggest trees in the world:

10. Rullah Longatyle (Strong Girl)

The world’s largest eucalyptus and the largest blue gum in Tasmania (Eucalyptus globulus Labill) capacity.
Rullah Longatyle, meaning Strong Woman, is situated near Geeveston, Tasmania.
It is Australia’s second most large tree by volume of the trunk. The volume of its trunk is about 368 cubic meters.

9. Kermandie Queen

A 400-year-old veteran of the southern forests of Tasmania is reportedly Australia’s biggest tree.
The Kermandie Queen, a 76-meter swamp gum or mountain ash rising in a rainforest just south of Geeveston, is just three-quarters the height of Australia’s tallest tree, the neighboring Centurion, soaring 99.7 m.
But the Kermandie Queen has outmuscled the competition to be called our biggest tree by using a formula that takes into account the girth, height and crown size of a tree.
This tree was burned during the January 2019 fire.
The Kermandie Queen, who in volumetric size rivaled the Arve Giant, was also severely damaged by the fires and shed large branches that are the size of typical trees themselves.

8. Arve Big Tree

Perhaps the Arve Big Tree is 84 m, a long shot from the current record holder of the world’s biggest flowering plant, the Centurion, which towers at 99 m.
Though also seen some of Australia’s tallest trees.
Standing before me was a behemoth that I had never seen in Tasmania or anywhere in Australia.
The surrounding trees in his prime were like scrawny babies next to a Yokozuna.
The Arve Big Tree weighs 405 tons, according to the information boards, and is one of Australia’s largest trees.
In contrast, an adult Blue Whale would be just 190 tons.

7. Cheewhat Giant

Canada’s largest tree, the Cheewhat Giant, is protected in southern Vancouver Island’s Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.
The massive western red cedar has a diameter of 182 feet (55 m) in height and 20 feet (6 m).

6. Douglas fir tree

This Red Creek Fir, at least 1000 years old, is a Douglas fir tree.
It was called the world’s largest Douglas fir with a diameter of 4.2 meters and a height of 73.8 meters.
Red Creek Fir on Vancouver Island is the largest Douglas fir on Earth.
The tree and a small surrounding tree stand currently receive “soft” protection through an Old-Growth Management Area, but law mandates “hard” protection in the form of a conserving forest, or nature reserve that also includes a much larger buffer area.

5. Tane Mahuta

Tane Mahuta is the fifth largest tree in the world by volume, with 516 cubic meters in volume.
This is a giant kauri tree (Agathis australis) in Northland, New Zealand’s Waipoua Forest.
The age ranges from 1,250 to 2,500 years. It is today’s biggest kauri known to stand.
Its name Māori means “Lord of the Wood” in the pantheon of Māori from the name of a god.

4. Arbol del Tule

Located inside a gated churchyard in the picturesque town of Santa Maria del Tule, the Árbol del Tule is the widest tree in the world.
The local Zapotecs like to joke that the Tule shares some of their characteristics: it is short (only 35.4 meters in height), stout (11.62 meters in diameter), and old (about 1,500 years).

3. Grogan’s Fault

The largest known living coast redwood is Grogan’s Fault, found in Redwood National Park in 2014 by Chris Atkins and Mario Vaden, with a total trunk volume of at least 38,299 cubic feet (1,084.5 m3).
Certain high-volume redwoods along the coast include Iluvatar with a main trunk volume of 36,470 cubic feet (1,033 m3)160 and the Lost Monarch with a main trunk volume of 34,914 cubic feet (988.7 m3)

2. Lost Monarch

Lost Monarch is a Northern California Coast Redwood tree with a diameter of 26 feet at breast height and a height of 320 feet.
In terms of wood volume, it is the largest coastal redwood in the world.
The largest known living coast redwood is Grogan’s Fault, found in Redwood National Park in 2014 by Chris Atkins and Mario Vaden, with a total trunk volume of at least 38,299 cubic feet (1,084.5 m3).

1. General Sherman

General Sherman is a giant sequoia tree growing in Sequoia National Park’s Giant Forest in Tulare County, California, the United States.
It is the largest known single-stem living tree on Earth by volume.
The tree is roughly 52,500 cubic feet (1,487 cubic meters) in height, named General Sherman.
That’s more than half the volume of an Olympic pool, commonly considered to be 88,500 cubic feet (2,506 cubic meters).
It is estimated that General Sherman is about 2,000 years old.
This makes it just a giant sequoia of the middle age, as it is known that other trees are more than 3,220 years old, based on tree ring counts.

Top 10 Most Intelligent Animals in the World

Human beings are not the only Earth’s smart creatures.
Research shows that some animals are far smarter than people realize, according to National Geographic.
In this respect, we have created a list for some of the most intelligent animals in the world.
Both small and large animals made up the list and proved that larger species are not always better in terms of brains.
Top 10 smartest animals:

10. Bees

Why are bees Intelligent -

Honeybees have developed through “swarm intelligence,” with as many as 50,000 workers working together in a single colony taking democratic decisions. 
During the spring when a hive becomes overcrowded, colonies send Scouts to find a new place to stay in If scouts disagree with the colony’s next hive, they argue their case peacefully: a dance-off. 
In a quest to convince other scouts of the merit of their spot, each scout performs a “waggle dance.” 
The more enthusiastic the dance, the happier the scout was with its newfound place.
The rest of the colony votes with their bodies, they fly to the place they prefer and join the dance moves so far as the # 1 bee disco of the local reigns. 
Regrettably, how awesome it would be if only Congress settled its disputes in the “dance-off” way. 
Neuropsychiatrist Jon Lieff observed, “They have a kaleidoscopic memory of every flower for miles, and learn from wise elders where the best flowers are.”

9. Squirrels

Why are squirrels are Intelligent -

Squirrels are fast learners and learn from their peers, according to a recent Science Daily study.
Food stealing is the squirrels-passing trick. Recent researchers reported that rodents showed advanced caching to counteract robbery.
When squirrels see humans stealing their peanuts, this behavior develops in the experiment.
The scientists have asked for a sign that squirrels could perceive other’s actions but only learned behavior.
Squirrels who knew that they were being observed dug fake bins for their nuts, digging holes and patting them with sand, covering their precious nuts under their armpits or mouth until they could find some good place to hide.
In the scent of rattlesnakes amid California, researchers found squirrels are covering their fur to mask the smell of predators.

8. Octopus

Why are octopus is Intelligent -

We can say that among invertebrates Octopuses are the among leas expected yet most intelligent animals ranked.
The tricks used to detect the enemy and locate them is proof, to show the intellectual power of these multi-armed creatures.
Don’t be fooled by those squishy hands.
According to researchers, Octopuses are extremely smart and can communicate their details like cultural information, mimicry, and communication using colors and patterns.
Octopuses have the biggest brain compared to the rest of the invertebrates.
An average Octopus has about 130 million brain neurons.
There are 100 billion neurons in the human brain. Three-fifths of the neurons octopus has, however, is not limited to the brain.
Each arm has a mind that is it’s own so it can wander and even take food as it was still attached before cutting off (Octopus can regrow the new like Deadpool).

7. Parrots

Why are parrots are Intelligent -

Parrots are considered as intelligent as a child, that’s why parrot is the only one of the two birds listed among the top 10 smartest animals.
These birds solve puzzles and also know the cause-and-effect notions.
Among them is the African Gray parrot, a bird renowned for its incredible memory and counting ability.
African Gray Parrots can learn and use a huge number of human words to communicate with people.
We all know how ingenious parrots are, but are they all capable of doing just that? No!
Over the years, there have been several studies on different parrot types to determine what they can and how intelligent they are.
Alex (an African Grey Parrot) was the subject of a 30-year study that found that he was as clever as a 5-year-old human!
Alex can identify over fifty objects, five shapes, differentiate colors, and can recognize up to six numbers.
Not only that, but Alex had more than a hundred words in his vocabulary, too!
Perhaps most interestingly, was Alex’s ability to ask a question.
He asked, “What color?” when looking at his own self in the mirror?
After being told six times, he learned the word “Grey.”
This is extremely important as Alex was the first-ever non-human animal to ask a question.
While animals like dolphins and primates can answer questions, no one has ever asked a question.
Parrots could seem to be fully aware of their surroundings and own existence.

6. Crows and Ravens

Why are crows are Intelligent -

Corvids like crows and ravens have long before much study has been carried out in this area, for their intelligence.
They have complex social systems, besides being one of the few species that can use tools to find food and solve problems.
Some crows or ravens have an incredible memory to remember people’s faces.
It is found that crows have a social system and communicate with each other using gestures.
It’s bad news because the words among them will spread and the flock may dive and strike heads for the people who have harmed one of them.
We now learn that crows are smart enough to open hard-to-crack nuts by using as can figure out how to complete a complicated array of occurrences to solve a puzzle.

5. Pigs

Why are pigs are Intelligent -

Pigs are among the most intelligent animals in the world, according to critics.
It is found that they are wiser & cleaner than cats or dogs (the reason pigs go around in the mud is not because they like to get dirty but because they have no sweat glands like us to cool off them).
Researchers that studied the pigs have learned they have excellent long-term memories, can solve puzzles easily, can understand a simple symbolic language, like to play and play-fights with one another, can learn to operate a joystick to move an on-screen cursor (get ready to be defeated on Fortnite next time by a pig).

4. Dogs (Canidae family)

Why are dogs are Intelligent -

There would be no smartest animals list without Man’s best friends, our very own pet dog.
We, humans, use that intelligence for both personal and official protection.
Dogs understand empathy, show compassion, and have good gesture awareness.
The average dog knows about 165 human words, according to the canine intelligence specialist Stanley Coren.
A dog of Chaser border collie breed showed a 1022 word understanding.
I need not provide the evidence if you already own a dog.
For example, they can learn to sit, lie down and fetch, also they can read the intentions their owner too (Notice your dog when you really have a plan to take them out for a walk).
Researchers found that in reaction to nonverbal data, they can at least find food, a form of awareness which scientists think is close to the human ability to comprehend another’s viewpoints.
But sometimes dogs can get dangerous too if their mental health is not enough stimulated.
What if I say you that even their cousins like Wolves, Coyotes, Jackals, Foxes are far smarter than an average dog?
It is true as you may have heard expressions like ‘crafty wolf’ or ‘cunning as a fox.’
This may sound like mystical characters from folktales, but in reality, these wild canines are much cunning than we really know.

3. Elephants

Why are elephants are Intelligent -

Elephants have a reputation for smarts and have incredible memories (sometimes more than us).
They can remember certain routes over incredible stretches of land and for many years to watering holes — and unlike us, they never forget a friend (elephant or human).
A female elephant named Shirley arrived at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee in 1999.
An elephant named Jenny soon got excited and playful immediately.
It was a strange elephant behavior as elephants need some time to develop friendship, nor was it love at first sight.
After some background research, it was found that 22 years ago, they used to perform in a circus together for a brief time.
In the wild, these extremely social animals are helpful, compassionate and empathetic.
Their trunks and feet can cause seismic (land vibrations) activity, which makes it possible to communicate with other long distant elephants.
Elephants are probably the only animals that use seismic waves to communicate.
Researchers observed elephants use tools such as sticks to sway off ticks or with palm fronds to swat at flies.
Because of the sheer size of their brains, elephants need to know anything or two about the world.
We could see family members manage comfortably, help another species in times of need, play with water and communicate with each other through vibration in their feet.
An achievement, according to some researchers, was the recognition in the mirror of this female Asian elephant named Happy.
Only humans, great apes, and dolphins have this complex behavior of self-recognition.

2. Dolphins

Why are bees Intelligent -

Dolphins, after humans, have a high brain-to-body ratio.
Their trainers observed that Dolphins have some ability to understand emotions and can intentionally mimic stupid apes that research them.
Findings from the Marine Mammal Studies Institute in Mississippi show that dolphins can be the second sneakiest animal on earth.
When dolphins were trained in their tanks to pick litter and exchange them with trainers for fish, a dolphin named Kelly found a way to game the system.
Kelly discreetly tore single sheets of waste paper into multiple pieces by burying litter under a rock in her tank and then used to exchange that piece for fish.
Kelly’s smart deception was not an accident; researchers say she did this practice deliberately.
Bottlenose Dolphins are one of just a handful of animal species that produce their own vocal signature sounds by using vocal learning.
Early in life, every dolphin creates a unique vocal whistle that gives an individual identity of its own.
Since each whistle is different, dolphins can call each other by mimicking a dolphin with a whistle.
It is the same as calling one another by name as we humans do.
Most dolphins build strong social relationships to remain with the group’s injured and sick members to help them breathe onto the surface of the water if needed.
Sometimes, Dolphins also protects human swimmers from sharks by swimming around them or rushing at the sharks to scare them away.
It is also known that dolphins team up with people to catch fish.
Dolphins scare off fish to the from deep waters towards the shore towards fishermen ready to drop their nets.
Not just that, when it is time to drop the nets, the Dolphins signal fishers, who then catch some fish.
Now that’s an example of what we can call brilliant teamwork.
In Australia, some dolphins use a sponge to protect their nose from hunting on the ocean floor, a behavior that parents pass to offspring.
There are countless examples to prove dolphins smartness which we couldn’t include in our list.

1. Chimpanzee (Great apes)

Why are chimps are Intelligent -

Chimpanzee is the smartest animal in the world.
Great apes and humans share approximately 98 percent of DNA, which is remarkably similar.
We could say that humans are closer to Chimps genetically than an African elephant is to an Indian elephant.
They live in social communities, and like humans, they can adapt to various environments.
Chimps make and use tools for drinking water, such as rocks to crack up nuts and leaves.
In the human environment, they can play games such as chess or poker very well because of their ability to use game theory.
Chimpanzees are talented in outsmarting, dis-intelligent humans in many tests on the concept.
Chimpanzees have a very strong short-term memory, even stronger than us.
Ayumu, the chimpanzee could remember the precise sequence and placement of the numbers on a monitor after observing it for less than a second.
For us, humans it is almost impossible to do it, even for skilled memory champions.
Chimpanzees have a much better short-term memory than almost all humans, and can not be underestimated for their intelligence!
They use tools, organize their hunting strategies, interact with each other to reinforce bonds (sometimes sexually) and engage in violent acts groups.
Chimpanzees can show empathy, altruism, and self-awareness in field observations and lab experiments.

Top 10 Biggest Flowers in the World

Biggest flower in the world

Flowers have beautified the landscape of this planet from millions of years.
They succeeded and proved highly effective with their basic deceptive adaptive development–using color and smells to attract insects and animals to pollinate them.
Floral plants today are one of the planet’s most complex living groups.
There are many fragrant & beautiful flowers in the world, but many of them are similar in size (about 1 inch to 5 inches in diameter).

10. Lotus

largest flower in the world

The lotus flower is one of the world’s most recognizable and sacred flowers.
The stunning flower is a universal symbol of some of history’s most influential cultures and religions.
We commonly find lotus in white to pink colors.
It mostly grows in murky and shallow waters and need warm sunlight to grow, but are cold climate intolerant.
This flower would not flourish in winter consequently as it is aquatic in nature.
Under muddy still water it thrives, with its roots in the deeper sludge.
The short twigs go up into the water and the waxy waterproof leaves sit right on or above the water surface.
The flower’s bloom which is above the water surface commonly has a diameter up to 20 centimeters (7 inches) when fully matured.

9. Magnolia

top 10 biggest flowers

One of the first flowering plants on Earth is supposed by researchers to be magnolias.
Fossil fossils prove that they have been on Earth for around 100 million years, according to scientific research.
Because magnolia is so old, the flowers have no real petals and sepals; they have petal-like tepals instead.
The flowers are not really nectar-producing, but they do attract pollinating beetles with fragrant and sweet secretions.
Magnolia flowers come according to variety in various shapes, sizes, and colors.
The magnolia family comprises high and fluffy trees with pink, white, red, purple, yellow blossoms.
Most magnolia varieties have wide bulbs measuring 6 to 8 inches in diameter.

8. Hibiscus

Biggest Flower in the World

These large, colorful flowers are known as hibiscus or Hibiscus sabdariffa.
Such flowers will surely beautify a home or garden prettily but they are also used for medicine.
Hibiscus may be red, yellow white and peach, and can be as wide as much as 8 inches in diameter.
The hibiscus family is a mix of diverse plants–from annuals to perennials and shrubs–famed for their large, audacious bloom, often as big as a plate.

7. Tree peony

biggest flower in the world

Common peony is an exquisite flower.
However, its bigger counterpart, the tree peony is a very different plant.
The tree peony is the largest flower in the world when you consider the actual human use them.
Tree peonies are woody shrubs; with no support, as some grow at 10 feet high.
They have many forms, colors, and fragrances, and their flowers are much bigger and typically bloom about two weeks earlier than herby peonies.
They are used as decorative ornaments as well as in medicine in China.

6. Common Sunflower

biggest flower in the world name

Sunflowers are mainly from North and South America, and some species are cultivated in farms for the spectacular sizes of their blossom and for their edible seeds (which is used to make sunflower oil or can directly be eaten roasted).
At least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day is needed for the sunflowers, the better if you try to maximize their potential for size.
The excessive blooming of gigantic sunflowers is difficult to top.
On towering stems, the Russian variety opens flowers up to 14 inches in diameter, 9 to 12 feet high.
This is the edible sunflower which is grown to eat seeds.
We generally sow seeds in spring while the crop is harvested at the end of summer.

5. Puya raimondii

most big sized flower in the world

Puya raimondii is the largest bromeliad species, with a height up to 15 m and is also known as the queen of the Andes.
We can find this type of plant species in Bolivian and Peruvian forests from the high Andes.
The flower can reach a height of up to 30 feet (9.14 m), which contains 8-12 million seeds per plant.
The Queen of the Andes in the wild have only three populations.
Most of the bromeliad is comprised of thousands of species, but Puya raimondii has very small genetic diversity.
Puya raimondii currently are on a verge of extinction because it is unable to adapt to climate change and deforestation.

4. Neptune grass (Posidonia oceanica)

most biggest flower in the world

The Posidonia Oceanica, which is also named “Neptune grass”, has been sequenced by a group of scientists to be around 200,000 old seaweed covering ocean floors from Spain to Cyprus.
The plant has roots, twigs, leaves, flowers, and it creates fruits known as sea olives.
It should not be confused with algae. It flowers in the autumn.
The leaves are tape-shaped, measuring between 1 cm in width and between 30 and 120 cm in length.
This aquatic plant lives in the Mediterranean Sea and in certain areas south of Australia, with similar characteristics to dry land.
Among the many strengths of Neptune Grass is that it oxidizes the oceans and is also a food source for many animal species.
Its appearance also shows that the water is of good quality and is well stored. We often term Posidonia Oceanica as “Mediterranean’s Lungs”.

3. Talipot palm

biggest flower in the world images

Talipot palm, originating from Southern India, is one of the world’s largest palms.
It has a height of up to 25 m and a diameter of stems of up to 1.3 m.
It is a palm fan with a diameter of up to 5 m, a petiole up to 4 m and up to 130 leaflets.
The Talipot Palm has one or more million small flowers, the largest inflorescence in any plant, 6-8 m long, on a branched trunk stitched on top of a trunk.
The Talipot palms are monocarpic, which means they flower only once at the age of 30 to 80.
It has many uses and is as useful as coconut in its native region and is fruits are called ice apple which is surprisingly tasty.

2. Titan arum

Amorphophallus titanum

Amorphophallus titanium is the flowering plant with the largest unbranched inflorescence in the world that bloom rarely for a short period.
The flower releases while it is in bloom a smell, like a rotten corpse.
Fluorescence of the titan arum is not as large as the talipot palm but rather branches off, unlike talipot which makes it a bigger flower.
The plant itself reaches approximately 10 to 15 feet in height, and the leaves can be as large as 13 feet (4 m).
The tallest recorded bloom of corpse flower according to Guinness Book of World Records was 10 feet 2.225 inches tall.⠀
On June 18, 2010, it flowered in the Gilford, New Hampshire, Winnipesaukee Orchids.
In the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the corpse flower is classified as “vulnerable” in the Red List of Threatened Plants.
But, if the conditions that affect its life and reproduction do not change, the plant may become endangered. Habitat loss and devastation are the primary threats.

1. Rafflesia arnoldii

rafflesia arnoldii

Rafflesia arnoldii is the largest flower in the world that has a diameter of over three feet.
This parasitic plant is steady, not visible until it is about to bloom, with no roots, stems, twigs, or leaves.
Buds arise over months to the size of the cabbage without a sign of the contaminated host plant.
This flower too has a rotten corpse smell (more intense than Titan arum).
While the flies gain nothing from the flowers, the pollen sticks to its back as they rest on the bloom, attracted by its rotten meat scent.
When these flies pass into a female flora, the pollen is released in the flowers so they can fertilize it.
The produced fruit has thousands of seeds and is fleshy and small.
Such fruits are consumed by tree shrews, which then continue to disperse the plant’s seeds (by excretion).
Since Rafflesia is a unisexual plant and an uncommon one, flies sitting on a male’s bloom and bringing pollen from that flower have tiny chances of sitting on a female’s bloom and passing pollen into a female for fertilization.
Rafflesia arnoldii is one of the world’s most endangered plant species.
The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) also classifies certain Rafflesian species such as Rafflesia Magnifica as “critically endangered.”
Rafflesia’s two primary factors contributing to the extinction of these species are the limited geographic area of this species and deforestation.

Top 10 Rarest Animals in the World

rarest animals in the world

The survival of endangered species by breeding and destruction of habitats and the effects of climate change is the main threat posed by human beings.
Read about what beautiful animals need our assistance, protection, and preservation most.
To justify their existence, I will exclude common-looking yet not so common animals like endangered philippine deer or northern hairy-nosed wombat.
As we humans only love animals that have an exotic appearance.
These are the top 10 rarest animals in the world:

10. Pangolin

top 10 endangered animals

You probably have never heard of the shy and nocturnal Pangolin, which lives in Asia and Africa’s forests or grasslands.
Pangolins are cute, small (approximately house cat’s size) and can protect themselves if they feel threatened by curling up in a circle.
They are also incredibly popular vulnerable species plus the most trafficked mammal in the world.
For their scales and their meat, people catch them. It is estimated that every year up to 100,000 pangolins are caught.
Conservationists struggle to save the pangolin, the world’s most illegally sold mammal before they are “eaten to extinction”.
Its meat in China, Vietnam and elsewhere in South-East Asia is considered a delicacy, whereas scales are valuable for traditional medicine.
In India, China, South-East Asia and parts of Africa there are still eight species to exist.

9. Javan Rhino

top 10 endangered species

Javan Rhinoceros is one of the only five sub-specious & is closest to Indian Rhino but small in size than its Indian counterpart.
The Javan Rhinos were once abundant in Indonesia and Southeast Asia but are now only about sixty (searched into two known populations) in the wild.
They are now on the Critically Endangered list. In captivity, there are no Javan Rhinos.
We can consider the Vietnam War as the biggest reason for Javan Rhino’s depletion, as it has severely depleted its natural habitat, is considered as one of the biggest disruptions to the existence of Javan Rhino.
Blackmarket hunters are looking for their horns like other rhino populations.
In the last 15 years, only two female Sumatran rhinoceros have bred successfully, but efforts to breed over captivity have not performed well.

8. Red Wolf

vulnerable species

The Red Wolf is the Gray Wolf’s cousin. Although native to Florida and the southeast, in eastern North Carolina you may find just around 25 to 40 of them that live in the wild.
Red wolves are classified by the IUCN as critically endangered.
Conservation efforts to save the animals have been made but they are still on the verge of extinction.
These canine species are known for their shyness and lifelong mating. In fact, in the wild in 1980, the Red Wolf was deemed extinct.
The number of Red Wolves in captivity has risen to 207, and there are now around 100 in the wild.
A success story, sure, but there are still causes that have contributed to the Red Wolf’s endangerment, including the serious decline of their hunting ground.
Fortunately, there are wildlife reserves, so these wolves are protected against urban expansion in their natural habitat.

7. Okapi

rare animals

Although this rare animal is sometimes called forest giraffes, it looks nothing like a giraffe, until you look closer.
It has a long tongue, yet its limbs have black and white stripes like a zebra and have a physique like a horse.
Okapi is the giraffe’s sole living relative as both belong to the family of Giraffidae, with giraffes are of the genus of Giraffa and Okapi are of Okapia.
The history of the Okapi appears to be back in ancient Egypt, where wall gravings have been found since then.
There were stories of an “African Unicorn” in Europe and Asia before the 20th century. Now it is assumed that it is about the Okapi.
In 1887, Henry Morton Stanley described a kind of donkey named “Atti” in the Congo.
Today we know it that such species mentioned, could be the Okapi. Scientists, zoologists, and scholars today are much better acquainted with these animals.
The reality that the genus Okapia johnstoni is a true fossil, a living creature who seems the way his ancient ancestors are and does not live in close relations, for example, the fact that they are like the giraffe, given its zebra-liking coloring.

6. Amur Leopard

We also know Amur leopards as an Eastern leopard, which is the most endangered feline species in the world.
This is a solitary, nocturnal leopard with an estimated wild population of over 84 individuals live primarily in the Amur basin in eastern Russia with some spread around neighboring China and a new sanctuary built-in 2012.
The leopards in Amur have the lowest levels of genetic variation (mating with genetic relatives) than any leopard subspecies, leaving them particularly vulnerable to extinction.
Amur leopard has a thick coat and long thick hair, which varies on their environments from creamy yellow to rusty orange.
Their rosettes (spots), have thicker black borders and are more widespread than other leopard subspecies.
Their legs are also larger and the paw size is also larger than other subspecies, which makes their movement in deep snow easier.
Despite human interference plays a major role in the endangered state of Amur leopards, their low degree of genetic variation for recent population decrease causes many health problems including decreased fertility.

5. The Elephant Shrew

top 10 endangered animals

This little African rodent is the golden-rumped elephant shrew.
In the elephant shrew family, it is the largest genus with its closest relative, the gray sengi.
The shrew is known as a gold-rumped elephant shrew and is among the most endangered species, primarily because of scattered forests and anthropological circumstances.
Their population is most prominent in Kenya’s Arabuko Sokoke Reserve, but we destroyed their ecosystem because of deforestation.
They are captured in traps but because of the terrible taste of their meat, natives do not use them as a food source.

4. Angel Shark

We can find these species in the Black Sea, Mediterranean, and Northern Atlantic.
Overfishing is one of the reasons for their decline. In the Canary Islands and the Southern Caribbean, there are only a small number of Angel Sharks.
This animal lies under the sand to hunt looking for fish to swim in the area. Angel sharks mostly eat small fish and other small marine animals.

3. Golden Tabby Tiger

Only in captivity is this type of rare tiger found. Unlike other tigers, it has a recessive gene and is sometimes called the Strawberry Tiger or Golden Tabby.
Such tigers have a majority of genes similar to Bengal tigers, but typically have Amur tiger genes in their lineage.
The last appearance in the wilderness of golden tiger was in the early 1900s in India and their unusually associated with areas with high concentrations of clay on the soil.
We know fewer than 30 of these tigers to exist in captivity.

2. Vaquita

The vaquita is the smallest of the marine mammals, around four feet and a half in size.
In Spanish, the name of the animal means “little cow.”
We now estimate that only about 10-15 vaquitas are still present and that their population has decreased at an astonishing rate.
The species is native to Mexico and California. Fishermen who use gillnets are constantly reducing their numbers, threatening their existence.
In cooperation with international environmental scientists, animal care professionals and marine mammal veterinarians, the Marine Mammal Institute is working to protect vaquita by demanding removal gillnets.
These helpless animals that are going extinct soon will completely go extinct until the end of 2019 if we don’t take a firm step for their conservation.

1. Saola

endangered animals

If you never heard of the saola, don’t feel bad. This animal is so rare that scientific researchers only have seen it four times in the wild till now (yes, four times).
It proves saola is the rarest animal in the world, they are referred to as Asian unicorn.
Saola is known for the two horns on his head and the white marks on its face, which are only found in Laos and Vietnam.
Saolas are closely related to cattle, but they look like antelopes a little more.
The main causes of Saola’s risk of extinction are poaching and the loss of its natural habitat.
It can be even more threatened through the loss of habitat and fragmentation because of its restrictive habitat requirements and aversion to human proximity.
Saola has suffered losses as a result of local hunting and illegal trade in furs, medicines as food and meat.

Top 10 Most Dangerous Dog Breeds

top 10 dangerous dogs

Dogs have been part of the human world since the beginning of their domestication.
They were used to protect livestock because of their instinctive guarding ability.
These animals are remarkably intelligent, which makes them good and loyal companions.
While often described as “Man’s best friend,” these animals were not meant to communicate spontaneously with humans.
Almost every dog can cause unimaginable harm and danger, but some breeds show more violent aggressive responses to bite causing serious injury! It depends on a breed to breed.
Based on how many attacks have been recorded & common aggressive temperament concerning average size (like Chihuahuas are aggressive but cannot be considered that dangerous).
These are the top 10 most dangerous dog breeds in the world:

10.Siberian Husky

dangerous dog breeds

Huskies were a traditional breed of domesticated dogs used as sled dogs in the northern regions.
Very athletic and good to move goods luggage with thick coats and unique color fur pattern and an impressive face mask with special blue eyes.
Most of the Huskies love people and are friendly, social creatures.
The owners will say to you that their dog is humble, intelligent, alert and gentle.
However, Huskies are always fired up and active, so aggressive behavior can certainly lead in some way or another.
Keeping large dogs with young children is not a great idea.
Especially if the dog is not familiar with people involved around it, things may go bad with children left alone with a husky.
The Siberian Huskies, however, is a dangerous breed, regardless of the size and age of the casualty, as the statistics prove it.

9. Boxer

world dangerous dog

Boxers are hunting dogs because we human beings, have used them as attacking dogs or as watchdog!
They’ve got a strong jaw and bite force–perfect to protect!
Most Boxers are dominant dogs and show aggression against other dogs of the same sex. They are sometimes aggressive to humans as well.
Like huskies, many of the attacks by the Boxer involve children because they don’t know how to act around with these dogs.
Unless we do not properly handle this breed, situations can quickly become dangerous and even fatal.
Shabbily trained or bred Boxers could harm a person, especially a child, to a considerable extent.
Such dogs were indeed bred in Germany for hunting and to compete in dog fightings.
You will never know how or when natural instincts will kick in.
But they can turn out very offensive attackers if they are not properly trained!
The other thing to remember when training boxers is that we should avoid punishments and harsh treatment as these factors may irritate them.

8. Akita

most dangerous dog in the world

An Akita is a large and strong breed of dogs with a noble yet bullying presence.
They were initially used in feudal Japan to protect kingship and nobility. Akita was also trained to hunt wild boars, black bears, and sometimes deer.
The Akita doesn’t stand back and scare easily from threats. They are therefore courageous and faithful stewards of their families but only if properly trained and socialized; They are caring, friendly, and fun dogs.
An Akita when lonely or bored can make it extremely prone to attack.
This breed needs positive socialization and consistent, regular training. They often respond with rage attacks if they are abused or badly treated.
A dog, especially Akita, considers long-term eye contact to be a challenge, which can be violent at any moment.
It is a courageous and willing dog who is naturally diligent about outsiders but very loyal to its family.
Sometimes, they are often hostile to other dogs, especially same-sex ones, that’s why they are best suited for the household who plans in keeping only one dog otherwise they may harm other dogs.
This dog breed will be vicious if permitted or if not properly raised.

7. Alaskan Malamute

deadliest dog

An Alaskan Malamute is like the Siberian or Alaskan Husky breed but is much larger in size.
They’re not aggressive dogs in general, as many owners will tell you, as they are good with people including children.
These are big dogs that were originally grown for freight transportation in snowy regions.
A Malamute maintains a strong drive to hunt down and capture prey from their ancestors.
This sometimes occurs as attacks on other animals or dogs; sometimes as attacks on children.
Around 1966 and 1980 in the United States, five deaths were because of the Malamute attacks.
The main problem, however, is that the Malamute, like the Husky, has a ton of energy that needs to be used on productive use (sledding or hunting).
Until their activeness is not transmuted or used for a long time, their behavior could be violent.
It is likely incompetent owners who drive the Malamute to show aggression.
These dogs require physical and mental stimulation to keep their minds and body healthy.
Such dogs weigh up to 50 kg, so it can certainly prove risky to encounter an angry Alaskan malamute.

6. Mastiff (English & Bull)

dangerous dogs list

Powerful, fierce, and strongly built dogs are the Bullmastiffs.
Such dogs are highly sensitive to security and are reliable for dependability.
These dogs become incredibly reliable and obedient with consistent training from an early age.
However, the Mastiff can be aggressive for various reasons, just like with all dogs.
Neglect and poor training, for example, can be the major cause.
We must teach mastiffs early for socialization. This is the only way to learn how to read & distinguish the behavior of normal people with bad guys.
As they are by genetics distant from unfamiliar people. As they can be a suspect threat of everyone outside the family without socialization.
Such an approach can lead to unusual stubbornness and aggressive behavior.
With a dog breed of this size, both activities may lead to dangerous situations.
They are typically about 36 inches tall and can weigh up to 230 pounds.
You as an owner (or if considering to own) have lots of responsibility for training this strong dog, looking to keep a Mastiff.

5. Wolf hybrid

aggressive dog breeds

It’s not a good idea to own a pet gray wolf, even worse is owning a wolf dog.
As you may predict the behavior of a normal wolf, but cannot comprehend what a wolf-dog might do.
It may have been wrong if Wolves had deliberately been hybridized with dogs as wolves are one of the most deadly & biggest carnivores overall let alone canines.
Some breeders report that the hybrids are shy for people, while others say that the wolf’s predatory instincts are generally maintained by these hybrid dogs pointing that hybrids could turn out to be the world’s deadliest dog breed.
Between 1982 and 2014, Wolf hybrids seemed to have 19 casualties.
Wolf-dog hybrids are classified by the United States Human Society as wild animals.
There is also no guarantee that standard canine rabies vaccination will affect a Wolf Hybrid.
These dogs, as you might already perceive, are genetically half wolves half dogs which can make them unpredictable.
They have a wild and challenging mind on their own! Many states have already banned owning a Wolf Dog in the house as a pet!.

4. Doberman Pinschers

The Doberman Pinscher is a fearless dog often used in special forces, like the police.
Dobermans can weigh up to 100 pounds over other dogs 28 inches tall.
They need to be trained as soon as possible because they have so much energy.
The greatest concern about raising a large dog breed is the ability to perform proper training in obedience.
Of course, they are smart dog breeds definitely. But their dominating nature and weight also make it somewhat challenging to learn.
Many owners describe their Dobie as loyal, habitual, energetic, alert and brave.
But it is possible that with practice they are effective (in fact too much effective).
Maintaining a Doberman demands extra care. Probably those who failed to do this were those who contributed to the accidents caused by Dobermans.
Maintaining and strengthening traits such as independence, intelligence, and aggressive patterns is common among this breed.
While the breeding people in recent decades have tried to ease the rage, the Doberman today still responds with hatred towards strangers.

3. German Shepherd

top 10 most aggressive dogs

The origins of the breed date back to the 1800s in Karlsruhe, Germany.
In the United States, its second most popular dog breed known as Alsatian.
No training can make these dogs likely to attack people (mostly strangers) and smaller dogs.
They are integral and important aspects of any police force unit all around the world.
Most people sometimes call them police dogs for their considerable use in forces.
But since they are so credible for combating crime, they can become dangerous if placed in a difficult situation.
The typical German Shepherd who belongs to the family believes that he has one task “to protect the family”.
Accidents could occur with this kind of mentality.
So long as german shepherds see someone (or something) as dangerous for the pack, your German shepherd will probably attack and defend its family (humans or other dogs).
The attack can be brutal and sometimes fatal because it is 25 inches tall and weighs at 80 pounds 300 pounds of biting force it is a sheer display of their considerable biting strength.
They can accidentally hurt small children, even if they don’t want to.
The German Shepherd is by far the most popular housekeeper in the USA.
In fact, they are the most aggressive dog breeds in America, except for Rottweiler.
During the Second World War, German and French used them as military dogs.

2. Rottweiler

Rottweilers are dangerous dog breeds and are also known as unsafe family dogs, particularly for households in which the owner is an amateur without a calm and confident personality.
To avoid dangerous reactions, you need to be disciplined and cautious constantly!
Rottweilers were bred to have exceptional strength and good herding and defending instincts.
Rottweilers are the second breed in the United States by the number of dog attacks.
If you are considering buying one, pay a premium of time and training for a Rottweiler puppy.
Though, in reward, you get one of the world’s fiercest dog that will guard you.
Even if the Rottweiler is usually a good-natured pet, they do whatever they need to protect the pack (you or your family).
Many owners will call them loyal, intimidating, courageous and trustworthy.
Perhaps all the deaths were the effort by robbers to enter the property.

1. Pit Bull

top 10 dangerous dogs

The pit bull is probably the most infamous breed on the list. Even by its owners or family, they are considered unpredictable and vicious.
State and local governments around the world are strict in restricting this dog’s ownership by breed legislation.
Originally bred as fighting dogs, we still know it for its extreme aggression, strength, and determination for an attack.
Pit bulls have the most fatal attacks against adults 21 to 54 years of age.
Pit Bull are fighting dogs and will strive with the determination to do their job until it is over!
They have a strong jaw with a strong bite-force and are well known for not easily releasing their bite.
I used to own a white male Pitbull (who died in an accident) which was nothing like a normal dog in terms of brutal strength.
There was an incident in a farmhouse when my Pitbull found a big bone of a rotten dead lamb.
As I didn’t want him to have any health-related problems, I tried to grab that piece of bone which resulted in a kind of tug of war between us.
Taking that bone out of his growling mouth was like pulling a metal bar struck between industrial gears.
His aggression cost me many dollars buying a new industrial chain, which used to break anyway (I used industrial chains, as he used to snap any rope easily).
This is the dog breed that ends in combination with the strength of a bulldog and agile energy of the terriers.
Pit Bull even today are used in dog-fighting, in some countries where the dogs are trained to fight until death.
All these factors make Pitbulls the strongest yet the world’s deadliest dog breed.

Obviously, any pet may attack a human; dog bites are not confined to such dangerous breeds.
If a dog of a usually friendly breed has been mistreated, is poorly socialized or is out-of-sorts on a given day, you can maul your leg in anytime soon.
Please do share the top 10 dangerous dogs list with your dog lover friends on social media if you liked this post. 🐶

Only 84 cheetahs were observed in 14 areas of protection between December 2011 and November 2013, and they recognized 82 individuals from camera trap pictures.
As from December 2017, in three subpopulations, fewer than 50 cheetahs remained spread over 140,000 sq. km on the central plateau of Iran.
The Asian cheetah diverged between 32,000 and 67,000 years ago from its African cousins.
During the British colonial periods in India, Cheetahs were named hunting leopards, the name derived from the names that Indian monarchs held cheetahs captive to hunt wild antelopes in large numbers.

10 Blue Whale Facts which will Astonish you

Blue whale facts

Blue Whale is the biggest animal in the world, there is no other animal else that can be identified as being larger than a Blue Whale.
How big is a blue whale?
The average length of adults blue whales is 79 ft (24.1 m).
In fact, they’re the biggest to ever live. That means the biggest dinosaurs didn’t match the size of a Blue Whale.
These marine mammals are so big that a car like mini cooper is similar in size of blue whale heart, and their tongue alone can weigh more than a fully grown elephant!
Largest blue whale
The reported longest whale was 100 ft (30.5 m) in length. 
However, a single, blue whale was 98 ft (29.9 m) for the most length measured scientifically, from the rostrum to tail notch.
Blue whale weight
On average, Antarctic males weigh 112 tonnes, and females weigh 130 tonnes.
If you are looking for information about some fun facts, below is the list of 10 facts about Blue Whales:

10. Hippos are closest living relative to whales

largest mammal

Fossil study of the long-extinct animals that lived on this planet million years ago confirms that Cetaceans (Ocean mammals) are the closest living cousins of the Hippopotamus.
The analysis of their fossils especially their teeth led the Paleontologists to conclude both Balaenoptera and hippo came from an anthracothere forefather.
These animals migrated from Asia to Africa about 35 million years ago.
It probably swam there as Africa was then an island surrounded by water.
All this means that the modern hippo has evolved in Africa independently and is a truly native animal on the continent.

9. Blue whales don't sleep like us

information about whales

It is one of the interesting Blue whale facts that like most sea mammals, they don’t sleep like us (terrestrial mammals).
If a blue whale sleeps as other mammals do, they will drown in the water deeply & may die due for suffocation.
Evolved with an involuntary respiratory system, only half part of their big brain is closed down during sleep.
The other part remains ready for controlling the blowhole and starting each breath.
They stay silently in a flat place when the whales sit or float slowly next to another whale. It is renowned that sperm whales rest vertically.

8. Whale "vomit" is used to make perfumes & is very expensive

Blue whale facts

A Blue Whale’s diet comprises krills (Shrimp-like creatures) and can eat up to 40 million krill per day.
But just like any warm-blooded mammal, it sometimes vomits.
Ambergris is marine excrement produced from the abdomen of whales that is thought to help digestion.
Discharged from the deep inner water away from the coast, it gets soft and rancid when vomited.
Years of saltwater and wind exposure turn it into something like a rock with a waxy texture and a pleasant smell.
A chunk of ambergris weighing 7 pounds can amount to more than $50,000.
It is extremely valued not only because it is rare, but also because it is difficult to discover an artificial replacement for it as a perfume base.

7. All Marine mammals have nose like us (sort-of)

largest whale

Blue Whales, like fish, can not extract oxygen from water to breathe.
A blowhole is on top of their bodies and is used when swimming to the surface to inhale and exhale in a large amount of air.
There is a misconception that Whales exhale water, Its actually warmer exhaled air, this warmness condenses the water, hence, fountain look.
A Blue Whale, unlike other species, has two rather than one blowhole.
They can maintain their breath submerged for up to 35 minutes.
The nostril (blowhole) is so big that a human baby can crawl through it.

6. Blue Whale milk's texture is like a toothpaste.

amazing facts about blue

Whales generate milk as all mammals do to feed their babies.
It is one of the unusual information about whales that the mother provides her baby milk by enabling it to nurse or squirt to its mouth from the nipple.
The level of 35 percent-50 percent fat in the milk makes it as thick as a toothpaste. This texture allows it to pass without dissolving up with water.
A baby blue whale calf needs around 300 liters of milk every day, that’s the rationing amount of milk for an average family for the entire year.

5. Blue Whales' life expectancy is more than 80-90 years in the wild.

information about whales

Blue whales are animals like humans recognized to inhibit the ocean with an approximate lifespan of 80–90 years.
It is estimated that the oldest recorded blue whale will live up to 110 years!
A lot of variables can determine how long a blue whale is likely to survive when it gets to maturity.
Some of these variables include hunting bu humans, food shortages, nutrition safety, weather change, air and noise pollution, emotional and physical health such as injuries are some factors that influence their age.

4. Blue whales are not actually blue

facts about the blue whale

Yes, Blue Whale is not blue colored, but they appear blue. How can that be?
Well, when viewed underwater, they appear solid blue.
Their actual color is mottled gray, and we can see it when they are taken out of water.
The blue color, however, is only on the upper side of their massive body.
A blue whale’s underbelly has a yellowish hue color. This hue, however, is mainly because of millions of microbes living on their skin.

3. Their voice is really very loud

Blue whale facts

Not only are the Blue Whales the world’s largest animals, but they are also among the loudest.
A jet engine’s sound can record up to 140 decibels, a blue whale’s call reaches up to 188 decibels.
They usually produce moans, groans, and pulses, and can hear each other easily from a distance of 1,000 miles if conditions are right.
That means they’re not only very loud, but their hearing sense is also very powerful!
Using sounds and songs (yes), they usually communicate with each other.
Yet, using their vocalizations and their hearing abilities to navigate through the ocean depths where light can not reach.
The system is called navigation through echolocation.

2. Blue whales can increase their speed up to 31 mph

information about whales

Migration and Habitat
Blue whale habitat is worldwide, but they follow regular seasonal patterns.
They enjoy summers feeding in cold waters of polar regions and make a long trip back to equatorial regions of the Indian ocean as winter comes along.
This seasonal migration is because krills move towards warmer waters in winter.
Traveling a long-distance like this with their massive body is not an easy task.
Their normal cruising speed is around 5 mph, but they can increase their speed and swim at a speed of 31 miles per hour, though, if they get agitated somehow.

1. Conservation status

Blue whale facts

We, humans, are insignificant, and for our pure appeasement, we can ruin anything. 
Why are blue whales endangered?
By the first half of the 20th century, Blue Whales were almost on the brink of extinction because we killed them at large scale. 
About 360,000 of these beautiful creatures were killed by us. 
Why have they been slaughtered?
Just because of whale oil. This whale oil as valuable and have many medicinal properties.
In 1996, The International Whaling Commission stepped forward to protect these creatures. 
As of today, here are only 4,500 (or less) Blue Whales remaining on this entire planet.
Whales like sperm whales, humpback whale, killer whales, and blue whales are endangered not just because of hunting, there are various reasons like,
Increasing ocean pollution because of human behavior threatens their existence
They also die for oil spills (from oil tankers), changes in environmental conditions (which is again mainly caused by human activity), high ocean traffic, and ship strikes, they often collide with big ships and end up dead.

Top 10 Interesting Facts About Tigers

facts about tigers

Some of the interesting facts about the tigers are that they have stories about their unmatched strength and glory in China, Siberia, and India for thousands of years.
Because of this, they have become one of the world’s most renowned predators and are the largest felines.
Tiger is more powerful than 13 human males. A tiger can kill an Indian bull gaur of 770 kg and can drag his carcass for fifteen yards, showing massive strength.
Below we have listed the Top 10 facts about tiger:

10.Personality-wise, If Lions are king Tigers are Army Chiefs

Commander-in-chief is a position that has the supreme command and control over the armed forces of a kingdom or nation.
Unlike the leader of the kingdom, the chief has to make real-time decisions on warfare strategies, tactics & execution.
And if the situation arrives, have to fight with bare hands and survive because most enemies will target commander; destroy the leader, the army will automatically finish.
Commander is a combination of intelligence, leadership and skilled fighting abilities.
In most folklores, apart from strength, tigers are considered villainous, calculating, rough and strategically intelligent.
It’s evident from their habitat and hunting styles.

09.Tigers are considered to be smartest among all big-cats

Tigers have physically bigger brain cavities among the category of the big cats, showing higher intelligence than other carnivores (Polar bears have the biggest brain carnivores).
One of the most interesting facts about the tiger is that they are highly strategic when it gets to hunting, unlike other big cats their diet comprises both agile animals like chitals or sambal deers and hefty buffalos.
According to hunt, they change their hunting strategy.
For deers, tigers don’t just run haphazardly after but wait quietly and patiently for the right time to strike.
And when hunting large animals, they wait for a bull or buffalo to isolate from the group or isolate them by a fake attack and that too all this alone.
While swimming, if a crocodile attacks a tiger, it will not go for its neck, but its soft stomach, as the tiger understands it cannot strike through the body scales of the crocodile.
These amazing animals, apart from hunting, also have a strong memory. The short-term memory of the Tigers holds nearly thirty times longer than the average human can.
Because of this, they remember much more than we humans do.

08.Rivalry with wolves

In their ecosystem, tigers dominate most other predators.
In a recent study, it is found that the Siberian tigers can cause wolves to extinct locally.
Many eyewitnesses claimed that wolves have been killed by Siberian tigers, not for meat, but to end competition.
As a result, the areas of wolf and tiger are rarely overlapping. If a tiger enters the wolves’ territory, they will either leave or will be killed.

07.Their tongue is like barbed nail plate

Tigers have tongue covered with many small, sharp, rear-facing projections called papillae. 
These papillae have a harsh, rasping texture to the tongue and assist them to rip the skin, bones, fur, and flesh of their prey.
Zookeepers know it, tigers love to lick the paint right off the walls of their enclosures in the zoo.
But when a friendly tiger licks you, there’s no need to worry: like domestic cats, tigers often lick other tigers or the people they’ve become familiar to love and not aggression they will even use licking as a manner to relieve anxiety in the same manner we hug!

06.Tigers sometime hunt and kill bears

If you live in Canada you might think Grizzly bears are invincible, The only natural hazard to an old bear is a gang of wolves, even though they are hardly a threat. 
Then you might not know about Siberian brown bears of Ussuri.
It is truth in wild that tigers easily dominate other predators like Wolves, Leopards, and Bears.
But it surprised me when I studied the unusual interaction between Siberian tigers and Ussuri bears.
These big cats hunt and kill bears! Ussuri bears makeup 1.4% of the diet of the Siberian tiger.
So I believe this shows why the tiger is one of the primary predators in the world.

05.A tiger’s roar can paralyze prey

The threatening roar of a tiger can paralyze the animal that hears it, sometimes including skilled human zookeepers. 
Tiger’s roar is for more private purposes: attacks or warnings, annoyance or anger or dread, or sexual availability.
All these vocalizations have distinct sounds and differ in loudness.
The MGM film logo’s Lion has a tiger’s roar and even in Disney’s Lion King Simba’s roar in ending scene is of a Tiger.
Tigers are mostly forested inhabitants and their lands are smaller than they would own a lion’s pride.
Depending on why they make the noise, some measurements suggest that lion’s roar can be heard at greater distances than tiger roars, so they are likely to be louder.
But, the tiger’s roar is louder up close and far scarier.

04.Tigers are gentleman and have manners

It is interesting yet unusual information about tigers is that they share their meals, unlike lions.
Although tigers are solitary animals, they sometimes fall into touch with other tigers. 
Male tigers will share their food when this occurs and let the females and cubs first eat.
This is an interesting case of respectful conduct in the animal kingdom, as other animal species’ males pose a threat to females and young when it’s not a mating season.


Tigers have the brightest eyes in the world of any other animal. At dark, or in the beam of a torch, they blaze back with amazing intensity
Tigers are getting ready to hunt until night time because their night vision is six times better than that of humans because of a retinal adaptation that reflects light to the retina.

02.Unique stripes

Most of the types of cats have marks on both their hair and flesh.
The unique pattern of stripes on tigers indeed acts like their identity, similar to human fingerprints.
Even if you were to shave off Tigers’ fur, the marks would still be seen.

01. Symbol of strength,fierceness and protection

The tiger is the true embodiment of an elegant but bluntly dangerous wild animal.
It has developed the sign of bravery, the real significance of power, the supreme apex predator, the horror of the jungle, feared by all, unbeatable and unstoppable.
As a spirit animal, willpower, bravery, and personal strength are said to be the significance of the tiger.

Sadly, in this human-dominated world where forests and wildlife are continuously shrinking with growing demand in the black market for tiger hunting.
