The Bengal Tiger is a quite common, but highly symbolic animal in India. They are very powerful and dangerous, weighing up to 325 kgs and more than 3 meters long. They usually feed on ungulates, rarely on smaller prey, and supposedly also on other predators, if needed. Only wounded or starved tigers may attack men to feed, but they generally don't wander out of their territory. Man-eating tigers are rare enough so that the few of them recorded in history became legendary, and starred in famous novels and hunting tales.
