I am a carnivorous mammal, the biggest of all felines!
I mostly hunt elks, boars or buffalo by pouncing on their back by surprise.
The reddish-yellow and black of my fur is unique to each individual: my stripes are like my fingerprints.
I live in forests and steppes of South and East Asia, and am most abundant in India. However numbers have been drastically reduced in the last few decades.
I am now protected but the shrinking of my habitat and poaching for traditional Chinese medicine keeps me on the endangered list.
