Like all other cats, tigers are meat eaters. They eat chiefly deer, antelope, and monkeys. But some eat human beings. As a rule, unless other food is scarce, tigers do not eat people. Some tigers, however, become man eaters when they get old.
Tigers are common animals in zoos in all parts of the world. Tigers stand captivity well. The tiger in the zoo is a real aristocrat. It does not perform tricks to attract attention as monkeys do. A tiger does not beg for food like bears and elephants. And it does not stand looking stupid like a hippopotamus!
