Bengal Tiger Habitat
Bengal tigers are named for “Bengal” a geographical
region in which the big cats use to flourish. Bengal
was located in the top right corner of India, an area
more commonly known as Bangladesh and West Bengal.
While the Bengal Tiger is named for this region the
Bengal Tiger can also be found in Nepal, Burma (Mynamar),
Tibet and other parts of India.
Overcrowding in the areas where the Bengal Tiger once
flourished has drastically reduced their numbers. The
natural habitat of the Bengal Tiger has been significantly
reduced in size forcing them to into protected reserves
in order to survive.
The Bengal Tiger habitat is varied with grasslands,
tropical rainforests, scrub forests, wet and dry deciduous
forests as well as mangroves.
