National Animal



The magnificent tiger, Panthera tigris is a striped animal.

It has a thick yellow coat of fur with dark stripes.

The combination of grace, strength, agility and enormous power has earned the tiger its pride of place as the national animal of India.

Out of eight races of the species known, the Indian race, the Royal Bengal Tiger, is found throughout the country except in the north-western region and also in the neighbouring countries, Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh.

To check the dwindling population of tigers in India, 'Project Tiger' was launched in April 1973. 

So far, 27 tiger reserves have been established in the country under this project, covering an area of 37,761 sq km.

Lion was the national animal of India till 1972. Later on, it was replaced by Tiger.
