Tigers live in the rainforest. There is a difference between the jungle and the forest. The forest is all occupied with dense growth of tall trees while in jungle many large plants grow on land. Tigers fancy living in the grasslands, savannas, and mangrove swamps. They will prefer to make homes in habitats which are abundant in water.
Bengal and Sumatran tigers would thrive in dense rainforests. However, much of the tiger’s habitat is disappeared over the past hundred years. Deforestation is probably the major cause of habitat destruction. As human population grows, the forests on the outskirts become redundant each passing year. Tigers are the permanent residents of forest or the jungle.
