The Bengal tiger (Panthera tigris tigris), is the most numerous tiger subspecies. By 2011, the total population was estimated at fewer than 2,500 individuals with a decreasing trend. None of the Tiger Conservation Landscapes within the Bengal tiger’s range is considered large enough to support an effective population size of 250 adult individuals. Since 2010, it has been classified as endangered by the IUCN.
As of 2010, Bengal tiger populations in India have been estimated at 1,706–1,909. As of 2014, they had reputedly increased to an estimated 2,226 individuals, but the method used in the census may not be accurate. Bengal tigers number around 440 in Bangladesh, 163–253 in Nepal, and 67–81 in Bhutan.
Bengal is traditionally fixed as the typical locality for the binomen Panthera tigris, to which the British taxonomist Reginald Innes Pocock subordinated the Bengal tiger in 1929 under the trinomen Panthera tigris tigris.
Bengal Tiger mammal. There are 36 species of cat in the world, and tigers are the largest. Hearing is their sharpest sense, five times better than humans, and their night vision is six times stronger than humans. Bengal tigers have white spots, called “flashes” on the back of their ears. These may be used to signal aggression, when the tiger swivels and flattens his ears in a confrontation. The mighty roar of a Bengal can be heard up to two miles.
