[Gk.] A carnivorous-quadruped, like the lion in all its habits, except that it roams about by day as well as by night. In color it is yellow, with black stripes across the body. Its body is longer and stronger than the lion's, but shaped more like a cat's. It has no mane. Its under part, as well as the chest and throat, are white, and so are the long hairs on each side of its face. The tail is like a cat's in shape, and has no tuft at the end. The tiger is found chiefly in India and Ceylon. Indian princes hunt it with elephants.
