How Fast Does a Tiger Run?

The biggest members of the cat family, noted for their strength and might, are tigers. There are now five

tiger subspecies, and they are all endangered. Buffalo, deer, and other big animals are prey for tigers. 

Tigers are able to run at a high pace for brief periods of time in order to grab their prey. Tigers can run at high

speeds of 49 to 65 kph (35 to 40 mph), while weighing up to 500 pounds and hundreds of kilos. Only over

short distances can they maintain their pace. They can also leap 9 to 10

meters (30 to 33 feet), which puts them slightly short of mountain lions in terms of height.
