How Long Do Tigers Sleep?

Tigers, despite their massive size, need to relax and sleep in order to hunt and attack on their prey with strength

when the time is perfect. Tigers often sleep for 16 to 20 hours every day in order to effectively use

their energy. They are able to save their energy for when they need it the most—to hunt. While some of us humans

may fantasize about having such lengthy sleep cycles, tigers make the most of this privilege by

staying awake and prepared while in search of food. After all, a well-rested animal is better able to learn the

art of hunting. Fortunately, the tigers are quite adept at knowing when to sleep and

conserve their energy in order to remain alert when the appropriate situation arises.
