Tigers are easily distinguished from other large cats by their black stripes against their orange and tan backgrounds and white underbellies.
Tigers were designed with longer hindlimbs than forelimbs, which allow them to leap. Ever since the Fall, they have used their powerful forelimbs to drag down prey while they use their hindlimbs to jump onto their prey. These limbs also make them very powerful swimmers. They can cross rivers that are up to 5 miles (8 km) wide.
