Artist's Description

Among the big cats, only the tiger and jaguar are strong swimmers. Tigers are often found bathing in ponds, lakes, and rivers. During the extreme heat of the day, they often cool off in pools, like this one we found just leaving the pool in Ranthambore.
Over the past century tiger numbers have fallen dramatically. Habitat losses and the extremely large-scale incidences of poaching are serious threats to the species’ survival. Since 2010, it has been classified as an endangered species by the IUCN. The total population is estimated at fewer than 2,500 individuals with a decreasing trend.
Bengal Tiger (Panthera tigris), Ranthambore National Park, India, Asia
