Bengal Tiger Reproduction

Bengal Tiger Reproduction

Mating can occur at any time, but happens to be usually between November and April. The Bengal tiger females can have cubs at the age of 3-4 years; Bengal tiger males reach maturity in about 4 years. After the gestation period of 103 days, 2-5 cubs are born. Newborn babies weigh about 1 kg (2.2 lb) and are blind and helpless. The mother feeds them milk for 6-8 weeks and then the cubs are introduced to meat. The cubs depend on the mother for 1.5 years and then they start hunting on their own.
