The definition of word "tiger":
+1 rate 1. Panthera tigris; also Neofelis tigris or Leo tigris, great cat of Asia, the largest member of the cat family (Felidae). Like the lion, leopard and others, the tiger is one of the big or roaring, cats; it is rivaled only by the lion in strength and ferocity. The tiger is thought to have originated in northern Eurasia and to have moved southward; its present range extends from the Russian Far East through parts of China, India and Southeast Asia. There are about seven or eight generally accepted races of tiger. Of these, the Javan tiger, Bali tiger and Caspian tiger are believed to be extinct; the Chinese tiger is near extinction and the Sumatran, Siberian and Indian subspecies are listed in the Red Data Book as definitely endangered. The size and the characteristic colour and striped markings of the tiger vary according to locality and race. Tigers of the south are smaller and more brightly coloured than those of the north. The Bengal tiger (P. tigris tigris) and those of the islands of Southeast Asia, for example, are bright reddish tan, beautifully marked with dark, almost black, transverse stripes; the underparts, inner sides of the limbs, the cheeks and a large spot over each eye are whitish. The very large and very rare Siberian tiger (P. tigris altaica) of northern China and Russia, however, has longer, softer and paler fur. There are a few black and white tigers and one pure white tiger has been recorded. The tiger has no mane, but in old males the hair on the cheeks is rather long and spreading. The male tiger is larger than the female and may attain a shoulder height of about 1 m (3.3 feet); a length of about 2.2 m, excluding a tail of about 1 m and a weight of about 160230 kg (350500 pounds) or a maximum of about 290 kg. The tiger inhabits grassy and swampy districts and forests; it also haunts the ruins of buildings such as courts and temples. A powerful, generally solitary cat, it swims well and appears to enjoy bathing. Under stress, it may climb trees. The tiger hunts by night and preys on a variety of animals, including deer, wild hog and peafowl. Healthy large mammals are generally avoided, although there have been recorded instances of the tiger having attacked elephants and adult buffalo. Cattle are sometimes taken from human habitations. An old or disabled tiger or a tigress with cubs may find human beings an easier prey and become a man-eater. In warm regions the tiger produces young at any time of year; in cold regions it bears its cubs in spring. Litter size is usually two or three and gestation averages 113 days. The cubs are striped and remain with the mother until about the second year, when they are nearly adult and are able to kill prey for themselves. The tigress does not breed again until her cubs are independent. The average life span of a tiger is about 11 years. Because it is so closely related, the tiger can be crossbred in captivity with the lion; the offspring of such matings are called tigons when the sire is a tiger and ligers when the sire is a lion. The tiger has been the subject of much folklore and superstition. It has been hunted for sport and for fur. In parts of its range it is valued for the supposed curative, protective or aphrodisiac properties of various parts of its anatomy. Other animals sometimes called tigers are the clouded leopard or clouded tiger; the puma or deer tiger and the sabre-toothed cat.

rate 13. Tamil Tigers; Guerrilla organization seeking to establish an independent Tamil state in northern and eastern Sri Lanka. Formed in 1972, it is considered one of the world's most sophisticated and tightly organized insurgent groups. By 1985 it controlled the port of Jaffna and most of the Jaffna Peninsula in northern Sri Lanka. After losing control of Jaffna in 1987, it carried out several attacks, including the assassinations of the Sri Lankan president and the former Indian prime minister and a suicide bombing that killed 100 people in the capital of Colombo. Negotiations between the Tigers and the government broke down in the mid-1990s and fighting subsequently intensified until February 2002 when a permanent cease-fire agreement was signed.
rate 14. Tasmanian tiger or thylacine; Extinct, slender, fox-faced marsupial (Thylacinus cynocephalus,family Thylacinidae), 40–50 in. (100–130 cm) long. It was yellowish brown, with dark bars on the back and rump. It hunted at night for wallabies and birds. The female carried her young in a shallow pouch. Once found on the Australian mainland and New Guinea, it was confined to Tasmania in historical times, when competition with the dingo led to its disappearance from the mainland. Europeans in Tasmania hunted it to protect their sheep; the last known individual died in captivity in 1936.
rate 15. orig. Eldrick Woods; born Dec. 30, 1975, Cypress, Calif., United States U.S. golfer. The child of a Thai mother and an African American father, Woods was a golf prodigy and won the first of three consecutive United States Junior Amateur Championships (1991–93) when he was 15 years old. In 1994 (at age 18) he became the youngest winner of the United States Amateur competition, which he also won in 1995 and 1996. In 1997 Woods (age 21) became the youngest player and the first of African or Asian descent ever to win the Masters Tournament, winning by a record margin of 12 strokes. Winner of five other PGA tournaments in 1997, Woods became the youngest player ever ranked first in world golf competition. On July 23, 2000, Woods became the fifth player; after Gene Sarazen, Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan and Gary Player; in golf history and the youngest, to complete the career grand slam of the four major championships. (The modern grand slam comprises the Masters, the United States Open, the British Open and the PGA Championship.)
rate 16. Reddish tan, striped great cat (Panthera tigris) of forests, grasslands and swamps in eastern Russia, South Asia, Sumatra and a few small parts of China. Tigers are solitary, nocturnal hunters, preying on medium-sized mammals (e.g., deer). Locality and subspecies determine size, colour and stripes. Southern tigers, such as the Bengal tiger (P. tigris tigris), are smaller and more brightly coloured than northern ones, such as the rare Siberian tiger (P. tigris altaica). Males grow to more than 3 ft (1 m) high and 7 ft (2.2 m) long, excluding the 3-ft (1-m) tail and may weigh 350–640 lb (160–290 kg). Tigers live about 11 years. The persistent use of tiger parts as tonics or medicines, despite evidence refuting their efficacy, is rooted in the awe that the cat has inspired for millennia. Although internationally protected, tigers are seriously endangered; their populations shrank by more than 90% in the last century and three subspecies are now extinct.
