Tigers Social Structure
By Amelia Meyer
Regardless of their subspecies or distribution, tigers are not familial creatures like humans are. They do not form families consisting of a father, mother and offspring; neither do they form packs of family members of a certain gender (as elephants form herds of female relatives, for example). Rather, the tiger is a solitary creature.
This does not mean that they will not socialise with other tigers when they come into contact with them, though. Females have specific territories, but males tend to leave their own territory and traverse the territories of various females as they hunt and look for mates.
