While reading an encyclopedia, a highly educated scientist realizes that he doesn’t know anything about tigers! He begins studying them until he can rattle off every tiger fact imaginable, including their habitat (jungles and marshy areas), their average weight (300-500 pounds), and their scientific name (Panthera tigris). But when he hires a guide to take him to see a tiger in person, the scientist discovers that he might not quite know everything. With deadpan humor and illustrations that perfectly complement the story, Panthera Tigris will delight nature lovers and budding scientists.
