How tiger survive Tigers have a harder time surviving in the wild because they are not camouflaged like other animals. What they do have is a way to protect them and they have a lot more prey then predators. They hunt in heavily wooded areas, so that it is easier for them to not be seen and still get food. They eat a lot of meat, which gives them a lot of protein. Protein turns into a lot of energy for the tiger.
