Tiger, from Should to Hip

Tiger, from Should to Hip

tiger from shoulder to hip. "Meat can be digested far more efficiently than grass. It requires a far less complicated gut to convert meat to protein than it does to convert grass to protein. Thus tigers have shortened guts (four times their body length, as compared with five times in an omnivorous fox) and comparatively small and light abdomens, a factor that contributes to the tiger's ability to accelerate quickly when in pursuit of prey." from "Tiger-The Ultimate Guide", 2004 by Valmik Thapar
