The tiger is the largest species in the cat family (Felidae).[1] Native to much of eastern and southern Asia, they are characterised by their bright orange, black-striped coats and white underbellies.[1]

A tiger is one possible corporeal form of the Patronus Charm.[2][3]

History

An image of a tiger's face was featured on the cover of the book How to Tame Tigers by Vindictus Viridian.[4] This book was available for sale at Flourish and Blotts in 1992.[4]

When Harry Potter first saw Hermione Granger's part-Kneazle cat, Crookshanks, in 1993, he described him as being "either a very big cat or quite a small tiger."[5]

A painting of a roaring tiger hung in the Grand Staircase at Hogwarts.[6]
