However, it is believed that one branch of the family travelled to Asia roughly two million years go, eventually evolving into the striped predators that sit atop the food chain in areas of India, Nepal and elsewhere today.


Although this is the common belief among researchers, no one knows for definite why tigers chose long ago to migrate from their homeland and never return.
