A Tiger's Appetite

You might thing you have a big appetite, but a tiger can eat up to 60 pounds of meat in one night.

 Most of the time a tiger will consume about 12 pounds of meat during a meal, but there are times when that number is significantly higher, reaching up to 60 pounds of meat at once.  Normally, the cat will eat until it is full, then cover the remaining carcass with dirt and leaves.  They will continue to feed of the same piece of meat until it is gone.
