Do Tigers Purr?

Do tigers purr like domestic cats? The short answer is No! They have a wide range of sounds, many of which travel long distances. The tiger does meow. There is an overlap there with the domestic cat! I have a page on the sounds a tiger makes.

Sorry that this is so short but there is nothing more for me to say!

Except... To mention an interesting little point: it is said that the tiger roar is not a true roar and that the tiger is not one of the roaring cats (Gustav Peters). Figure that one out! It sounds like a roar to me. Let's say the tiger roar is different from the roar of the lion, leopard and jaguar.
