Myanmar, authoritatively the Republic of the Union of Myanmar and furthermore known as Burma, is a nation in Southeast Asia. Myanmar is flanked by India and Bangladesh to its west, Thailand and Laos to its east and China to its north and upper east. To its south, around 33% of Myanmar's absolute edge of 5,876 km (3,651 mi) shapes a continuous coastline of 1,930 km (1,200 mi) along the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea. Its capital city is Naypyidaw, and its biggest city and previous capital is Yangon (Rangoon). Early civilisations in Myanmar incorporated the Tibeto-Burman-speaking Pyu city-states in Upper Burma and the Mon kingdoms in Lower Burma. In the ninth century, the Bamar individuals entered the upper Irrawaddy valley and, following the foundation of the Pagan Kingdom during the 1050s, the Burmese language, culture and Theravada Buddhism gradually wound up predominant in the nation. The Pagan Kingdom fell because of the Mongol attacks and a few warring states rose. In the sixteenth century, reunified by the Taungoo line, the nation was for a short period the biggest domain in the historical backdrop of Mainland Southeast Asia. The mid nineteenth century Konbaung administration decided over a zone that included current Myanmar and quickly controlled Manipur and Assam too. The British assumed control over the organization of Myanmar after three Anglo-Burmese Wars in the nineteenth century and the nation turned into a British state. Myanmar was conceded freedom in 1948, as a vote based country. Following a rebellion in 1962, it turned into a military autocracy under the Burma Socialist Program Party.

Bengal tiger (Panthera tigris tigris)

The Bengal tiger is a Panthera tigris population in the Indian subcontinent. The tiger is estimated to be available in the Indian subcontinent since the Late Pleistocene, for about 12,000 to 16,500 years. The Bengal tiger's coat is yellow to light orange, with stripes ranging from dark brown to black; the tummy and the inside parts of the appendages are white, and the tail is orange with black rings. The white tiger is a latent mutant of the tiger, which is accounted for in the wild every now and then in Assam, Bengal, Bihar, and especially from the previous State of Rewa. Be that as it may, it is not to be mistaken as an event of albinism. In fact, there is just a single completely authenticated case of a genuine albino tiger, and none of black tigers, with the conceivable exemption of one dead example examined in Chittagong in 1846. Males have an average total length of 270 to 310 cm (110 to 120 in) including the tail, while females measure 240 to 265 cm (94 to 104 in) on average. The tail is typically 85 to 110 cm (33 to 43 in) long, and on average, tigers are 90 to 110 cm (35 to 43 in) in stature at the shoulders. The heaviness of males ranges from 180 to 258 kg (397 to 569 lb), while that of the females ranges from 100 to 160 kg (220 to 350 lb). The smallest recorded loads for Bengal tigers are from the Bangladesh Sundarbans, where adult females are 75 to 80 kg (165 to 176 lb). The tiger has exceptionally forceful teeth. Its canines are 7.5 to 10 cm (3.0 to 3.9 in) long and accordingly the longest among all cats. The greatest length of its skull is 332 to 376 mm (13.1 to 14.8 in).
