A group of tigers:

Though the tiger is a solitary animal, where a number of these cats occur together the correct name for the group is a 'streak' or an 'ambush' of tigers. The group shown at right would be referred to by these terms.

Tiger groups normally only occur in captivity where restrictions in space and money force captive facilities to place tigers in unnatural social groups.

In the wild, a tigress with cubs would also qualify as a streak or an ambush.
