Nature can be beautiful and cruel. Whenever there is a heatwave going on, the chances on forest forest increases. Whenever there are hurricanes, the chances on floods in lower tiger habitats (like the Sundarbans) increase. But nature can be also rears its (ugly) head in small incidents, like two tigers fighting for a territory, or a tiger that kills the cubs of a tigress because they have the wrong father.
A natural disaster is a major adverse event resulting from natural processes of the earth; think about floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, storms, and other geologic processes. All have a devastating effect.
Tigers hardly have enemies in other species, besides humans. But there are many incidents between tigers, sometimes with a deadly result. Think also about the many cubs that are being killed by a tigers, who is not the father of the cubs.
