The latest studies revealed that tigers in Nepal started moving around mainly at nights to avoid contact with humans. Tigers and big cats in general are active at day and night, but in Chitwan National Park they noticed tigers taking the night shifts. The main reason for such behaviour is "a very fundamental conflict over resources", said Neil Carter from Michigan State University. Both humans and tigers are after the same resources and this can lead to conflicts, only the tigers decided to avoid them and the best way to do so, is to operate at night, when humans are mostly inactive and at sleep.

At the start of 20th Century there were about 100,000 tigers populating the Earth, until the date tiger population dropped to some what 3,000. that's a 97% decline of a specie. The remaining tigers are forced to live in small areas that's why their survival depends on being able to share space with humans and by the looks of it they are mastering the skill pretty well.
