The Tiger ranks the third among the animals of the Chinese zodiac. The 12 zodiac animals are, in order: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. Each year is related to an animal sign according to a 12-year-cycle.
The most relevant years of the Tiger include 2034, 2022, 2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962, 1950, and 1938.
If you were born in one of the above calendar years, your Chinese zodiac sign is probably the Tiger, and in China you would be known as a Tiger.
However, the Chinese zodiac year is usually said to start from Chinese New Year, which ranges from late January to mid-February. Therefore, if you were born in January or February in one of the above years, you might be a Tiger, or possibly an Ox.
Additionally, if you were born in January/February in one of the years immediately following those above (2011, 1999, 1987, 1978, etc.), then you may be a Tiger or a Rabbit.
