Why do Siberian or Amur tigers have the largest range of any tiger subspecies?
Low prey densities force them to search across vast landscapes to find food.
Where does the Siberian tiger live?
The Siberian tiger’s habitat is restricted to the Sikhote-Alin range in the Russian Far East, with small pockets in the border areas of China and possibly North Korea.
What was the first country in the world to grant full protection to tigers?
Russia became the first country in the world to grant full protection to tigers.
Across the continent of Asia in a variety of environments, including forests, grasslands and swamps
Tigers prefer to eat ungulates or hoofed animals (such as wild deer and wild pigs) but have been known to eat fish, birds, and even other predators like leopards and bears.
Tigers are threatened by growing human populations, loss of habitat, illegal hunting (of both tigers and their prey species), and expanded trade in tiger parts used as traditional medicines.
Tigers are able to eat up to 80 pounds of meat at one time.
