Tiger

Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) male, "Conrad", born 3.5.12 and weighing 260 lbs. This rare tiger subspecies is considered Critically Endangered.

Zoo Facts: The smallest subspecies, Sumatran Tigers, are now the focus of environmentalists' attention since this animal is critically endangered and has to be protected in the wild. Although the Sumatran Tiger faces few threats in the wild, it suffers greatly from poaching and habitat destruction. Its body parts and pelt have always been hunted for as "essential" constituents of medicines.

 

Nowadays, the population of the Sumatran Tiger is about 400 species. Some animals live in zoos in Europe, Australia, and North America.

Sumatran Tiger -

The Sumatran tiger is the smallest tiger in the world, a rare subspecies that inhabits the Indonesian island of Sumatra.

 

Distinguished by heavy black stripes, orange coats, slightly larger manes, and they are very good swimmers. Sadly the Sumatran Tiger is vulnerable to extinction.

 

Sumatran Tiger was classified as critically endangered by IUCN in 2008. The population is estimated to be less than 500 in the wild today. Tigers face unrelenting poachers, accelerated deforestation due to high logging activities taking place in their natural habitat, causing loss of their habitat and prey.

Three very rare and endangered Sumatran Tigers live in Burgers Zoo, Arnhem, the Netherlands. The female Sumatran Tigers (Hujan, Bayu and Deru) are born in late September 2006 in Chessington Zoo, great London, England. They were moved to Burgers Zoo where it is hoped they will continue the breeding of this endangered species.

 

The Sumatran Tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is a subspecies of tiger found on the Indonesian island of Sumatra.

The Sumatran Tiger is the smallest of all extant tiger subspecies. Male Sumatran Tigers average 204 cm (6 feet, 8 inches) in length from head to tail and weigh about 136 kg. Females average 198 cm (6 feet, 6 inches) in length and weigh about 91 kg.

Its stripes are narrower than other subspecies of tigers' stripes, and it has a more bearded and maned appearance, especially the males.

Its small size makes it easier to move through dense rain forests.

Sumatran Tigers commonly prey on larger ungulates, like wild boar, tapir and deer, and sometimes also smaller animals, like fowl, and fish.

According the Tiger Information Centre and the World Wildlife Fund there are no more than 500 of these tigers left in the wild with some estimates considerably lower. The continuing loss of habitat is intensifying the crises to save this tiger.

In de Rimba (Aziatische landschap) van Burgers Zoo in Arnhem leven drie Sumatraanse Tijgers, de zusters Hujan, Bayu and Deru, geboren eind september 2006 in Chessington Zoo (regio Londen) in Engeland. Zodra de tijgerinnen geslachtsrijp zijn, zal er een mannetje komen en één of twee van de dames naar een ander dierenpark gaan. Op deze manier hoopt Burgers Zoo een bijdrage te leveren aan het behouden van deze zeldzame en ernstig bedreigde diersoort, zoals Burgers Zoo al uiterst succesvol is met de eveneens bedreigde Sri Lankaanse panters.

 

De sumatraanse tijger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is een ondersoort van de tijger die alleen voorkomt op Sumatra. Deze ondersoort is kleiner dan de andere ondersoorten en heeft een donkerbruine kleur. De mannetjes kunnen een totaallengte van 204 cm en een gewicht van 136 kg bereiken, de vrouwtjes 198 cm en 91 kg. Verder is de vacht donkeroranje. Het strepenpatroon bestaat vaak uit twee parallelle rijen.

Vroeger kwam dit dier voor op heel Sumatra, maar tegenwoordig zijn er volgens het Tiger Information Centre en het Wereld Natuurfonds (WWF) nog maar 500 exemplaren over, waarvan 400 in het wild._________________________________________________________________________________

The tiger (Panthera tigris) is a member of the Felidae family; the heaviest of the four "big cats" in the genus Panthera. Native to much of eastern and southern Asia, the tiger is an apex predator and an obligate carnivore. Reaching up to 4 metres (13 ft) in total length and weighing up to 300 kilograms (660 pounds), the larger tiger subspecies are comparable in size to the biggest extinct felids.Aside from their great bulk and power, their most recognizable feature is the pattern of dark vertical stripes that overlays near-white to reddish-orange fur, with lighter underparts. The largest subspecies of tiger is the Siberian tiger.

The original photo of this tiger was taken by lemperleconnie.

 

Please visit Connie's photostream. You will be so glad that you did.

 

This tiger was done in Photoshop CS2, hand drawn using a mouse. Layers were used for various parts of the tiger. The eye was a separate layer, as were the ears, face, muzzle, whiskers and body were separate. Remember it is easier to trash a layer than to trash the entire piece. The background was also a separate layer.

 

Love and Peace

Siberian tiger (Pantherea tigris altaica)

These are the the largest & most powerful cats in the world,but they are now,alas,an endangered species. It is estimated that there is only some 400 - 500 of these magnificent creatures left in the wild.

Taken at the W H F site in Kent.

Tigers are the largest of all naturally occurring cat species. On average an adult male will reach weights of up to 500 pounds and have a length (from head to tip of tail) of 122 inches, while standing 40 inches at the shoulder.

 

They live in small pockets mainly in woodland habitat within their range, and can be found in some parts of Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Russia, Nepal, Vietnam and Thailand.

 

In the wild these Tigers generally live for 10 to 15 years, but in zoos they can be expected to live for up to 20 years or more.

 

This is Rasul, a tiger at IEAS where I volunteer at (www.bigcat.org). This isn't an angry expression.

He just sniffed the old Christmas tree behind him and this was his reaction. If you ever make the trip to IEAS, he will come up to the cage and say hello.

Absolutely love Tigers, waited all day for this shot of him because he was hiding all day but spotted him high in the trees just before going home, i was thinking the sun had just come out for the first time all day he was watching for the sunset. LOL
