Siberian Tiger

This tiger is also known as multiple names such as the Amur/Korean/Altaic/North China/Manchurian Tiger, and is the northernmost tiger. It is confined to a small area in far eastern Siberia (Primorsky Krai and the Khabarovsk Krai, these areas are protected). This is the largest subspecies, they have a head and body length of 190-230 cm for males and 160-180cm for females, and the tail length is around 60-110 cm; an average weight is about 227 kg (the heaviest tiger had s record of 384 kg). Siberian tigers will prey on: moose, wild boar, sika deer, roe deer, musk deer and Manchurian wapiti. The Amur tiger has a pale golden hue thick coat with less stripes than most tigers. With a population of 450-500, they are the largest undivided tiger population in the world. However the western population (the extinct Caspian Tiger) may have been split up from the Siberian Tigers due to human intervention).
