The Siberian tiger or Amur tiger is the largest subspecies of the tiger and therefore also the largest cat in the world. They are critically endangered. There are only around 500 individuals left. The few wild ones inhabit some regions in the Russian Far East.
The Siberian tiger is perfectly adapted to the environmental conditions. With their winter and summer fur they can resist temperature from -45 to +30 degrees. The Siberian tiger has a life expectancy of 20 years. They are carnivores and mainly eat cloven-hoofed animals.
The following photos show the two 6 months old tigers Alisha and Dragan.
