Even during the cold climate in the winter, the tiger is very active.” (bioweb.uwlax.edu) They live in a forest of trees and bushes, but prefer areas with tall grass for hunting (bioweb.uwlax.edu). “They prefer to hunt during the night. They do this because it is easier for them to sneak up on their prey and pounce on them.” (bioweb.uwlax.edu) The enormous cat can run up to fifty miles an hour but only for very short distances (bioweb.uwlax.edu). “Only about one in every ten attempts to kill prey is successful. Tigers' powerful jaws and weight help pull the animal down. It kills the prey by biting the prey's neck breaking it or suffocating it. They mainly hunt wild boar, elk and deer, but if food is short, they will eat pretty much anything.” (bioweb.uwlax.edu) Siberian tigers are [impressive] creatures (bioweb.uwlax.edu). “To survive winter the tiger has fine but long fur and a layer of fat that allows it to stand the bitter cold. The coat is lighter in color than other tigers and it has large paws which act rather like snow shoes.” (amur.org) “Their coat is striped, yellow-orange in color and has white on its tail, underside, back and legs.

Mating season lasts from the beginning of December through the end of January, but tigers only mate for three to seven days before they part. After mating the female will usually attack her partner, driving him away… After a gestation period of three and a half months, a litter of about two to four cubs are born in the early spring, but usually only one or two survives. The cubs are born blind, toothless and are about the size of a house cat.” (bioweb.uwlax.edu) There are many threats that contribute to the endangerment of the tigers. The main threats are poaching, habitat loss and isolation. “They are killed for their parts. China and Taiwan believe that tiger parts hold cures for many...
