Here is some detailed information on the sumatran tiger.
The Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is a subspecies of
tiger found on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Recent genetic testing has revealed the
presence of unique genetic markers, which isolate Sumatran tigers from all mainland
subspecies. Currently, there are only 100-400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild.
The Sumatran Tiger is the smallest of all surviving tiger subspecies. Male Sumatran tigers
average 204 cm (6 feet, 8 inches) in length from head to tail and weigh about 136 kg (300
lb). Females average 198 cm (6 feet, 6 inches) in length and weigh about 91 kg (200 lb).
Its stripes are narrower than other subspecies of tigers' stripes, and it has a more
bearded and maned appearance, especially the males.
The Sumatran tiger is only found naturally in Sumatra, a large island in western
Indonesia. It lives anywhere from lowland forests to mountain forest and inhabits many
unprotected areas. Only about 400 live in game reserves and national parks, The largest
population of about 110 tigers lives in Gunung Leuser National Park. Another 100 live in
unprotected areas that will soon be lost and the rest are spread out in areas that are
quickly being lost to agriculture.
