Tigers are looked at as being one of the most majestic yet ferocious of all animals and this Amur (or Siberian) tiger lives up to that reputation given that it hunts brown bears which make up a small percentage of its prey. They generally tend to hunt deer, wild boar and moose and are true snow tigers whose habitat is below freezing for several months of the year.
The Amur tiger doesn’t differ much in appearance from the Bengal tiger, but lives in Far East Russian, North East China (possibly North Korea) in mountainous forests. Sadly Tigers are hunted as a trophy or for use in Chinese medicine which has seen a drastic reduction in their numbers adding them to the list of endangered animals across the world and therefore needing our help for protection.
