About Me

Scientific Name Panthera tigris sumatrae

Description

The Sumatran tiger is the smallest of the tiger subspecies as compared to the Siberian tiger which is the largest. Sumatran male tigers average 8 feet in length (2.4 meters) from head to tail and weigh about 265 pounds (120 kilograms). Females average 7 feet in length (2.2 meters) and weigh about 200 pounds (90 kilograms). The smaller size of the Sumatran tiger makes it easier to move quickly through the jungle.

Fun Facts

  • Webbing between their toes, when spread, enables the Sumatran tiger to be very fast swimmer.
  • The tiger is one of only two cats that enjoys being in water (the other is South America’s jaguar).
