Sumatran tiger

Sumatran Tiger

Tigers are carnivores they eat range of animals upto 20 kgs
They eat moose, deer species, pigs, cows, horses, buffalos and goats.

Tigres have many different habitats such as tropical forests, evergreen forests, woodlands and mangrove swamps to grasslands, savannah and rocky country.

The Sumatran Tiger has thin stripes along its coat which helps it camouflage in the grass.They also have webbed paws which can help swim. Their paws have five toes and each of them have sharp claws. The average length for a male sumatran tiger is 2.4 metres and its weight is 120 kilograms. And for the female is  2.2 metres and it weighs 90 kilograms.

How it hunts:
The Sumatran Tiger hunts by getting close to the animal and then jumps out and eat them. They creep up to the animal slowly, keeping low on the ground and using it striped  coat to camouflage with the grass.

The last of the Sumatran Tigers population is less than 400. They are right now living on the Island of Sumatra.

the threats that are driving tigers closer to extinction is habitat loss, conflict with humans, and poaching to feed to the illegal trade in tiger parts and products.
Cause for their status:
They are endangered because more and more people are killing tigers for their teeth to sell at auctions and museums people also kill them for their fur to make carpets, bags, jackets and blankets.

How can we help:
We can help tigers by stop destroying their habitats we can stop poaching them for their fur and stop killing tigers just to illegally sell their body parts for money and finally we can donate to WWF (world wildlife fund) and help raise money for them to stop this madness.
