Fun Facts about the Amur Tiger
Did you know that no two tigers have the same stripes? The amur tiger’s distinctive coat is used as camouflage for stealthy hunting.
The Amur (also called Siberian) tiger is the world's largest cat. This species of tiger was once on the brink of extinction, but thanks to the Russian government banning tiger hunting, there are around 540 left in the wild today residing primarily in the northern forests of Russia.
What does Arina the Amur tiger do each day?
Arina spends her days split between any of the four areas within the tiger habitat at Howletts. She can usually be seen sunning herself on her ramp nearest to Walking with Lemurs or being admired by her many fans near the window closest to the picnic area.
What does Arina the tiger eat?
Amur tigers eat deer and wild boar
Will Arina ever go back to the wild?
Amur tigers are a pure subspecies of tiger and could be used for rewilding. However, Arina is not suitable due to her disabilities.
Where do wild tigers live?
Most of the remaining wild amur tigers can be found in the northern forests of Russia as these forests have the lowest human density of any other habitat in the world for tigers. The eastern birch forest provides a complete ecosystem for them to thrive.
