Sumatran Tiger

The Sumatran Tiger

Less than 400 left in Sumatra.

Sumatra is the only island that allows tigers, elephants, orangutans, and rhinos to live amongst one another. With the loss of any of those existing animals, it would cause an imbalance in the biodiversity of the Sumatran forest.

All tigers need a wide space to live in. Because the forests they live in will continue to be cut down as well as the natives hunting them for their skin and bones, the Sumatran tiger population will continue to diminish.

Panthera Tigris Sumatrae

The Sumatran Tiger is the smallest kind of tiger.

Other native Indonesian tigers that are already extinct for the same reasons include the Javan and the Bali Tigers.

With organizations like WWF, they are trying to reduce the demand for tiger parts as well as trying to decrease the amount of tiger poaching incidents in Indonesia.

Their habitat include forests, freshwater swamp forests, and peat swamps. Their diet consists of deer, wild boar, rabbits, and birds.
