Sumatran Tiger

The Sumatran Tiger is the smallest of the Tiger subspecies with males averaging 2.4 metres in length from head to tail and weighing around 120kg. The Sumatran Tiger’s size allows it to move through the forest quickly. Its stripes are also thinner and darker than other Tigers, assisting with camouflage in the shadows. The white spots on the back of a Tiger’s ears are called ‘eye spots’ or ‘predator spots’. These spots are believed to function as a set of false eyes used to trick a predator approaching from behind into believing that the tiger is looking directly at them. They also help female Tigers and cubs to keep track of each other in dim forests at night.
Did you know?
Sumatran Tigers have partial webbing between their toes, which makes them very good swimmers.
