Tigers feed on a variety of medium to large sized mammals including deer, pigs and buffalo. Due to years of hunting for sport, skins and bones used for traditional medicines, wild tiger populations are near extinction. Loss of habitat continues to threaten this species' future. The Siberian tiger is native to regions of Russia as well as portions of southeast Asia. Weighing as much as 800 lbs. the Siberian sub-species is the largest of the tigers. The Bengal tiger is found in India. This sub-species' population has increased since anti-poaching efforts and strict wildlife laws were enacted in the 1970's.
