About Tigers

Weigh up to 660 pounds 300 kilograms and females up to 370 pounds 167 kg and the smallest are the Sumatran tigers, with males weighing up to 260 pounds 120 kg and females weighing up to 200 pounds 90 kg. These large, predatory felines are known for their iconic orange fur and black stripes. Fur colours do range across the subspecies though, with Sumatran tigers are typically sporting the darkest coats, and Bengal tigers sometimes sporting white coats thanks to a recessive gene. Stripes can vary in colour and spacing across the subspecies as well.
