The Sumatran Tiger is a carnivorous animal and usually hunts larger animals such as cattle, wild boar, and deer.
The Sumatran tiger is only found on the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
The Sumatran Tiger became an endangered species in 2008.
Their habitat is being invaded by humans who wish to destroy it.
The population of all tigers in general is very, very low.
Reason For Extinction
The Sumatran Tigers are on their way to extinction because of the way that humans are treating their habitat. The greed of humans is causing it. The desire to expand infrastructure is taking from the Sumatran Tiger's habitat.
If tigers go extinct than the ecosystem will be destroyed. Tiger bring the natural balance to a forest that is needed. Also from an economical standpoint if the Sumatran tigers go extinct then then the tourism industry will be hurt badly.
