The South China Tiger
Scientific Name: Panthera Tigris Amoyensis
The South China tiger population was estimated to number 4,000 individuals in the early 1950s. Today the South China tiger is considered by scientists to be “functionally extinct,” as it has not been sighted in the wild for more than 25 years. Their habitiat is the Southeast China-Hainan Moist Forests, and they are now found in zoos and breeding centers.
