Artist's Description

Malayan Tiger

Taken at the El Paso Zoo in Texas using a Powershot SX40HS

The Malayan tiger was only identified as being a separate subspecies from the Indochinese tiger in 2004.

While morphologically similar to the Indochinese tiger, the Malayan tiger is smaller, being more similar in size to the Sumatran tiger.

It is found only in the southern part of the Malay Peninsula, that is, in the southern tip of Thailand and the Malaysian Peninsular.

What are the main threats to the Malayan tiger?

Logging operations and development of roads pose a big threat to tiger habitat in the Taman Negara Landscape.

Moreover, conversion of forests to agriculture or commercial plantations has resulted in more frequent encounters between tigers and livestock.

The cost for farmers can be high: for example, livestock loss due to tigers is estimated to have cost more than US$400,000 from 1993-2003 in Terengganu, one of the poorest areas in Peninsular Malaysia.

In retaliation, tigers are often killed by authorities or angry villagers, or else captured and put in zoos. Tigers killed as “conflict” animals often end up sold on the black market, creating a link between human-tiger conflict and poaching.
