The Siberian Tiger (Panthera tigris altaica), also known as the Amur Tiger, Manchurian, or North China Tiger, is a subspecies of the tiger, of the Felidae family. It is also the largest and most powerful member of the Felidae family. It is thought that the tigers originally come from Siberia.
The male Siberian tigers can weigh as much as 840 pounds, averaging 660 pounds. Females weigh 450 pounds, though some weigh 500 pounds and two have been recorded to be 520 pounds. The Siberian Tiger is usually only 2-4 inches taller at the shoulder than the Bengal tiger. Old males reach a head and the body length of 13 feet long though the usual is 9-12 feet. The Siberian Tiger is found in a very small part of eastern Russia, with a few in the nearby northern parts of Korea and China. It is very endangered and almost all over the world in zoos they are protected. There are only 500 left.
Before Amur Tigers were protected strictly in Soviet Union but when it broke there was less protection and the number came downly 400-500 left.
Amur tigers usually eat elk (Moose) , deer and cattle. But if they have little food they would have to eat brown bears and leopards. It would also eat also eats domestic dog if it is from its habitat.
The Siberian tiger can be recognized by the fur around the neck, which makes it warm. This is an adaption against the cold. Close to the winter the Siberian tigers hair grows longer so they can face the wintry weather. Source.
