Magnificent Beast by Manfred Belau

I was born in the year of the Tiger and it is my favourite animals. I hope this reworked photo does him justice!

The Sumatran Tiger is only found on the island of Sumatra!It is the darkest, smallest of the Tigers, and therefore suitable for its rainforest habitat. Up to 2.4 m head to tail and 90 kg measures in comparison to the Amur Tiger (3.3 m– 300 kg) relative small, lol. I have only ever seen a Sumatran Tiger. There are only 240 left in the wild! So sad.

Inspired by the year of the Tiger!
