Artist's Description

Amur Tiger cub at 3 weeks old-I am extremely fortunate enough to have a small role in her hand rearing. Her mother rejected her right after she cleaned her off so the vet staff at the zoo has begun the task of hand rearing one of the more endangered species of tiger. She weighs just over five pounds and has the bluest eyes right now until they focus and start to clear up. She doesn’t have an official name yet, but I call her Isis just because it seems to fit her beauty and grace.

Amur tiger (Panthera tigris altaica), one of 5 remaining subspecies of tiger. The Amur tiger (formally known as Siberian) has the longest pelage (coat) of any of the other subspecies due to the cold climate that they live in. All tigers have four canines, and they only ever turn ‘man-hunter’ when they are old or sick and more than two of the canines are broken. The Amur tigers are the largest of all tigers, weighing in at as much as 700 pounds-though 400-600 is more common.

Note-this is just one of many organizations helping tigers!
