Sumatran tigers are the smallest of all tiger species and are only found in Indonesia..A survey in 1998 showed that there were only 400 -500 of them remaining wild..But now, their real numbers are not revealed and are believed to be below 200. A fully grown male Sumatran can weigh around 136kg(300lbs) and measure 204cms(6feet, 9 inches). Similarly a female may weigh up to 91kgs (200lbs)and 198cms(6 feet, 2 inches).
Their smaller size makes them very swift and agile in moving through the thick dense Indonesian forests. They also have a unique webbing in between their toes helping them swim faster. Their prey ranges from wild boar, monkeys, Deers, Malayan Tapirs, fish, fowls and Orangutans..They sometimes prey on wild mice and other small animals when the larger prey is scarce.
