Every tiger has a unique stripe pattern, just like human fingerprints. It helps the tigers camouflage themselves and blend into the dense forests when stalking their prey.
Along with their thick fur, Siberian Tigers also have almost a mane around their face as the hair grows most densely there. Extra fur on their paws acts like snow boots to protect them from the cold and ice in their wintery habitats.
Their claws can grow up to 4 inches in length, making it impossible for captive food to escape them. Just like our small domestic cats, they can retract those claws, and they do the same things that our cats do to sharpen them, needing and working the shaggy rock in their terrain.
They also use their claws to communicate with each other and to mark their territory. They create scrape marks by raking the ground with their hind feet and leave claw marks on trees. You can also see this behavior at work in your cat when they scratch the side of the sofa or the back of a chair.
Big paws, big claws, big teeth. Tigers have canines that can grow up to three inches long. A male Siberian Tiger can weigh up to 700 lbs and can consume up to 100 lbs of food at one sitting.
Like house cats, they have whiskers that they can use to find their way in the dark, and they also have a particular reflective layer at the back of their eyes that increases their night vision. Their huge paws act like snowshoes across the snow, and they also don't mind getting wet.
Tigers are constantly in motion, so it is rare to capture them like this, still and silent, just surveying the view around them.
