The beauty and force of the Siberian tiger inspires respect.
Because it is able to kill animals larger than itself, it is known as one of the most feared predators.

CHARACTERISTICS
The males can reach 3,5 m in length (without the tail) and weigh up to 300 kg. The Siberian male can have an average length of 190-220 cm (without the tail) and a weigh of 180-275 kg.

BEHAVIOR
Adult tigers are territorial and solitary animals. They protect their territory insistently and mark it by using different methods. One of the main marking means is their urine with specific smell.

DIET
Tigers hunt alone by using two hunting techniques. Either they sneak towards the prey or ambush it. Usually, they chase their prey and wait it along the paths or at watering holes. They eat deer, wild boar and buffalos.

REPRODUCTION
The Siberian tiger become sexually mature when it is 4 years old. A female signals her receptiveness by leaving urine deposits and scratch marks on trees. She will spend a week with the male, during which she is receptive for three days. Gestation lasts from 3 to 3½ months. The female gives birth to 3-5 cubs which it feeds on its breast.

Ce s-a intamplat cu acel tigru siberian mare, care a fost separat de tigroaica in cusca aceea mica? L-am vazut mult timp inchis in acel spatiu mic, slabind si imbolnavindu-se pe piciore, apoi l-am cautat si nu l-am vazut nicaieri.

Buna ziua,
apreciez forma de prezentare a gradinii zoologice din Sibiu, mi s-ar parea foarte interesant si mult mai personalizat sa adaugati la fiecare animal, care banuiesc ca este listat fiindca se gaseste la zoo Sibiu, detalii despre provenienta sa, varsta, nume, etc
Cred ca asta ar face experienta vizitarii site-ului si ulterior a gradinii mult mai interesanta.
