Siberian tiger

Panthera tigris altaica

The Siberian tiger, also known as the Amur tiger, is
the largest of all cats in the world. Siberian tigers
differ from other tigers because they have fewer,
paler stripes. They are found in a small region in the
southeast region Russia, though some exist in China
and North Korea. Due to their size and power, it has
no natural predators in its native environment. There
are thought to be less than 500 Siberian tigers left
in the wild. Habitat loss and poaching threaten the
dwindling population. Tigers make a chuffing sound
which is their version of a content purr.

The Siberian tiger mostly consumes elk, boars, bear, and deer. They also hunt smaller animals like rabbits, pikas, and fish.
