over long distances. Roaring is used to signal the 

capture of large prey or females calling to their cubs. 

These roars may be heard from 3 km. away.

 

Symbiotic relationship:

The Siberian Tigers prey is a Sika Deer, which

eventually gets eaten.

 

Related Species:

The Lion, Leopard, and cheetah are three species

related to the Siberian Tiger.

 

Extra Info: 

The Siberian Tiger occupies a very large territory. 

Ranges of more than 4,000 square miles have been

recorded. The tiger may occupy the same territory 

for many years if food sources are stables within the

area. If prey is scarce, it often migrtes many miles

to find better food.The Siberian Tiger spends alot of

time hunting for food because only one in ten of its

hunting trips are succsessful.

 

Both males and females mark the boundries of their

territory with urine and by scratching trees.

But only the male defends his territory against other

males, concentrating on the most important things

such as a boundry close to a females territory, or an

area rich in food.

 

The male tiger is solitary, shunning other males. He

allows tigers of either gender to pass through his

territoy, but is more tolerant of females and their cubs.

 

The Lifespan of a Siberian Tiger is normally 25 years.
