Endangered & Invasive Species By: Maddie Owen Wanted Alive: Siberian Tiger Wanted Alive: Siberian Tiger Wanted Alive: Siberian Tiger Wanted Dead: White Spotted Jellyfish Wanted Dead: White Spotted Jellyfish Wanted Alive: Siberian Tiger Wanted Dead: White Spotted Jellyfish Scientific Name: Panthera Tigeris Altaica Habitat Current Global Locations Fun Facts Scientific Name: Phylloriza Punctata Habitat Crimes Committed
Kingdom: Animilia Phylum: Chordata Class: Mammalia Order: Carnivora Family: Felidae
Genus: Panthera Species: Panthera Tigris Taxonomy Appearance Siberian tigers are the largest big cat. They weigh up to 700 pounds and are between 4.5 to 9.5 feet long. They are orange with black stripes and each tiger has a different stripe pattern. Their stomachs and faces have white markings. Their eyes are forward facing giving them great binocular vision. Siberian tigers live alone. They typically live in Boreal forests or the Taiga. These regions are very dense forests filed with coniferous trees.These regions are bordered by the treeless tundra. Biotic Factors Abiotic Factors Climate change is one of the biggest abiotic factors that effects the Siberian tiger. A biotic factor that is effecting Siberian tigers is that their normal prey are dying or being forced to move due to habitat loss. Their typical forest habitat is disappearing due to climate change. The Siberian tiger is currently found in the eastern provinces of Primorski and Khabarovski in Russia. They could also be located in boarder towns in China and North Korea. Population Now The estimated size of the population says that there is between 450 and 500 Siberian tigers living in the wild today. Endangered The Siberian tiger is endangered because poachers kill them for their fur. They are illegally traded for their body parts that are used in traditional chinese medicine. They are also endangered due to loss of their habitat because of humans. Preservation Russia has put together very strict laws against poaching to try and save the Siberian tiger. Organizations like WWF are also trying to help preserve these animals. One of two cats that fish and swim
More Siberian tigers live only in captivity than in the wild
Siberian tigers can easily reach a speed of 40mph
Female Siberian tigers give birth to 3 to 5 cubs a litter
Siberian tigers scratch on trees to leave their scent Taxonomy Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Cnidaria
Class: Scyphozoa
Order: Rhizostomeae
Family: Magistiidae
Genus: Phyllorhiza
Species: Punctata Appearance The white spotted jellyfish is easy to recognize. It is semi-transparent with a round bell. The bell is covered in evenly spaced white spots. There are also white spots on the end of the tentacles. The white spotted jellyfish lives in oceans and coastal waters. Biotic Factors One of the biotic factors that effect the white spotted jellyfish is that they have one natural predator which is the Pacific Region Snail. Abiotic Factors White Spotted Jellyfish live in warm tropical waters, but when the water temperatures changes the jellyfish are effected. The White Spotted Jellyfish preys on native species in the Pacific Ocean. It also has a negative impact on the shrimp industry by clogging nets and damaging fishing equipment. They are also eating large amounts of zooplankton. Origin The White Spotted Jellyfish originates in the Philippines and Australia. Suspected Hideouts The White Spotted Jellyfish probably made it to the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico on ships through the Panama Canal. It spreads so easily here because the tropical waters and no natural predators allows it to flourish. Removal The removal of the white spotted jellyfish has not become a main issue because with harmless venom, they pose no threat to humans. Wanted Dead: White Spotted Jellyfish Fun Facts The White Spotted Jellyfish is asexual, so it "clones" itself
Their sting is so mild that some might not even notice it
