Transcript of Indochinese Tiger
It originates in mainly five countries. These are Cambodia, Thailand, Burma (Myanmar), Laos, and Vietnam.
Ancestors and Relatives
The closest relative to an Indochinese Tiger is the lion. They can interbreed forming hybrids called ligers or tigons. An ancestor to the Indochinese Tiger is the Saber-Tooth Tiger, which probably lived during the most recent Ice Age, which ended 18,000 years ago.
Below are descriptions of what the Indochinese Tiger looks like, its habitat, and others.
Species Tigris corbetti
The Indochinese Tiger's habitat is tropical and subtropical moist broadleaf forests.
The Indochinese Tiger usually mates at age 3.5 years for a female ; while the male reaches sexual maturity at age 5 years. Indochinese tigers mate throughout the year, but most frequently during November through early April. After a gestation period of 3.5 months, roughly 103 days, a female Indochinese tiger is capable of giving birth to seven cubs. However, on average a female will only give birth to three.
A Indochinese tiger has a symbiotic relationship with wild boar. An Indochinese tiger's prey consists of these animals. The relationship is the the tiger consuming the boar. This is a mutual relationship.
Humans arer the only predator of the Indochinese Tiger. Indochinese tiger numbers are in a decline across its range because of shrinking habitats, expanding human populations, and the increasing demand for traditional medicines, folk remedies and wild meat. The Indochinese Tiger was declared endangered in 2003.
Panthera tigris corbetti
The Indochinese Tiger's height is 2.3 to 2.8 meters( 7.5 to 9 feet). Its weight is 100 kg to 195 kg (221 lbs to 440 lbs).
Tigers, such as the Indochinese tiger, have a special
adaption to their retinas, which allows more light to reflect back to their eyes, making it easier to see in the dark. They also have extremely good hearing and are able to pick up infra-sound. Another adaption is that they have large teeth and retractable claws, which allows them to kill their prey easily.
Indochinese Tigers live in the high isolated areas of the tropical rain forests.
The 2010 estimate of the Indochinese Tiger population in around 350.
Tiger: Tertiary Consumer
Pig: Secondary Consumer
Worm: Primary Consumer
Many wildlife conservation organizations carry out research and surveys to identify tiger habitat, tiger prey and tiger population numbers. They also train protected area personnel and rangers to carry out surveys, and to effectively manage protected areas where tigers are found.Lastly all hunting or poaching has become illegal. The efforts are working as surveys suggest the population has increased by almost 20 tigers.The organizations that are working on conservation of the Indochinese Tiger include WWF, Save the Tiger foundation, Wildlife conservation foundation of America, etc...
This is the Indochinese Tiger...
This baby Indochinese Tiger weighs around 6 pounds and is at the height of 1 foot 2 inches.
The teenage years of an Indochinese Tiger comes with the weight of 125 pounds and a height of 4.5 feet .
The adult weighs in at 220-440 pounds and stands at a height of 7.5-9 feet.
It is a fact that their bodies are used to make many different types of medicine in China.
The stripes on the Indochinese Tiger are very narrow compared to those of other species.
Many conservation efforts are corrupted due to the high price of tiger pelts.
Mutualism is the way two organisms of different species exist in a relationship in which each individual benefits. Similar interactions within a species are known as co-operation.
