The Siberian Tiger
Transcript of The Siberian Tiger
Subspecies: Altaica Panthera Tigris Altaica Digestive System Physical Characteristics Skeletal and Muscle System Respitory and Circulatory System Adaptations/facts Habitat In the past it lived as far as... Western Asia Middle Asia Alaska ...but is now confined to... Far-East Russia & Korea Coniferous Forests
Dense Reed Thickets
River and Lake Basins
Rocky/low mountain areas
Low Snow Covered Areas Niche Top Predator Keep animal populations lower on the food chain in check Diet Carnivorous Deer
Moose Rabbits and Fish Brown and Black Bear Typically 10.75 ft long and 4 ft tall
Average 660lbs White versions exist as well. They have white coats instead of orange, and retain chocolate colored stripes. When scarce... Is the largest of the tigers.
Powerful hind muscles can launch a typical tiger up to 30 feet.
Siberian Tigers have a lighter colored and thicker coat for the snowy environment.
Stripes of a tiger break up its outline to be camoflauged better.
Jaws are short, making them more powerful.
Claws are retractable to prevent ware and tear.
Soft pads on feet allow quiet stalking of prey.
Body is built for short, powerful attacks in short distances.
Live up to 15 years in the wild System is similar to most mammals
Bone skeleton supports and protects other tissues
Muscles allow the animal to move by contracting the muscles to move entire system
Muscles are also included internally for various organ functions such as mmoving food through digestive system Nerve cells line the body to allow transport of information to, and from, the brain which proccesses it and makes the appropriate reactions for the body to commence.
Receptors allow body to recieve information either directly or indirectly from the outside, thus being proccessed in the brain and then translated into body function or thought. Nervous System Uses lungs to inhale air from the outside which contains oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide as a waste.
Heart moves blood around the body to bring nutrients through out the body and funnels waste out.
When blood passes through heart, its expels carbon dioxide back into the lungs and then blood is renewed with oxygen. Mouth is aligned with specialized teeth to kill and rip flesh apart and allow food to be sized and broken down enough to be moved into the stomach.
Food is moved down the esophugus and into the stomach to be broken down into a liquid substance called "chyme".
The chyme is moved into the small intestine where it is then digested and nutrients are moved through the intestine walls and into the blood stream by futher being broken down by bile and various enzymes.
Because it has a fatty diet, carnivores need excessive amounts of bile to break down fats and it is constantly renewed in the body.
The now nutrient expelled food is then moved into the large intestine where it gets excess water extracted and compacts waste to be expelled at a later time though the anus.
Any cellulose that is consumed passes straight through it, or is vomited. Bibliography http://www.enchantedlearning.com/subjects/mammals/tiger/Siberiatigerprintout.shtml

Maturity is reached between the age of 3 to 5 years
Males usually leave after pregnating.

The cubs are born blind and therefore protected by the mothers in their early days for about 8 weeks; after which they roam around accompanying her.
At the age of 1 year, they assist their elder ones in hunting.
They are full grown at the age of 3 years, which is when they start hunting on their own.
