Appearance

Siberian Tiger has very long, thick hair tied by two yellow ribbons into twintails. It starts out a pale orange, but fades into white starting at the middle section. It has patterns resembling those of a real Siberian tiger, most notably the patterns most seen on their faces. She has pale yellow irides, and wears an uniform consisting of a white dress undershirt tied with a golden-brown tie - over it, a brown sweater vest with a pocket. The pocket has an embroidery consisting of a golden variation of the Kemono Friends stylized "の" with a wreath underneath, somewhat reminiscent of a school logo. The uniform is completed by a golden-brown checkered skirt and white shoes with brown soles and ribbons. Like many other Friends, she wears patterned gloves, as well as garter stockings. They are colored and patterned after the Siberian tiger, pale orange that fades into white with dark brown streaks.

Like all other friends, she has the anatomical traits of the animal she originated from. In this case, the ears and tail of a Siberian tiger.

In the original, Siberian Tiger has short and thick hair, and similarly to the animal's pelage, rusty-yellow in color, with narrow black transverse stripes. As most tigers, she has a tail, ears and yellow eyes. She has a visible fang on the right of her mouth. Her outfit is composed of a white shirt covered by red & orange plaid single-breasted jacket, white gloves, a brown bowtie a yellow short, a garter belt and high boots. Incidentally, she wears a brown bow tie, a fur ruff around her neck and a small plaid hat decorated with a rose. This share some similarities with traditional and generic circus outfits, moreover she's holding a ring put on fire, an accessory for a very famous trick among the animal trainers in circuses.

In Real Life

Siberian Tiger (Panthera tigris altaica)

The Siberian tiger (Panthera tigris tigris), or Amur tiger is the largest subspecies and the largest cat in the world. The Siberian Tiger favours forested areas and secluded mountain ranges. In its natural habitat in the Russian Far East, the Siberian Tiger enjoys a variety of different forests, from Korean pine broadleaf forests to East Asian coniferous areas and a vast variety in-between. [1]

The Siberian tiger developed some physical adaptations to endure the cold climate of its habitat, like a thick layer of fat and a very dense fur, paler and with fewer dark stripes compared to other tigers. , Siberian had the thickest fur amongst tigers, given their occurrence in the more temperate parts of Eurasia. [3]

The Siberian tiger feeds on several animal species. An individual typically consumes Musk deer, Manchuria wapitis, Gorals, Moose, wild boars, Siberian roe deer, Sika deer, hares, rabbits, pikas and even salmon, and other species of ungulate animals. According to a study carried out in the 1990s, its distribution seems to be related to the distribution of its favorite prey. [3]

Tigers live alone and aggressively scent-mark large territories to keep their rivals away. They are powerful hunters that travel many miles to find prey, such as elk and wild boar, on nocturnal hunts. Tigers use their distinctive coats as camouflage and hunt by stealth. They lie in wait and creep close enough to make a quick jump and delivering a knocking blow or a lethal neck bite. [2]

This animal is well-known for its power and strength, which added to a fearsome reputation, stir fear among humans. It is a solitary and very territorial tiger, which usually marks trees and rocks to establish its area. Although there are only a few hundred Siberian tigers in their distribution range, they have the advantage of having vast areas available for searching food, an activity to which they dedicate part of the night. [3]

Over the last hundred years, hunting and forest destruction have reduced overall tiger populations dramatically. Tigers are hunted as trophies and also for body parts that are used in traditional Chinese medicine. Poaching is a reduced—but still very significant—threat to Siberian tigers. In 2010, the governments of Russia and China signed an agreement to improve the conservation of protected areas in the transboundary region. One of its worst times was in the early twentieth century since in the 1930’s the population fell to about 20-30 individuals. But thanks to the patrols' effort to protect the subspecie, the population stable now at around 540 individuals. [2] [3]

Trivia

  • The Siberian tiger is the national animal of South Korea.
  • The Tungusic peoples considered the Siberian tiger a near-deity and often referred to it as "Grandfather" or "Old man". Since the tiger has a mark on its foreheads that looks like a Chinese character for 'King' (Chinese: 王; pinyin: Wáng), or a similar character meaning "Great Emperor", it is revered for this by people, including the Udekheits and Chinese.
