Tigers of the World: The tiger is undoubtedly the world's favourite animal, but many of us are probably not aware of the fact that the species is distributed into 9 sub-species across South and South-East Asia and the Russian Far-East (I myself could never recall the 9 names each time someone asked me what the races were, and so I decided to draw this poster!). These are the Siberian, Caspian, South China, Bengal, Indochinese, Malayan, Sumatran, Javan and Balinese Tigers...

Javan Tigers. Last sighting, 1972; last tracking (3 animals) 1979. Javan natives consider tigers to have been the reincarnation of their dead relatives; yet they carried out this extermination.
