From www.500px.com, comes this superawesome picture! Certainly one of the best I have seen of a tiger. This is a large male Amur Tiger. The Amur tigers are the largest of the sub-species and are recognised as the largest big cat in the world - and when you see a large male you can certainly see why! There are believed to be just 450 of these magnificent tigers remaining in the wilds of Russia.
TIGERS are just as imposing and majestic as lions, but don't always like to be the leader. That doesn't mean a tiger doesn't want to be the boss! Tigers are the spirit of independence and self-actualization. When they team with others, it is usually because a special niche has been reserved for them. Tigers strive for personal glory rather than a dynasty. Tiger warriors are especially fierce, since they seek a name only for themselves. They chose to build their own legend.
