Meet Our Amur Tigers

Amur Tigers are the biggest cats in the world. But size isn’t their only advantage. With night vision, laser-sharp senses, camouflaging and rapid-fire agility, they’re perfectly suited for stealthy hunting. Come catch a glimpse of our tigers: Katja and Sarma

Where We Live

Amur tigers were once known as Siberian tigers, since they were found throughout much of Siberia. Today their territory has shrunk to a small area in northeastern Russia, called the Amur Valley. Their habitats are in the vast woodlands of northern birch forests.
