TIGERS PHYSICAL FEATURES The tigers fur is a pattern of dark vertical stripes. The tigers life span is years. The tiger can weigh 720 pounds (363 kg. ) The tigers claws can be stretched out to use as weapons. Most of the time the claws are kept pulled in so they don’t get damaged.

Tigers Endangered Status Tigers are mostly endangered because poachers – people who hunt illegally. There used to be 100,000 tigers in Asia, now there are only 4,000 left in the whole world. People pay $65,000 for 1 tiger skin!!!!! Tigers mostly get shot. The Bail, Javan, and Caspian tigers are extinct. Tigers are running out of space because people are building houses on there land. This is a way we can help tigers to not be endangered any more: run the people that are selling tiger skins out of business.
