Sumatran tigers are native to the Indonesian island of Sumatra. They are the smallest surviving tiger subspecies, listed as critically endangered on the IUCN Red List, with less than 400 of them left in the wild. Sumatran tigers can live between 10-15 years in the wild and up to 20 years in human care. These tigers are distinguished by long fur on the sides of their faces, dark orange coats and heavy black stripes due to the dark jungle habitat they are native to.
