BBC Reporter Goes Into a Lion’s Den – Video

25/04/10 0 COMMENTS

Often people see people like us touching lions and they assume they are just big, cuddly cats. They are not. They are predators, but they can build a relationship with humans. In fact, the founder of Big Cat Habitat, Kay Rosaire, was saved by a lion during a tiger attack.

That being said, you can’t just come out and touch them and assume all will go well. What happens at the end of this video is a perfect example of why all humans need to have a healthy respect for lions and keep in mind that they are predators.

What is a Siberian Tiger?

25/04/10 0 COMMENTS

Siberian tigers are considered the world’s largest cats. They are also known as the Amur, Manchurian, Altaic, Korean, North China or Ussuri tigers (Wikipedia). Siberians are considered the biggest of the eight recent tiger subspecies. They can grow up to 13 feet in length and weigh up to 900 lbs.

Wild Siberians live in Southeast corner of Russia in the Sikhote-Alin mountain range east of the Amur River and there are some living in China and North Korea.

There are 400 to 500 Siberian tigers left living in the wild. Poaching for fur and for their body parts that are used in Traditional Chinese Medicine have caused a major loss in population. Is is against the law in China to use Siberian parts for medicine, but despite the laws reports say that in 1991 alone, one-third of the Siberian tiger population was killed to meet the demand for their bones and other parts used in the practice of Chinese Medicine.

Below are some videos about the Siberian tigers. Please keep in mind the money spent to monitor these creatures. It is crucial that we save this species. Learn more at Wikipedia.

Warning on Part 5. There is a dead tiger and this is not a video for children.
