Siberian/Ussurian tiger Rani


Rani came to us from circus as a cub

Rani was 9-months old when she got into our care from a circus. They brought her with a collar around her neck and she was tamed as a dog. Sadly, dressage in a circus starts from early age and it was no different in her case as well. She quite quickly came out of her shell here and now she enjoys her freedom and peace without the circus dressage.

At the beginning of 20th century, there were about 100 thousand tigers worldwide. Now there are only about 3-4,5 thousand tigers in the wild.

Siberian tigers are the biggest ones from all the tiger subspecies. The males weight about 180-306 kg and therefore they are bigger than the females (100-167kg). 29th July is the International day of tigers, since 2010 when it was established at the Global tiger recovery summit in Saint-Petersburg (Tiger summit for short).

Tigers love water and so each of them has to have a pool in their enclosure. One of their most distinct characteristic are their stripes. Each tiger has their own unique pattern, just like humans have their fingerprints. Their skin has the same stripe pattern as their fur.

For the ADOPTION DONATION for Rani we would like to thank:
