IUCN STATUS: Endangered
Panthera tigris tigris
As their name suggests Indian tigers (also known as Bengal tigers) are native to India and found in the swampy wetlands and forest habitats. No two tigers have the same pattern of stripes – they are as unique as our finger prints! Since keeping tigers in the late 1960s, we have celebrated over 300 successful tiger births between Howletts and Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks!
All tiger sub-species are endangered, some critically. There are probably fewer than 4000 wild tigers left on the planet, with the Indian tiger being the most numerous with an estimated population of 2,500 individuals.
