Tiger  (Panthera tigris) Description:  The AZA Tiger SSP encompasses three subspecies of tiger: Siberian,  Sumatran, and Indochinese. Two additional subspecies, the South China tiger and Bengal  tiger, are not included in the SSP. Tiger subspecies are primarily distinguished by where  they live, though there are physical differences among them. The Siberian is the largest  and lightest-colored tiger, in comparison to the Sumatran, the smallest and darkest tiger.  The tiger is the largest member of the cat family. It measures seven to ten feet long, nose  to tail, stand three feet tall at the shoulder and weighs from 250 to over 500 pounds,  depending on the subspecies. Range:  The Siberian tiger is found in the Amur region of the Russian Far East, North  Korea and northeast China; the Sumatran tiger is found only on the island of Sumatra in  Indonesia. The Bengal tiger is the most common and is found scattered in forests
