Bad news from animals world, there is only 6 tiger species left in the wild


IllustrationIllustration - Towards the weekend, sad news comes from the animal world. The research group stated that there are only six species of tigers left in the world. Their number in the wild is less than 4,000. The six remaining tiger species are Bengal, Amur, South China, Sumatra, Indochina and Malaysian tigers, as reported by the group of researchers in the scientific journal Current Biology.

Meanwhile, three species of tigers that have been officially extinct are Caspian, Java and Bali tigers. The last two names abode in Indonesia before they disappeared without trace. Despite natural damage due to global warming, illegal poaching is still the main enemy of tiger survival in the world.

Illegal poaching related to hobbies or deforestation makes tigers no longer king in their forests. Tiger conservation is a major step in increasing their number in the world. Not only in Europe or America, Asia and Arabia are also obliged to do it.

Different from other large cats such as jaguar, tigers have different breeds. Simply put, tigers only mate with their species, in contrast to beetle tigers that can interbreed with another large cat.

"Tigers have many differences, ranging from body size to their fur color. Tigers from Russia are very different from India. Even tigers from Malaysia are different from Indonesia" said Shu-Jin Luo, a researcher from Peking University, Beijing, China.
