[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is a rare tiger subspecies that inhabits the Indonesian island of Sumatra. It was classified as critically endangered by IUCN in 2008 as the population is projected to be 441 to 679 individuals, with a declining trend. Males have a bearded and maned appearance. The frequency of stripes is higher than in other tiger subspecies.The Sumatran tiger is one of the smallest subspecies.

This is a female. Blijdorp zoo. Although she might look like posing on this pic, she was walking and there was no time to adjust the framing nicely (Therefore the strange square format).

Thank you for looking,
