North Korea may actually have Siberian tigers, its just too difficult to find any information out there.

There are tigers in the mountain range in China along the border with North Korea, so it seems quite probable that there are tigers in N. Korea too, but as you say, it's difficult to prove.

in the DMZ between south and legitimate Korea there are probably tigers since no humans are allowed in there

If there are tigers in Korea, they are much more likely to be in the mountains up North, not in the DMZ.

the amount of tigers in Texas alone exceeds all tigers in the wild, they are much happier to breed in captivity than in the wild, unlike a certain Chinese bear.

We definitely should focus on conserving the critically endangered species much more so though

How do you even measure/compare the happiness levels of animals breeding in captivity to their very elusive wild counterparts. Smells like bs if I'm being honest

I think they meant "willing"
+1
Level 71
Feb 6, 2024
Captivity is an acceptable way to help tigers breed and save them from extinction, but I think it's a bit much to say they prefer to be in captivity. Most animals should ultimately be returned to where they belong. Even setting that point aside, is Texas the natural habitat of the Bengal Tiger? Tigers are ingrained in the ecosystem and culture of South and Southeast Asian countries, and frankly it's an insult to these countries that America has not returned its tigers to them.

Neither of the animals are critically endangered. Tigers are endangered and giant pandas are vulnerable

I saw a documentary on TV according to which there were tons of tigers in Bhutan. But maybe they still haven't updated the official statistics? :S

Estimating the weight of a Bengali tiger at 400 lbs, 75 of them comes to about 15 tons.

If you think Siberian Tiger populations are in bad shape, take a look at their relative in the region, the Amur Leopard. There are roughly 60 left in the wild.

They are extinct in the wild in Cambodia but used to live in the wild there. Singapore is too urbanised for wild tigers, plus it’s an island (although Indonesia is a group of islands and has wild tigers).

Level 36
Sep 13, 2023
Florida is not a country, it is a US state and there are no wild tigers in the US. Nor are there wild ones in Australia. Only at zoos.

In Australia they have tigers at Dreamworld (an amusement park on the Gold Coast) and at several zoos nationwide. Although it is more common to find a zoo with lions or cheetahs than one with tigers.

Bangladesh is surprising to me since it is very densely populated by humans.
+4
Level 73
Jul 29, 2022
What would be even more surprising to you is that it's the national animal of Bangladesh.

And regarding the density thing, it seems that you don't know that the country has forests and sparsely populated areas like the Sundarbans and Chittagong Hill Tract.

+4
Level 71
Jul 29, 2022
Yeah, like @Aficionado said, even though the country overall has a high population density, there are still a lot of natural areas. Most of the tigers in Bangladesh live in the Sundarbans, which is actually a fairly large area. There's a reason why the most famous tiger variety is called the Bengal tiger!
