Tigers have roamed planet earth for over a million years, and yet today are considered endangered. Estimates claim there are only about 4000 of these mighty creatures left in the world. Originally there were nine subspecies of tiger, but three of them are now extinct. Many suspect the South-China tiger has also gone extinct since no sightings have been reported in the last ten years. This means that the remaining tiger subspecies are the Bengal, Indochinese, Sumatran, Siberian, and Malayan. Of these, the Siberian is the largest. While they no longer reside in the Korean peninsula, they once did, which is why in that region they are known as the Korean tiger.
