The Siberian tiger or Panthera tigris is a population of the Panthera tigris tigris subspecies that is native to the Russian Far East, Northeast China, and possibly North Korea. They are also known as Amur Tiger, Manchuriant Tiger, Korean Tiger or Ussuriant Tiger.

Today, this population inhabits mainly the Sikhote-Alin mountain region in southwest Primorye Province in the Russian Far East. Panthera tigris of the cold forests of Manchuria, Siberia, Eurasia, Malay Peninsula, East Indies.

The skull of the Siberian tiger or Panthera tigris is characterized by its large size. The facial region is very powerful and very broad in the region of the canines.

The skull prominences, especially sagittal crest and crista occipitalis are very high and strong in old males, and often much more massive than usually observed in the biggest skulls of Bengal tigers.

The size variation in skulls of Siberian tigers or Panthera tigris ranges from 13.0 to 15.1 in. in nine individuals measured.

A female skull is always smaller and never as heavily built and robust as that of a male. The height of the sagittal crest in its middle part reaches as much as 1.1 in., and in its posterior part up to 1.8 in. Female skulls range from 11.01 to 12.21 in.

The color of Siberian tiger or Panthera tigris pelage is often very pale, especially in winter coat. However, variations within populations may be considerable.

Individual variation is also found in form, length, and partly in color, of the dark stripes, which have been described as being dark brown rather than black.

The fur of the Siberian tiger or Panthera tigris is moderately thick, coarse and sparse. The Siberian tiger’s summer and winter coats contrast sharply with other subspecies. Generally, the coat of western populations was brighter and more uniform than that of the Far Eastern populations.

The summer coat is coarse, while the winter coat is denser, longer, softer, and silkier. The winter fur often appears quite shaggy on the trunk and is markedly longer on the head, almost covering the ears. Siberian and Caspian tigers had the thickest fur amongst tigers.
