Sumatran tigers are the smallest of the tigers, which are the world’s largest cats. Unfortunately, all subspecies of tiger are endangered (and two already are extinct) because of the combined threats of habitat loss, fear-based persecution by humans, and wildlife trade for their skins, bones and other body parts.

Tigers are very well camouflaged, so look carefully as you observe their habitat. The tigers at Zoo Atlanta may generally be seen year-round, but they have access to their heated indoor areas on cold or rainy days.
