Tigers of Cambodia The people of Cambodia have a significant cultural link with the Asian Tiger.
Also known as the Indochinese Tiger, they are seen all over Cambodia; on sports teams, product labels, businesses, clothing, and signs. Tigers represent power, strength, and courage. They are seen as one of the strongest, most fierce, and deadly apex predators on the planet. Compared to its closest relative, the Bengal Tiger, it is slightly smaller but make no mistake, the Indochinese Tiger is still humongous! Insert photo About the Indochinese Tiger (Panthera tigris corvette) According to Wikipedia, the Males range in size from 255 to 285 cm (100 to 112 in) and weigh between 150 to 195 kg (331 to 430 lb). Females range in size from 230 to 255 cm (91 to 100 in) and weigh between 100 to 130 kg (220 to 290 lb).” Their color is a darker shade of orange than other tigers with more, shorter narrow black stripes (on their skin as well as their fur).
Tigers are solitary hunters and mark their territory by spraying along the borders of their domains. Tigers use their sense of smell not for hunting, but for communicating with other tigers. They inhale scents through their mouths and using the Jacobson organ (a small pouch-like organ located behind their front incisors) can smell and identify other tigers. Tigers like water and swim very well with huge feet that act as paddles. They are very fast but do not climb much because of their weight. Their front-facing eyes give them binocular vision, meaning they can judge depth and distance. Like other cats, tigers can see in the dark. People living near jungles where tigers live often paint eyes on the backs of their hats because tigers prefer to attack from behind.
