The remaining six tiger subspecies have been classified as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).Major reasons for population decline include habitat destruction, habitat fragmentation and poaching.This, coupled with the fact that they are indigenous to some of the more densely populated places on Earth, has caused significant conflicts with humans.
This population occurs in Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, but has not been recorded in Vietnam since 1997.
In 2010, the population in Indochina was estimated at about 350 individuals.
In 2017, the Cat Classification Task Force of the IUCN Cat Specialist Group revised felid taxonomy and now recognizes the tiger populations in continental Asia as P. The Indochinese tiger was described as being smaller than the Bengal tiger and as having a smaller skull.
Males average 108 inches (270 cm) in total length and weigh between 150 and 195 kg (331 and 430 lb), while females average 96 inches (240 cm) and 100–130 kg (220–290 lb).
The tiger is the national animal of Bangladesh, India, Malaysia and South Korea.
The word Panthera is probably of Oriental origin and retraceable to the Ancient Greek word panther, the Latin word panthera, the Old French word pantère, most likely meaning "the yellowish animal", or from pandarah meaning whitish-yellow.
The population is the last surviving of the three Indonesian island tiger populations.
It is listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List.
Males range in total length from 230–260 cm (91–102 in) and weigh between 130 to 180 kg (290 to 400 lb), while females range from 220–240 cm (87–94 in) and 100 to 110 kg (220 to 240 lb).
In Bali, tigers were hunted to extinction; the last Bali tiger, an adult female, is thought to have been killed at Sumbar Kima, West Bali, on 27 September 1937, though there were unconfirmed reports that villagers found a tiger corpse in 1963. Males range in total length from 220 to 255 cm (87 to 100 in) and weigh between 100 to 140 kg (220 to 310 lb), while females range between 215 to 230 cm (85 to 91 in) and 75 to 110 kg (165 to 243 lb).
Therefore, it was proposed to recognize only two tiger subspecies as valid, namely P. The authors proposed to classify Sumatran and Javan tiger as distinct species, P. The authors proposed recognition of only two subspecies, namely P. tigris comprising the Bengal, Malayan, Indochinese, South Chinese, Siberian and Caspian tiger populations, and P. sondaica comprising the Javan, Bali and Sumatran tiger populations.
