Category: Animal Facts, Animals, Creature Feature

Brady Barr stalks the Malayan Tiger in this week’s Creature Feature.

The Malayan Tiger is the smallest of the tiger species with an average length of 6.5 feet (probably just a bit bigger than your dad). They live exclusively on the Malay Peninsula of Southeast Asia and are the the national animal of Malaysia. They call the tiger ‘Pak Belang,’ which means ‘Uncle Stripes.’

This tiger’s scientific name is ‘panthera tigris jacksoni’ named after the conservationist, Peter Jackson. What animal would you want to be known for saving?
