There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

His tail says that he does have Amur blood (can't be Caspian, right?)..With bengal parentage.
In the wild, expect the unexpected, as we humans haven't really much clue of what to expect.

Siberian-Bengal mix? I'd say more on the Siberian side, though, going from characteristics.

Its amur - sumatran mix (yes, he doesnt look sumatran at all). His name was Timur. His coat points to amur ancestors, his smallish size (I estimate him to be 180 kg max) points to sumatran tigers. He had to be excluded from breeding program and he has been replaced by Igor (see above), who is pure amur.

Photos are misleading - Timur looks more robust than Igor (and in fact he was) and you would say that Timur is probably heavier. But photos dont show the striking difference in height and lenght - Igor is completely different league.
