Siberian Tiger Prey Profile

This is a spreadsheet that sets out the profile of prey items of the Siberian tiger in the far east of Russia where it is essentially found currently. The region is Sikhote-Alin, Zapoveknik. The data was published in 1996. Please note that prey items as scientist call animals preyed upon are also hunted by people and accordingly the prey profile of wildcats will by necessity change and adapt. As at 2011 the figures might be different for that reason.

The Red Deer (Cervus elaphus) is one of the largest deer species. The tiger prefers large prey. The male weighs 160 to 240 kg (350 to 530 lb).

The source material comes from the premier work on wild cats: Wild Cats Of The World by Mel and Fiona Sunquist. ISBN-13: 978-0-226-77999-7
