Tiger, Panthera tigris
Once there were considered to be 6 remaining tiger subspecies, however, genetic analysis suggests that there are only two distinct subspecies, the island-dwelling Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sondaica) and the mainland tiger (Panthera tigris tigris) made up of subpopulations in Mainland Asia, including India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Sikkim, China, Russia, Indochina and the Malay Peninsula (includes virgata, altaica, amoyensis, corbetti and “jacksoni”).
Amur leopard, panthera pardus orientalis
There are fewer than 100 Amur leopards left in the wild, which makes this the most endangered big cat in the world.
