Siberian tigers are large four-legged cats that are noted for their tawny red coats that feature a pattern of black stripes. Their necks, parts of their faces and their underparts are cream colored or white. Their ears are large and round and have white spots on the back.

Siberian tigers have powerful necks and broad and powerful shoulders. Their front legs and paws are also strong, and their claws can be retracted. Their fur is long and dense to help them live in Siberia's cold climate.

Male Siberian tigers can grow to be 12 feet long and weigh 932 pounds or more. The females can be nearly 8 feet long and weigh up to 390 pounds.
