The Siberian Tiger (Panthera tigris altaica) is a rare subspecies of tiger (P. tigris). Also known as the Amur, North China, Manchurian, Ussuri, or Korean Tiger, it is arguably the largest of the 5 extant tiger subspecies.
Apart from its size, the Siberian Tiger is differentiated from other tiger subspecies by its paler fur and dark brown (rather than black) stripes. As well as for colour, their fur also differs by being thicker and longer in order to cope with the freezing temperatures of their habitat. Siberian Tigers vary, too, by having larger feet than most other sub-species to help facilitate movement through snow. (info from Wikipedia)
