TIGER STRIPE ACTIVITY
- Every tiger has completely unique stripe patterns, markings and colouring. This makes it easy to identify individuals by their stripes, much like a human fingerprint.
We’ve made a little game to see if you can identify these tigers by their stripes.
Sort these photos into two piles and get visitors to try and match the pairs!
You can print these yourself by clicking on the photo below. Laminate and keep to use again and again!
Tiger Stripe Fun Facts
- Different subspecies may have certain characteristics which make them easy to identify. In this photo you can very clearly see the differences between the Amur & Sumatran tiger.
Amur tigers tend to be lighter, with thinner stripes. Sumatran tigers have much darker fur and thicker stripes.
