The Indochinese Tiger was completed on 4.16.2012. This illustration leaves only one subspecies of Panthera tigris left to complete - the South China Tiger - of the extant tigers in the world. There aren't too many animals I draw where it's reasonable to think that I could conceivably draw all subspecies. The large land mammals, though, usually only have a few. I'll be sad when I complete the last tiger subspecies. But who knows - I might add the extinct subs as well to the image library some day.
The Indochinese Tiger is a subspecies of tiger native to the the secluded, hilly tropical jungles of Cambodia, China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam. Panthera tigris corbetti is named in honor of Jim Corbett - who was a British hunter, conservationist and author. It is a highly endangered animal with a wild population estimated to be around only 1200-1800 individuals. The average male Indochinese tiger measures about nine feet long (2.55 to 2.85 meters) weighing about 330-430 pounds (150 to 195 kilograms), although larger animals can tip the scales at over 500 pounds (250 kg). The tiger's skull measures between 13-14 inches (319 to 365 millimeters) in length. Like all tiger species they are threatened by poaching and habitat loss, although the governments of some of the Southeast Asian nations have set aside some natural areas to help protect these endangered animals.
