That looks exactly like a regular tiger.


so, how to differentiate them? like Thai Elephant or Chinese Bear . can U really recognize them between others? U are a super if u can


But whats so special about them? If they die out aren't there like, a hundred tigers that look exactly like them?


the ecosystem/food chain gets fucked up if one animal is not doing their job or is extinct


so r u saying that tigers r causing global warming? cuz they r definitely not doing their job (their job is to survive as a species)

Harimau Sumatera sounds like the title for Haruhi Suzumiya's Indonesian dub.

I don't understand how...fucked you little heartless kiddies are. It's quite sad that shit like that happens and little fuckers, like you, have a big mouth and mock this very tragic incident.

Some things are not funny.

I kinda agree to some extend what ShroomInferno say, though i do partially understand the reason behind it. The current generation seem detached from such loss of animal species as they do not possible feel the effect such an animal have on them, remember the past egging of a teen to commit suicide in a US forum, its also akin to soldiers fighting in the war in Iraq or Afghanistan, who are mocked when they returned home.

1. Animals form a part of our culture, we derive our history with encounters with animals and our descendants and our survival to some extend is dependent on the use or consumption of animal or animal parts.

2. Animals also form part of the ecosystem where each animal, herbivore, carnivore and omnivore are dependent of one another, a system of checks to insure each species do not overpopulate, carnivores hunt weak or sick animals, too much herbivores may wreck damage to the plant ecosystem

3. There are lessons to be learnt from animals, we have proverbs that describe human characteristics that matches the animal, eg 'the eye of the tiger', swift as a cheetah, eagle-eye. etc. Should the animals become extinct, our children will wonder from pictures about animals long past (eg as dumb as a dodo bird, ever wonder how dumb a dodo bird is, you will never know?)

Although if is is true that the Harimau Sumatera, may be the last of its kind, scientist may try to preserve the animal, by
1.. Extacting its DNA for future cloning, worst case deep freeze the tiger?

2. Mate the tiger to species close to its kind.

^ i'm glad to see that at least someone is civilised enough to realise the seriousness of this happening.

even if this tragedy doesn't concern me directly, it's still making me think that with this, again, another specie is extinct.
it reminds me of china's recent big loss; the beiji - the white dolphin from the yangtze

"This extinction represents the disappearance of a complete branch of the evolutionary tree of life and emphasises that we have yet to take full responsibility in our role as guardians of the planet."

^ I can see why most people wouldn't care about saving species that are close to extinction. It's just hard to convince people to care about biodiversity considering that there are so many other practical things in their individual lives that they have to give more priority.

But at the same time, I understand the need for us to show concern about endangered species. So far, I can see three main reasons. One was already mentioned by ShroomInferno--"We have yet to take full responsibility in our role as guardians of the planet." This is more of an ethical reason, I think (or something based on religion).

Also, there is that need for us to maintain a balance in the ecosystem. No one knows how the extinction of certain species could affect the other members of the ecosystem, and there may be some "services" that only a certain species could offer.

And lastly, by saving species, we could maintain biodiversity. Biodiversity has its benefits. If we keep the variation of species close to its original number, then we would have more types of services that can be exploited. Each organism has its unique genetic material that cannot be retrieved or replaced when lost. They may have some hidden medicinal potential so no matter how unimportant a type of species may seem, it could one day be of direct importance to us all.

lol so long the genetic's from that blablabla tiger is dominant it will get a load of those tigers XD

well they only thing they can do is breed it with other tigers, sure they will be half breeds but it is better than nothing I suppose or they could do some cloning <.<
