If you get one give me half.

The extinction of these wonderful tigers was probably inevitable anyways. I mean there are just animal species out there that literally destroy themselves, like Komodo Dragons. They eat their own eggs to stop their own bloodline, which is not normal for them to do so because their existance means that they once did not destroy their own line originally. I wish I had Steven Colbert's book right now because he talks about how there are just some animals out there about to be extinct and it's because they hate themselves. Although it may be satirical it might be true in some ways.

I wonder what "rare" tiger steak tastes like. And when I say rare I don't mean raw meat.
the thing about the komodo dragons isn't about them "hating themselves" it's about population control. they are THE top predator on an island chain, they have long lives because they're reptiles, they lay LARGE quantities of eggs. if all the eggs hatched and all the babies survived to adulthood they'd devastate the number of prey animals on the islands and starve to death.

for komodo dragons cannibalism is a means of survival by limiting their population growth. if food is scarce they''ll be more likely to eat their own eggs, if food is more plentiful they'll be less likely to do that. when the young hatch only the fittest and most lucky get to the safety of the trees before an adult has a chance to eat them. see how it works?

You are quite right about the population growth. Rats do it as well. It's a species' way of controlling overpopulation.

However this type of tiger is in the critical endangerment level, which means it is likely to be in conservation at the very moment and also likely facing extinction. Now if you could provide me with such an article that says that there is only one specimen of the tiger left, then I would take it that there is only one more left in Indonesia. One thing I have to say about this is that hopefully Indonesia's concern and efforts to conserve this species and actually if it's successful, hopefully no more poaching or merchandising off this animal will occur even then (but you never know). These tigers actually are part of our world to deal with other pests at times. So they can be useful in other ways other than their fur (b/c they are pretty and warm or so ?).
