The Structural and Behavioural adaptation

The two structural of Siberian tiger are their long legs, which allows them to jump farther then their prey and even catch up to its prey. In addition, they have a flexible backbone that allows them to hunt their prey quickly and react to what might the prey would do such as fight back or try to trick them.

The behavioural adaptation for the Siberian tiger are that they are very territorial causing them to mark territories.  They mark their territory by using their urine, feces, and scratch marks on trees to show the boundary. In addition, the size of a Siberian tiger’s territory can depend on their amount of food resources. It is possible for a one male Siberian tiger to have a territory big as Calgary.
