Amur tigers have many adaptations to help them survive in their environment. They live in forest tundras, which means that they must be adapted for very cold temperatures and deep snow. These tigers have long, thick fur and fat on their flanks and belly to keep them warm. Their large size also helps generate lots of heat. They also have a ruff of fur around their neck that acts like a scarf. To protect themselves from the snow, these tigers have extra fur on their paws that serve as good snowshoes.
