There are only a few hundred Sumatran tigers left in the wild and experts say they could become extinct within the next 20 years.

Sumatran tigers

Sumatran tigers, like Spot and Stripe, are the smallest subspecies of all tigers.

They are the most critically endangered tigers on Earth.

In the wild, they live only on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, in south-east Asia.
