tiger lake live cam

Tigers are the largest members of the cat family and are recognized by their black stripes on orange-reddish fur with a white underside. Tigers are a rarity in the wild and only five subspecies of tigers remain: the Bengal tiger, Indochinese tiger, Malayan tiger, Siberian tiger, and the South China tiger. Our Tiger Cam at Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Florida shows live video of tigers that are cross-bred.

Siberian (sometimes known as Amur) tigers are the largest of all the subspecies. They can weigh up to 650 pounds and reach nearly 11 feet in length.

Tigers are one of the most widely recognized animals on earth and have been revered by humans for centuries. Tigers have been the central figure of countless stories, myths, and books throughout history. Because tigers are admired for their strength, agility, and beauty, they are featured as sports mascots, and on flags and other symbols across the world.

Tigers and Humans

Despite the fact humans generally admire tigers, the population of these great cats has declined dramatically since the beginning of the 20th century, and three sub-species of tigers are now extinct: the Bali Tiger, Caspian Tiger, and the Javan Tiger.

Tigers are solitary cats and require a large territorial range for hunting. Nearly 95% of their habitat has been lost to deforestation and human development in Asia. In the 19th century, tigers could once be found all across the Asian continent, from the Middle East to eastern seaboard of Russia.

Poaching has also crippled wild tiger populations. In China, tiger parts are traded on the black market because it is thought that they have medicinal value, despite lack of scientific evidence to support this. Throughout the Indian subcontinent, tigers that are thought to attack and kill humans are hunted or poisoned.

Tigers love to swim! Watch our live tiger cam and see them come down to Tiger Lake to cool off or have a drink of water. The Tiger Lake Cam overlooks two tiger enclosures, one is about an acre and the other is about two acres. The camera is positioned on the Catwalk at the double layers water separating the two enclosures. To the left is the current home of TJ Tiger; to the right you'll see the larger area, currently home to Hoover Tiger. Hoover's enclosure wraps around behind the shade cloth visual barrier at the back of his enclosure, so if you don't see Hoover on the tiger cam, he could be back in the woods, off camera.

The cats move around a bit, so you may meet other tigers in this area, we will post them by name if and when they do exchange places.

Big Cat Rescue, one of the world’s largest accredited sanctuaries for exotic cats, advocates for ending the abuse of captive big cats and saving wild cats from extinction. This refuge is home to over 80 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars, and other species who have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, or retired from performing acts. Our new series of live cams brings us into their world as they live, play, and heal through rehabilitation.
