Siberian tigers live in eastern Russia, northeastern China and northeasternhttp://www.forevertigers.com/biology.htm Manchuria.  They also live along the coastline of Siberia where they can withstand temperatures of up to -40F, but usually stay around -4F.  Siberian tigers prefer cool temperatures.  Even during the cold climate in the winter, the tiger is very active.  In the warm months the weather is cool in the northern range and temperate in the lower range of Manchuria.  They live in both coniferous and deciduous forests, but prefer areas with tall grass for hunting. These tigers are native to the Amur-Ussuri region of Russia.

Siberian tigers have an average of 10-30sq. miles of territory each.  They mark their boundaries with urine and scratching.  They stay within their territories unless food is scarce.  At that point, they might travel hundreds of miles in search of food.  Only the male tiger will defend his territory against other males, especially when females or food is present.  Females' territory will usually overlap males' territory in some areas.
