Bali Tiger Facts

Bali Tigers, which became extinct in the 1930s, were one of the first subspecies of tigers to disappear from the earth. An unfortunate fact is that there are now two other subspecies to add to our world's recently extinct animals facts list. There are several reasons why the Bali Tiger was so vulnerable to extinction. The tigers were from the island of Bali in Indonesia where they were landlocked on a relatively small island with humans encroaching on their habitat. What many historians believe is that when Europeans arrived in Bali, they started hunting and killing the Bali Tigers which led to their extinction. They do not believe it was due to the Balinese people, who feared the tigers. Balinese kids were often given tiger tooth necklaces to wear for protection.
