The Balinese Tiger pronounced extinct

Bail Tiger

The Balinese Tiger became extinct in 1937 and until that time their habitat was on the Island of Bali. They were exceedingly small tigers and their extinction was due to heavy hunting. Sadly, there was not any kind of protection back then so hunting them for sport was ongoing. None of the Balinese Tigers are known to have ever been kept in captivity.
