The Sumatran tiger lives in the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Less than 400 Sumatran tigers live today. In 1987, experts estimated the population of Sumatran tigers at 1,000. They weight around 165-308 pounds. They live at tropical broadleaf evergreen forests, freshwater swamp forests and peat swamps. They are the smallest surviving tiger subspecies and there are only 400 left……..So let’s save the animals!!!

PEANUT is a website to help animals. (Especially, endangered animals) This website will have information about these animals. It will also have website links for charities for you to donate to and animal shelters for you to adopt homeless animals. This website is also run by kids (age 12). There will also be drawings of our very own “Mr Peanut” defending animals from the villain “Cashew Man” who wants to take the DNA of the endangered Animals for his Frozen Zoo, not knowing that it will kill them.(Drawings by Adrian Daniel Suhenda)
