Ngandong tiger size comparison (vs Amur tiger and Bengal tiger). The Ngandong tiger (Panthera tigris soloensis) is an extinct subspecies of tiger which lived in what is now the Sundaland region of Indonesia during the Pleistocene epoch. Fossils of P. t. soloensis have been found primarily in the village of Ngandong, hence the common name. Only seven fossils are known, making study of the animal difficult. Heltler and Volmer (2007) estimated that a large male could potentially weigh up to 470 kilograms, heavier than the Bengal tiger, one of the largest and most powerful felines of all time. Although Raúl Valvert (2014) later estimated the straight length to be between 172 to 233 centimeters, while the length over the curves was estimated to be 258-350 cm. The minimum weight for females was estimated at 143 kg, although males can weigh up to 368 kg, with exceptional specimen weighing up to 400 kg. Photo: /valentint.blog.bg
