Although different subspecies of tiger have different characteristics, in general male tigers weigh between 200 and 260 kilograms, (400-715 pounds.) Adult females are slightly smaller and lighter, weighing 100-160 kilograms, (220-400 pounds.) The males are between 5 feet 10 inches to 9 feet 1 inch in length, and the females are between 7 feet 6 inches and 9 feet in length.
