Historicly, Caspian Tigers were used by the Romans to fight gladiators, as well as other animals, in the arenas. They lived in China, Tajikistan, Iran, Afghanistan and Turkey. One of the most important factors in the Caspian tiger's decline and extinction was that it was already vulnerable due to the restricted nature of its distribution in riverine habitats which were also intensively used by humans. Hunting, loss of habitat and large wild prey are the primary causes of the extinction.
