RE: Tiger Predation - Spalea - 12-07-2018

@Sanju :

About #1440: Yes I noticed the paradox. The semi wild Asian buffalos reacted against the tiger attack, not the African buffalos against the lion... This time ! Because there is no lack of examples showing the opposite reaction.

And yes, I see the tiger able to kill very quickly his prey whereas the lion took up all his time. Nevertheless I believe this lion experienced too. So, clearly this tiger uses a technique killing almost immediately his prey. Certainly, as you say, by shaking violently the buffalo's neck, breaking his cervical vertebras. Why doesn't the lion do that ? Perhaps because the semi wild Asian buffalos' neck isn't as muscular as the 100% wild African buffalos' neck and this by far. The Asian buffalos' necks, in the video you showed, are gaunt. A little bit the same as an European cow's one. By this way, it was very easy for the tiger, with his big paws, to kill one buffalo quickly, and, almost just after, a second victim could be killed too without the swift herd reaction.

The last thing I want is seem to be biased. But the difference between the two different buffalo species' neck is great. The lion couldn't do otherwise.

Speaking of sambar & Ranthambore tigress, some of them seem to use a unique move that have been noted several times in the recent past... only there.

Couldn't identify.




Noor.




Arrowhead.




That^ doesn't look like some instinctive technique but a complex one that have been developed by trial & error.
But because multiple unrelated tigresses are doing it, very similarly, it may have been developed by one of theirs common female ancestors & being passed down the family line from mothers to daughters.

@GuateGojira @Rage2277 @Roflcopters @Pckts @SuSpiciouS or anyone can identify the first tigress?... & is anyone aware of the identity of the "common grandmother" shared by the three?

I think all these tigers were related to the original Machali tigress (the one with the fish mark). she is also the mother of T16 aka Machli.

Yes you're right. 
As per www.ranthambhoreguides.com, Arrowhead is the daughter of T-19 (Krishna) & the mother of Noor was T-13 old Sultanpur female, who was a daughter of T-14 of that same litter of three sisters –T-14, T-15 and T-16.

Any luck with the first one?

The tigress in the first video is also Arrowhead, taken at zone 3 near Ragbagh lake in Ranthambore.

@Rishi 
Heres some lineage info on Arrowhead.
https://www.ranthambhoreguides.com/tigers/arrow-head

It's said in that article that's she's probably a daughter of Krishna and the Star male so that would make her a granddaughter of Machli I believe.

I'll do some more digging when I get a chance, I'm out of town for the new year.
