It’s hard to see male tigers from Up North in these kind of shots but when you do see them, they are on a level of their own. this is the big male from Sathiana range of Dudhwa. early/2018.

If i get some time on my laptop, i could probably upload it here. here’s more on MT03 male of Chitwan.

Another conflict-causing tiger has been taken under control from the Bagai area of Madi in the Chitwan National Park (CNP) area. The large cat was brought under control on August 30, 2018 after a week-long effort by a joint team of NTNC-BCC and CNP. On August 24, NTNC-BCC received information from CNP authorities regarding a fatal tiger attack on a local villager. Having killed one person, following a series of livestock attacks, it had been the cause of much terror in the area. This is the second human fatality in August this year where a tiger is seen coming outside the Park area and causing outrage.
After the man was reported to have gone missing a day earlier, a sweep operation in the Bagai community forest successfully recovered the dead body. Tragically the tiger had consumed the victim’s head and lower left limb. Upon learning this, immediately a technical team of three men were deployed for reconnaissance survey. Pugmarks indications confirmed the presence of an adult male tiger in the human settlement area. Subsequently a re-enforcement team, including staffs from NTNC-BCC and CNP, were deployed for rescue, with the Nepal Army undertaking security for the whole rescue team.
Dr. Ashish Gurung, from NTNC-BCC, shares about the difficulty of the rescue operation: “Besides the challenges of the terrain, the wounded tiger was surprisingly energetic, making the rescue even trickier.” ‘Veet and Bait’ process was used in the capture, both of which involve strategically pushing the tiger towards the narrow end of a funnel or setting up a bait, following which the tiger is tranquilized with a dart gun.
The particular tiger was found to be one of the dominant males of the area, identified from the camera traps as CNP_MT03 (tiger code) during the National Tiger Survey conducted earlier this year in January. The age of the tiger is estimated to be anywhere between 8-10 years. Recovering from the wounds on its forelimbs and torso, it would likely have succumbed to the injuries during a fight with another tiger. Its dew claw on the left forelimb was also missing. On August 31 the rescue team brought him to Kasara where it is currently being kept in the holding facility under close supervision of the wildlife veterinarian team.
In the past fiscal year in 2017-18, a total of seven human-tiger conflict incidents were reported from CNP. Two of these included livestock depredation cases, three incidents were related to human injuries and the remaining two were human fatalities. Within the first month of this fiscal year there have already been two fatal incidents with tigers in CNP.
“A majority of these cases are caused by tigers that are unable to hunt their natural prey due to injuries suffered from fights with another tiger,” suggests Mr. Babu Ram Lamichhane, another researcher at NTNC. “Other common cases include wild animals venturing out of the national park, very likely in search of its territory.” Although increasing human-tiger conflict is a major challenge for conservationists today, it is also a sign of a healthy tiger population, especially when old and weak tigers are pushed out by new stronger individuals.

Sub adult cubs of Ladli, from Ranthambore. Sep/2018


*This image is copyright of its original author


An old night picture of a male tiger (we use to call him "Chips') around the lake in Ranthambhore. This was an interesting story: In the winters of 2000-2001 there was a tigress who had four 8-9-month-old cubs. Her range was around Chiroli. One day one of her cubs was found dead near the forest track. The body had no visible injuries. Forest staff started looking for the mother and the other three cubs and did not find any evidence of them. The Field Director got together a team of volunteers, including Aditya Singh - our resident photographer, gave them vehicles and asked them to find the family. After spending almost a few full days and nights, Aditya Singh's team did find the family on the second day and even got some really bad pictures around midnight. The tigress had shifted her territory to another area near Bhid and that's why she could not be found. A few weeks later she once again shifted her territory to a place known as Sakri and hen stayed there till she died, which is another very interesting and sad story.

We were riding on elephants in Kaziranga reserve park looking at the fauna of the area. On enquiry we were told no tiger was sighted for the last 4-5 yrs. As luck would have it  one mahout shouted bagh bagh. All the elephants with tourists rushed towards the bushes where this tiger was hiding, probably of so many elephants. Soon he was surrounded by the elephants with excited tourists on top of them. Mind you the tigers, probably, there in Kaziranga are not used to human beings. Mahouts were goading the elephants forward but who also were hesitating. The tiger growled and elephants stood and shook, when  suddenly the tiger charged 5-6 steps. My elephant shrank back but stood his ground. The tiger again slunk back into the bushes. All were happy to see the tiger. But what about him? Was he happy?

Queen of Sunderbans

I believe that, Hard work will pay off. 
After 2 long days of waiting in a small creek of the 'Mysterious Mangrove', without pressing the shutter for a single time, all the frustration, all the failure, all the tiredness just melt down in a fraction when His Majesty finally gave his glimpse in such manner, in such location. The moment was magical. 
Probably once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the Mysterious King in such location (Dhani - Grassland of Mangrove). The undisputed ruler of one of the most challenging terrain in the world, 'The Mystical Mangrove - SUNDARBAN'. 
Though the shot was taken as far as approx 0.8km, handheld from a running boat, but this one is Special and one of my personal favourite. 
King of Kings - "The Royal Bengal Tiger".
On the 1st day of a new Season, wishing all you Tiger lover a Tigerful year ahead ??

She was later identified as the resident female of Dobanki watch tower.

Star male at Jogi Mahal, full story by Sudhir Garg.

Something highly interesting to watch.. On 14th of this month, June 2016 we were on a routine safari near main entrance of Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, and a big male tiger "Star male" was camping around one recently killed Sambhar.. during evening hours he was relaxing  near the big pond and almost half of his body was lying under water. In fact he was almost sleeping and we waited nearby in case he wakes up or take some action. After few minutes we watched three huge crocodiles moving slowly towards the Tiger ( In Inset)  and gradually inching towards close to him. If this had been some any other small animal ...it must hv been his last day for sure lying like some big feast on a silver platter for hungry crocodiles. But they stopped moving forward at distance  of about 50 feet  sensing not an easy prey for them.  The sequence goes on for full 15/20 minutes and they were still there when we left them as our closing time approaching fast ...!! 

June/2016
