I cant wait to see Shiva in the next year or two. I wonder how he is going to match up to Waghdoh.

What a TANK the Kanha male is. Cant wait to see him grow as well.
There are some seriously large new tigers ready to take the reigns of the old rulers. It looks like the dawn of the new generation is coming soon.
We have already seen Bamera start to feel the pressure, I wonder how much longer until
Raja, Waghdoh, shivaji (if he is still alive) T24 etc. lose their territories.

Dear Tiger Lovers,

Today we have immense pride in introducing the most feared one of all, the Kuwalji Male, Fateh (T-42). Fateh in Hindi language means Victory. This is part 1 of his lifestory. Please take your time to go through his journey. Named after the Father of Ranthambhore, the late Fateh Singh Rathore, Fateh is known to possess a bad temperament. Fateh not only has a reputation of charging at vehicles, but also has the dubious distinction of charging a vehicle in hot pursuit for 2 Kilometres at a stretch !!!

Born in 2006-2007 in a litter of 3 cubs to Tigress Husnaara (T-30) and father Jhumroo (T-20), adulthood forced Fateh to separate from his family and travel all the way to the Devpura & Kuwalji area (in the southernmost fringes of the park) sometime in early 2010 to carve out a territory for himself. While his brother Surjan (T-43) chose an adjoining area, sister Sharmilee (T-44) was trans-located to Sariska.

Although known for poor density of ungulates / prey species, Kuwalji already had 2 young resident Tigers, siblings T-36 Male & T-37 Female. Presence of villages on the periphery and stray cattle in abundance had historically made Tigers of Kuwalji to almost survive exclusively on cattle diet. Male Tigers are fiercely territorial and Fateh is no different. In October 2010, he killed the resident male T-36 in a brutal fight and took over the territory. However, fate had something else in store for him. Stay tuned for part 2 of his story !

There have been many debates on the differences between lions and tigers. Most, so it seems, agreed lions of large subspecies could be a bit taller than tigers of large sub species. My take is the difference between both is close to zilch in absolutes. Lions seem a bit taller because males in particular have a different posture. They also are a bit shorter. They could be relatively taller, but I'm not sure as there just are no data.

Anyhow. This post has a few photographs of well-known male Indian tigers. They were not known because they were exceptionally tall, but because they were impressive to many who actually saw them.

This is Raja. A tall tiger? Difficult to judge, but he seems more about muscle than something else.

Here he is again, now between two Jeeps.

For those not quite convinced about the length of his legs:

One more. Wagdoh also isn't known for being exceptionally tall. But he apparently is well over average:

The point I want to make is tigers, or more accurately, Indian wild tigers, could be on a par with lions in South Africa regarding leg length. If not, they are very close. Mental pictures often are a result of perceptions. Head length and head posture have a positive effect, whereas body length and stripes have the opposite effect.

Fully agree, from the data that I have compiled, the tallest specimens came from South Africa (mean of 104 cm). The tigers of Cooch Behar and Central India average 1 m at the shoulder, so the difference is of only 4 cm. However, overall, the lion is no taller than the Bengal tigers, after all, the difference is less than 2 cm!!!

Male African lions (wild specimens only):
* 107.1 cm (n=42) Ferreira & Funston (2010) – South Africa
* 101 cm (n=50). Range: 86-109 cm. Stevenson-Hamilton (1947) – South Africa.
* 97.2 cm (n=8). Range: 86-108 cm. Edouard Foá (1986) – Central Africa.
* 96.2 cm (n=14). Range: 81.3 cm-107 cm. Meinertzhagen (1938) – Kenya, East Africa.
* 92.2 cm (n=3). Range 89-96.5 cm. Edward Bennet (1914) – East Africa.
 114 cm Max. recorded in the Wild (Pitman, 1945).
Average: 98.7 cm – 101.4 cm only the larger samples.

Male Bengal tigers (wild specimens only):
* 109.3 cm (n=6). Range: 104-114 cm. Brown (1893) – Purneah, India.
* 103 cm (n=2) Range: 102-104 cm. Meinertzhagen (1938) – Southwest India.
* 100 cm (n=43). Range: 88-114 cm. Cooch Behar (1908) – Northeast India.
* 99 cm (n=42). Range: 91-112 cm. Brander (1923) – Central India.
 114 cm Max. recorded in the Wild (Cooch Behar (1908) – Brown (1893)).
Average: 102.8 cm – 99.5 cm only the larger samples.
