thanks @Ashutosh 

I remember T1’s case, it was sad. he had been injured prior in the year (february) he survived that incident, only to die later in the tragic hit and run case. he was a tiger often seen crossing the underpasses and highways. it was a sad ending for such a marvelous tiger that we were able to follow periodically over the years. also you’re right, even though these underpasses are good overall. they have their pros and cons. ultimately i think more of these will help the wildlife tremendously in the years to come. i’m one of those people who started following the lives of these animals a little over 10 years ago or so, population back then was odd 1000 + tigers and in the last decade so much has changed for the better but there are also a lot of issues that need to be addressed. rampant poaching is still one of the biggest threat next to dangerous roads and highways unfortunately.

Chanda Tigress from 2013 (mother of T120/Yoda)

A tiger that has changed our perceived notion of tiger behavior in recent times is T-120. Ever wondered where the legendary tigers of today got their awesome genes from? In a series of throwback images from the past - way back in the past, let's take a look at these legendary tigers who created the hulks of today.
Meet Chanda, mother of T-120. Chanda is the first litter of the legendary T-19, Krishna.
Fathered by T-3, Bahadur, and T-63, Chanda, T-120, the legend of today was born. Now we know where he gets his deadly looks from.
T-63, Chanda, Ranthambhore National Park, Sawai Madhopur, 17th March 2013, 7:24 AM

Pinstripe male from Kaziranga - Early 2022

Pinstripe male of Kaziranga from yesterday’s sighting, easily one of the biggest male tiger out there. Nov/2022


@Roflcopters , Kuhani / Shiva's cub is looking good. Have the cubs separated from their mom now and living independently? I guess there were 3 cubs right? Have they been named yet?

two males and 1 female if i’m not mistaken, the cub i posted is named “Raja” and i don’t think the other two are officially named yet. also they are just about old enough to disperse on their own.

Thanks @Roflcopters for sharing the info.  Like

The Prince of Khitauli - Chota Bheem ??? 

He is one of the most docile males I have come across in #Bandhavgarh ? and incredibly comfortable around vehicles. Born to Mahaman Female (Sr.) and The Legendary Bheem, this guy covers a sizeable territory in Khitauli and Pachpedhi

On several occasions he has been seen mating with Tara, Katibaah, Darrha Bachi and Bajrang’s sister. 

It is unclear whether the first litter of Tara was fathered by him or Muda Tara Male (or both) ?

Mighty Bheem, the father of Chota Bheem. his legacy continues! 

I’m not sure if many of you are familiar with Bandhavgarh’s history, it was officially declared a National Park on March/23/1968 and it was widely believed in the 70’s that there were no tigers. Banka was one of the first male sighted in the late 70’s, Banka believed to have been born in the late 70’s took prominence in 1983 and ruled the park until 1991. Charger, who most of us know appeared and took over from Banka. he ruled the park 1991-1999 & died in (2000). this continued on to B2, Jobhi, Bheem, MR X, Mahaman and countless other males that we now know. all of these tigers are the direct descendants of Banka, Sita and Charger. 

here is Banka from (1985, all pictures shot from elephant back on 35mm reversal film recovered digitally and minimally processed for color corrections.) Credits to Amit Kher for the photos.

Chota Dadiyal hanging in some of the vacant territories of Bajrang, who’s nowhere to be seen. most likely gone for good or possibly recovering from his fights with Taru. Nov/2022


*This image is copyright of its original author


Paras (Mowgli’s brother) seen injured after a fight with Taru in Junona, as per Jignesh bhai’s info. Shiva has pushed him completely out of Kolsa range and Paras throughout the year has been seen all over the place with Junona being one of his last spots. Chota Dadiyal also comes all the way to Junona, however he’s much younger and will be no match to the dominance of Taru in the present day. Chota Dadiyal will have to be very careful. Taru is in his prime and has defeated 4 males since the monsoon with the recent victim being Paras. Nov/2022
