The meow of tiger/snow leopard/clouded leopard.

Interestingly, only the Asian Pantherines can do meowing.

Duet, lion and lioness. This couple makes their presence well-known. Quite loud roaring for lion in this one, imo.

Lion as the most archetypal African Pantherine would produce a much deeper chuffing than "meow", thus they produce something like "duet".

The Asian Pantherines have usually preserved many commonly converged features with the smaller Felines, while the African Pantherines have much more diverged features.

An excerpt from @peter post in the "Tigers are social animals?" thread

"Remember the information about a tigress with four cubs followed by an enormous male brown bear in Russia? Wolverine posted about it in the tiger extinction thread some months ago. The bear stalked her in order to confiscate her kills. Rangers knew and considered hunting the bear, as there was no need for him to stalk the tigress for so long. Before they acted, tigress 'Rashel' did. They heard her complain. At least, that's what they thought. They had never heard the sound she made before. Within days, a male tiger appeared. In the video Wolverine posted, you can see him and the tigress. He was definitely reassuring her. The bear got wind of the changing tide and decided to move. Could have been a result of the hunting season, but my guess is there were other reasons."

Do we have any other accounts of similar vocalizations? This sounds out of the norm, especially the fact the guys hadn't heard the sound in question before

As far as I know, this is only case, where is suspected that tigress would have in some way called help. And I haven´t seen any information about it, that what kind of voice that might have been. Was it a coincidence or did it actually happen, I think that any guess is as good as some other. If someone knows other case(s) it would be really interesting.

In the Russian Far East, conservation is taken very serious. This means that poachers are caught and jailed. Newspapers and stations quite often report about arrests. Everything I read and saw (videos) strongly suggests that rangers are motivated and well-informed. This, most probably, is the reason they knew about tigress 'Rashel', her cubs and the large male brown bear who followed and robbed 'Rashel' for some time. Quite something in a region where tigers need large territories.

Before the rangers had taken a decision on the bear, tigress 'Rashel' acted. They heard her call more than once. They had never heard a similar sound and guessed it was either a complaint about the bear or a call for help. A few days later, the father of the cubs visited the tigress. The videos that were posted suggest he was trying to reassure her. Not much later, the bear disappeared.  

I never heard of a similar case before. In order to find out a bit more, one of us needs to contact those involved.

Yorkshire Coast Nature & Indus Experiences group safari trip to Corbett National Park in Northern India February 2019. Our first encounter with a Bengal Tiger was unforgettable. A female in the breeding season looking for her mate the day before Valentines! we all held our breath as the roar came closer and closer, then she appeared!

WITH LOVE FROM THE NAINI TAL ZOO

They thought this tiger had killed and eaten a woman. He was arrested and charged, but denied. The video, however, says he knew more about the case than he was willing to admit. In the end, he got a life sentence: 




 

AND KRUGER TOO

When things went from bad to worse in Mocambique some years ago, hundreds of thousands left the country. Many of them wanted to move to South Africa, but they didn't want them over there. This is the reason the refugees used the Kruger Park to enter South Africa. They came at night. Not a few of them were received by lions. Although the exact number is unknown, rangers guessed that hundreds were killed and eaten by lions. 

Some stories of survivors were posted a few years ago. It was a nightmare for those who thought trees offered some kind of safety. 

The reason they suspected lions were involved, apart from the stories of the refugees who survived the ordeal at night, was the different attitude. Many rangers noticed a change in attitude.

The male in the video is an example. When they found him with a lioness, he acted bold and aggressive. He no doubt wanted to discourage them, but the method used was somewhat different from your average male lion interested in a lioness. He seemed to have lost all respect for twolegs.  

In the end, the photographs gave him away:

This was in a way interesting blog writing.

"What I’m getting at here is that when one lion starts roaring, for whatever reason – and I think there might be a lot more subtle information conveyed in the roars than we are aware of – he may well start the next lion in the territorial chain roaring, and so on and so on, down the length of the Kruger Park or whatever conservation area they happen to be in, and the whole lion population might be in song during the night."

Read the blog if interested to get a better idea about it, what happens in the nights of Africa :)
