There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Please make sure you post videos only and not pics.
I personally think videos gives a better idea on tiger sizes than pics.
There is far less problems with the angles.

IMO these are the two largest tigers in Tadoba NP


1) The BIG BAD DADDY Scarface aka Waghdoh, seems to be a very bulky tiger







2) The Ookhan, son of Yeda Anna. This guy was tall, long and bulky. Look at this video how he dwarfed his sister and father even when he was a subadult. Eventhough the 3 tigers were shown seperate, we can clearly see Ookhan's size

3) Jai from Umred-Karhandla Wildlife Sanctuary is a very large tiger. IMO Jai is bigger than Waghdoh dimensionally (taller and longer). Jai should have one of the largest skulls among wild Bengals from India.

This is the video of Jai when he was around 20 months old.






This is another video of subadult Jai, we can see him with his mother "A- mark tigress" and brother "Veeru"
In the video first comes the "A-mark tigress", then "Jai" and finally 'Veeru".

4) Late Bokha was a very large tiger from Bandhavgarh. The size of Bokha was never appreciated, because the fame of B2 overshadowed the size of Bokha. He is a long and very bulky male with a shy nature. I put Bokha right up in the league of Hairyfoot and Madla and no less.

5) Bamera male aka Shashi is a large dominant male. Bamera is not as long as Bokha (Bamera is little shorter than Bokha, Madla etc in head body length) but very bulkier for his length.


Here is a video of Bamera, listen to what the tourists says

Prime Bamera

To translate the first video, the tourists are essentially saying, "What size this tiger has!" and "What a male this is!" Great thread.

6) Singham from Bandhavgarh, doesnt look very long like Bokha, Jobhi etc. But a very bulky and fat tiger. Could be one of the heaviest in Bandhavgarh.

Yes everyone is welcome to add videos (new, old and everything) of different tigers from different parts of India.
In our forum we've been concentrating more on pics than vids.
So I think its time to give importance to vids too.

This is the wild caught tiger, but captive now.
Correct?
He looked large but definitely can see the difference in body type compared to a Tiger that lives in the wild.

Those Kaziranga Tigers are just tanks, its so hard to get close up images in that landscape though, makes it tough to get up close pictures.

He was kept inside a fencing at Bandhavgarh.

Ive no idea what happened after that.
