Its known that Amur tigers now are colonizing the areas north of Amur river but its surprise for me that they have moved so far on the north. See where is on the map Blagoveshchensk, its far beyond Ussuriland:

I don't think we have any particular data for this mighty specimen with exception of the location where the photo was made.

I got the image from here:

Chanda to Betul, Maharashtra to MP: Tiger's 350 km journey longest in country.

The tiger from Chandrapur Super Thermal Power Station that migrated to neighbouring MP only to end up in Satpura Power Station in Sarni, got his freedom this month.

The 2.5-year-old tiger was released into the wild in Bori Wildlife Sanctuary (518sqkm) part of the Satpura Tiger Reserve (1,500 sqkm core and 700 sqkm buffer), that he so narrowly missed after such a record-breaking journey. The area is a good habitat, as all villages here have been relocated. Grasslands have added to a good prey base too.


*This image is copyright of its original author


Due to the bad habit caused by his "upbringing" he had to be retrained to life in the wild & was shifted to a specialised 6hc. enclosure at Kanha (that had raised other orphan tigers) after 10 days of cat'nmouse...
Considering its history (killed two people), it was to be released in Van Vihar, Bhopal, for display but forest officials gave a second thought because he was young & carried Maharastra genes.

“We released live chitals into the enclosure and, during the 50-odd days, the tiger killed over 7. After a go-ahead from experts, it was radio-collared and released on 1st February", said SK Singh, field director of Satpura. 

So far so good.

Disappointing event as the Maharashtra tiger that travelled 500kms to MP, strayed out of Satpura Tiger Reserve again & was captured for the second time from the exact same spot near Betul town, after 6hour operation. 
The Satpura Reserve is spread over 2,100 sqkm, 71% of which of which is core area. There are around 40 tigers in STR.

Officials concluded this tiger may love to travel, but he’s a lazy hunter who went back for cattle despite the area having more than sufficient wild prey. 





This time the 2.5-year-old male weighting 178kg is may be shifted to Van Vihar Safari Park for life, or to Kanha's training enclosure for a longer time. Conflicting reports...

The average comes to 223 kg's (492 lb), n=30

Good information, I appreciate your updates.

Just like a side note, the table that I made, using only the 21 males from scientific documents and corroborated news reports, I got an average of 220 kg (range= 184 - 261 kg), which is a diference of only 3 kg. For females, I have an average of 137 kg (n=29, range=106 - 177 kg).

That means that even excludind 9 males, the change is not as dramatic as we can think.

Just one question, did you include the male of 345 kg from Pilibhit?

Guys, there's something peculiar about the work of Smith et al. that was quoted by Raúl Valvert (https://www.scribd.com/document/55287778...from_embed). Valvert stated that the heaviest wild male Bengal tigers in his work were from Chitwan National Park in Nepal, with average weights of 221 kg (487 pounds) on adjusted bellies, and that these were figures for 7 male tigers from the work of Smith et al. and Sunquist:

*This image is copyright of its original author


*This image is copyright of its original author



Smith et al. (https://www.jstor.org/stable/3808080?ori...b_contents) said that between 1973 and 1980, 154 attempts to capture tigers had been made, with tigers being seen on 109 attempts. They gave a table on the tigers, including their age groups and numbers: 7 cubs, 4 subadult females, 19 adult females (altogether 23 subadult and adult females), 12 subadult males, and 7 adult males (altogether 19 subadult and adult males), and altogether, these are 49 tigers in the table, but then they said that a total of 26 tigers (15 males and 11 females) were immobilized, with 15 of them having been recaptured 1–4 times, and then that the tigers were immobilized and successfully located on 49 occasions.

How is this contradiction possible? 26 tigers being recorded on 49 occasions doesn't mean 49 tigers being recorded altogether (which is what the table says).

The table in the original document of 1983 says "7 males", but Waveriders suggested that probably that is the number of captures, not the specimens. I asked this to Dr Sunquist and Dr Smith, but for the moment I have no answer.

Even then, we actually know 4 males captures (M102 - 200 kg, M105 - 272+ kg, M126 - 272+ kg & "Bange Bhale" - 204 kg) , which only two are included in the table of the document of 1983 (M102 and M105). So if we belive in the estimation of Waveriders, probably only 3-4 males were captured in Nepal and adding the other two reported after the document was published, the number of males could be about 5-6 specimens. 

Also, as far I remember tigerluver mentioned that other two males were reported to weight 272+ kg that, apparently are not included in the table, making the sample between 7-8 males.

At the end, if they are actually "7 captures" and not "7 males", and if we included the other two males captured latter, we got an average figure of 227 kg "empty belly", using the adjusted weights in this form: M102 - 184 kg, M105 - 261 kg, M126 - 260 kg & "Bange Bhale" - 204 kg. The last one was not adjusted because it was not baited, according with Mishra (2010).

@GuateGojira

My assumption was that these 26 tigers weighed, and the other 49 tigers mentioned in the other table are referring to different years. The 26 tigers represent one study period, and the other 49 tigers was a different research occasion when they got scales greater then 227 kg.


The 26 tigers they refer to in the paper is the tigers they weighed WHEN they only had a max 227 kg scale. The 49 tigers mentioned is when they got the 272 kg scales.

Keep note, that the subadult tigers mentioned in Sunquist et al 1981 and Smith et al 1983 may have become adults on their second immobilization, thus they would be included as adults on their second weighing.


I would like to mention another important thing Guate

Eric Dinerstein in his book below mentions a tiger of 560 lbs from Baghmara forest. I think this is another male!

You have a good point in mentioning that male of 560 lb+ of Baghmara. My concern is when that tiger was darted, it says that Dr Dinerstein was present, which suggest that probably was not included in the paper of the other weights of 1980. We know that other tigers were darted after the publication of that document.
 
Now, which tiger was this “Baghmara” male? Was actually M126 in the last capture? Was a completely different male? I will like to investigate a little more about this. Based in the map in page 48 of Dr McDougal, Baghmara was in the north-central part of the park, close to Lame Tal and near the southern part of the Narayani River.

I will investigate a little more about this male tiger.

Police find two tigers in Hanoi woman's fridge

Police found two frozen tigers in a fridge and two soup kettles filled with animal bones in an outdoor kitchen in Hanoi, Vietnamese newspapers reported on Wednesday. 


*This image is copyright of its original author


The 40-year-old woman confessed to police she hired three experts to cook tiger bones to make traditional medicines that she sold for about $800 per 100 grams. Police arrested the woman and the three cooks.
The woman stored the tigers in a fridge inside her apartment and cooked outside the building in an area where people regularly gathered to eat porridge for breakfast.
Although Vietnam is party to a treaty to protect endangered species, animals and animal parts are still smuggled from neighbouring countries and around Vietnam for use as medicine.

“She has been doing this publicly for a long time,” Tienphong (Vanguard) newspaper quoted a neighbour as saying. “The smell from the kitchen polluted the neighbourhood.”
The two adult Indochinese tigers, weighing 250 kg and estimated to cost about $20,000 (9,900 pounds) each, could have been bought from Myanmar or Laos, newspaper reports quoted officials as saying.
“The tigers could have been bought in Laos and transported back to Vietnam by ambulances or hidden in coffins,” forest ranger Vuong Tri Hoa was quoted as saying by Nong Nghiep Vietnam (Agriculture Vietnam) newspaper.
Police also found four bear paws, ivory and various other wild animal parts in the woman’s apartment on Tuesday, the reports said...

Size of the tiger - August 2019:

I decided to publish my new tables about the tigers measured and weighed by scientists in this moment. The reason is that after that bad experience that I suffer when I lost all my data the last year, I don't want to pass for the same thing. So, everytime that I will have new information, I will try to put it here, like a database and at the same time, like a backup.

So here are the tables that includes all the tigers measured and weighed by scientists in the field. It includes only those published in scientific documents, appart from 5 males and 4 females (Bengal ones) that were reported in the news but that were corroborated by email, plus one that was measured and weighed in cammera. This sample do not exaust all the especimens captured, but only those published.  

First, the tigers from the Indian subcontinent:

*This image is copyright of its original author


The weights of the Nepalese tigers are already adjusted for any stomach content or pregnancy.

Now, the overall list of all the other populations.

Enjoy the information, if you have questions you are free to ask. Until next time.

( This post was last modified: 09-13-2019, 06:34 PM by GuateGojira Edit Reason: added table formating )

On the tigers of Sariska:

I have saw in the last days that this "table" is still on the web:

*This image is copyright of its original author


To be honest, that was not even a table, but a paragraph that I wrote in AVA, as far I remember. Someone took an screeshot and that is all. The point is that the information is the table is very outdated, like some names that are incorrect and the highly disputed weight of 170 kg for the male ST-4. I will not recoment to use it anymore.

I will like to make a new summary of the information that I have:

Tiger ID: Sex: Weight(kg): Release date: Source: Remarks:
ST-1 (T-10) M 220 26/08/2008 Sinha, 2008 About 3.5 years old, know as "Darra male".
ST-2 (T-01) F 170 04/07/2008 Sinha, 2008 About 3 years old, know as "Bachhi - Lakrda - Babli".
ST-3 (T-18) F 143 26/02/2009 Sinha, 2009 About 3.5 years old.
ST-4 (T-12) M 170-~200(?) 20/07/2010 Sinha, 2010 About 6 years old, known as "Tikkoo bhaiyya".
ST-5 (T-44) F 135 28/07/2010 Sebastian, 2010 About 2.5 years old



The sources are just for the weights and in some cases the date of captures. The remarks and the popular names are from other sources.

Why the differences? Well, first of all the names of the tigress ST-2, as I found that the name "Babli" was in fact applied to these tigress and not her sister ST-3.

Second, the weigh of "170 kg" for male ST-4. There is only one source for that weight, but also there is other source (I lost it, by the way) where it says "over 200 kg". Now some posters that actually saw that tiger say that is not posible that an adult male of about 6 years old may weight such a low figure, and I am agree with that. Here are some pictures that I found in this forum (the first one) and on the web (the second and third ones):


*This image is copyright of its original author



*This image is copyright of its original author



*This image is copyright of its original author


Certainly was not a long tiger, and it looks about 180-200 kg, taking in count that the second picture is from 2018 when he was at least 14 years old. The third one is when he died in december of 2018 from the wounds of a fight, some others says that for negligence of the officers as the tiger did not eat in the days when he was in captivity. So I discarted the weight of 170 kg as unreliable. Compare it with the tiger "Dakre" or T-102 from Chitwan NP, Nepal, that weighed 200 kg:

*This image is copyright of its original author


Now, the complain that the weight of 170 kg is too high for a tigress of just over 3 years old is also valid, as that weight is the equivalent of 272 kg for a male tiger, is up to the extream for a mature prime adult. So, this make me to question the reliability of these figures, even if are confirmed by the news papers like "The Hindu". I still remember the case of an Amur tiger that was labeled as "250 kg" in a web publication, latter I contacted the reporter and he told me that was the correct figure, however digging more I contacted the veterinarian that worked with the tiger and he told me that it was of just 185 kg!!!

Sadly, at diference of the scientists of Russia and Thailand, those from India are not very willing to share the information of the size/weight of its captured animals, and although some figures seems correct, those from the specimens ST-2 and ST-4 are disputed. I still used the weight of ST-2 in my last table, but I think that I will reconsider it, specially for the age issue.

Other cases like this are the weights of 185 kg for "Gabbar" and 85 kg for "Choti Tara" from Tadoba-Andari, which were confirmed by email to some poster here, but in the case of the female, it looks obviously incorrect. 

The tigress "Chuchchi" or T-115 from Chitwan NP, Nepal, weighed 98 kg when she died at 15.5 years old in an emaciated state and was killed by a male tiger of over 3 years old, so if the figure of 85 kg is real for "Choti Tara", this was when she was probably still a subadult, not an adult.

Compare with this subadult tigress named "Cinderella" which weighed 94 kg at about 2 years old:

*This image is copyright of its original author

She was still a cub when she weighed 94 kg, more than the allegated weight of "85 kg" for "Choti Tara".

I think that we need to be very carefull with the weights in the news reports and like "Dr Panthera" said, many of those figures or those shared in Facebook are not entirely confirmed or some details are missed.

Like a conclution, for the moment, the weights of ST-1, ST-3 and ST-5 seems reliable and match with they ages, the one of ST-2 is disputed and that of ST-4 is definitelly not reliable. Maybe someone here can contact people that was involved in those captures and try to clarify the issue. I tried, but for the moment I don't have any answer.

T-91 reached Mukandra; Had to hit 2 dots to make him unconscious, scare reached in 4 hours, buzzing roar in reserve 2 hours after opening the cage

The T-91 landed at a quarter of an hour after opening the cage in Dara Enclosure.

Tiger came out of Ranthambore from Bundi jungles from 19 November

Confirmed at night, tiger will be tranquilized by morning

Shifting to CMO monitoring

NTCA temporary ban disrupted shifting. However, immediate shifting was necessary given the tiger's safety. In the monitoring of the CMO, the forest department took action to tranquilize the tiger for the last one week. The CMO was also closely monitored for carrying the tiger from Ramgarh to Mukandra.

Bhaskar Inside Story

After 3 hours I came to my senses and left for Darra

Quota | The task of transporting the Tiger T-91 from Ramgarh to Dara was nothing less than a "surgical strike". Just read the Inside Story of Shifting in Bhaskar, by the life of Rajiv Garg, the wild life doctor of Ranthambore Reserve, who tranquilized the tiger.

5:21 pm Mara Dot: This is the tiger of the royal mood. I know its nature very well. It can only be caught in the dark, it is not visible in the light. The first dot hit Bandra Pol at 5:21 am.

Departure from Ramgarh at 8:15 am: When he regained consciousness at 8:15 he left for Dara. They left with the whole squad. The speed of the canter remained very low till it came out of the forest and came to the main road, then after coming on the highway, it caught pace and kept going. There was a cavalcade of vehicles back and forth.

First step placed in Dara's enclosure at 2:15

After traveling 165 km, he made a canter at the bottom of the hill at Ghati Mata Temple in Dara at 12:08 am. After seeing the surrounding situation, we all boarded the trains and opened the cage door in the canter. But Tiger never landed from the cage. We had no choice but to sit and watch. At around 2:15, as soon as Tiger took the first step on the land of Dara, there was no place for our happiness.

6:12 pm hit the second dot: the place where it was, there was a drain just behind it. The problem could have occurred if it had moved towards the drain after the dot was applied. At 6:12 am, the second dot was unconscious when it appeared again.
