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.

Name : T-25 = Dollar male = Zalim

Location : Ranthambore National Park

Year of Birth : 2008

Ancestry : Son of Jhumroo(T-20) and Lahpur-Nagditigress (T-22), Brother of T-24 and Indala

Status : RIP

Sex : Male

Species : panthera tigris tigris

Dollar, as the name given to this male tiger owing to the $ (Dollar) shape on his right flank stripe pattern has really amazed the tiger lovers. The story of Dollar is very interesting and is the most peculiar character in Ranthambore. First of all, his majestic appearance in front of the visitors; and once the reputation goes, he particularly does not enjoy the human presence and chases the vehicles out of rage if he is not in the mood to interact with them.

Preferably, T-25 has marked his territory far in the forest and due to the ferocity with which he tries to usurp the territory of other tigers; is also being called Zalim (in Hindi that means grievous). People have found him chasing the vehicles, growling and ready to attack.

Being typical of the nature of a male tiger, Dollar's behavior and territorial aggression remained consistent but his recent behavior has really amazed everyone. From last year, Dollar has been found with two female cubs who were orphaned last February (2011) when their mother T-5 succumbed to intestinal illness and died in the hilly Kachida region at the northwest corner of the reserve. T-25 surprisingly is not only protecting these cubs but also playing the role of mother to these two. That's quite amazing to the male tiger's nature who otherwise commonly seen as a threat to the cubs. Over the last year, he has turned quite softer too and is hardly 'Zalim' any longer, the name that he acquired a couple of years ago by the observers.

T25 aka Zalim aka Dollar male is reported dead yesterday by the Ranthambore forest officials.

He was the brother of T24 aka Ustaad aka Sultanpur.

T25 was famously known for raising his cubs by himself after the death of their mother.

Cause of death is unclear.



RIP DOLLAR Male

@Apollo, T25 aka Zalim died because of territorial disputes and an autopsy revealed that his skull bone was crushed and there were canine marks on his body.

Thanks @Ashutosh 

T25 Aka Dollar was a special tiger, RIP. it’s only gonna get worse for Ranthambore tigers in the next 5 years or so. no room for tigers to move around anymore. the park is at full capacity, which means more violent fights. normally tigers tend to avoid serious conflict and will try to find a different home but when the space is limited. extreme measures are taken. we saw this in Bandipur,  Kanha (Mukki) and Corbett. Tadoba is also headed that direction, except tigers their have found the lost corridors that links them to Nagzira, Umred and Brahmapuri forest division. Infact, the dominant males of Nagzira and Umred Karhandla are all originally from Tadoba.

In an evening of March,18  in tourist season, a subadult individual was seen playing with a Bisleri Plastic Bottle near a watch tower of Kaziranga national park in central range. He was unaware of our presence and walked fearlessly very near to the watch tower, and i had to retract the zoom in my lens.

Rudra - The new male on the block !

Sired by Kakarghat Male and nurtured by Shivanzari Female, this four year old tiger is on a mission to establish his territory. But is he ready to ostracize legendary Matkasur from his kingdom and claim as his own? Only time will tell !

Backwater boss would be from Kabini in S. India while Katezari would be from Tadoba in C. India
The Backwater male was also known as Mastigudi 
He has passed now

Katezari was a Ruling male in Tadoba a few years ago but hasn't been seen since
