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               : T1=Kallu =Kallua
Location           : Bhandavgarh National Park
Year of Birth    : Nov 2007
Ancestry           : Son of B2 and Mirchaini
Status               : Unknown
Sex                   : Male
Species             : panthera tigris tigris  

Born in the monsoon of 2007, Kallu was one of two sons born to mother Tulsi (R10) and father Sundar, and was bought up in the Mirchani area of his mother’s territory. He was the smaller and less aggressive of the two brothers, which meant that as he grew towards maturity, he was increasingly at odds with his brother Mallu (T2).

As Kallu grew up, it was often noted that he was increasingly hungry as his brother guarded his food jealously, not letting Kallu feed. This meant that he increasingly resorted to eating dangerous food like porcupine to satisfy his hunger. When he left his mother, Kallu stayed in the hills of Tala, moving from Mirchani to Ghorademon while his domineering brother went towards Sher marg in Magdhi.

Kallu was often intimidated by his father Sundar and other dominant male Shashi and was no longer welcome in the area. He left the park in early November 2010 and we have not seen him since.

Name               : See-off
Location           : Corbett National Park
Year of Birth    : Unknown
Ancestry           : Unknown
Status               : Live
Sex                   : Male
Species             : panthera tigris tigris 

The reason See-off has this name is because if you come heads up to him and he has no passage to his sides, he charges and make sure to "see you off"! He doesn't mind if you follow him but never likes it if you are coming at him. He has a beautiful orange coat and is the dominant male in the khinnanauli range. See off has taken over "Bhola's" territory. He is a very romantic male and shares his territory with "Sharmele" the tigress. See-Off lost one of his canines during the territorial battle with Bhola.

I would love to do a profile for Tyson but unfortunately I have only the left side shots of Tyson.
It would be great if someone can provide us with a right side and front shots of Tyson.

Name               : T-39=Noor=Mala
Location           : Ranthambore National Park
Year of Birth    : 2008
Ancestry           : Daughter of T13 tigress and T12 male tiger and sister of T38 male tiger
Status               : Live
Sex                   : Female
Species             : panthera tigris tigris


Known as Mala (Hindi for ‘necklace’) due to the decorative bead-like stripes on her flanks. Growing up in Guda/Sultanpur, the southernmost part of the park, she was popular among tourists who enjoyed seeing her as a cub.

Soon after separating from her mother at the age of 2, her mother had another litter of two cubs with T12 who was soon after relocated to Sariska in 2010.

As a result, Mala's father’s territory fell vacant and Sultanpur (T24) took over. Now, her mother's new litter was in danger, threatened by the new male who would try to kill her cubs. The new family left the area, allowing Mala to take over her mother’s territory under the domain of the Sultanpur male T24.

This shows that how much it is difficult to make a tiger profile. Thank you very much prathap for doing hard work and making this thread.

Name               : Bhola = Blade
Location           : Corbett National Park
Year of Birth    : Unknown
Ancestry           : Unknown
Status               : Unknown
Sex                   : Male
Species             : panthera tigris tigris 


Bhola the male tiger came to limelight after the very famous territorial battle with the mighty Khali. Bhola ruled Khichar area of Bijrani, but later he was chased off by Khali. Bhola then moved to khinnanauli range and recently a much bigger new male tiger called "see-off" expelled him out of his territory. Bhola was initially thought to be dead, but he appeared couple of months later. Bhola was not seen after June 2012 and many say he passed away.

T20 aka Jhumroo a 11 year old male tiger was finally tranquilized and later released deep inside the protected area. As per eye witness Jhumroo, who is otherwise very shy in  nature was probably enjoying his meal of cattle when a villager got too close to his comfort and was attacked. As  news started spreading & place was full of tamasha viewers, one  more man got entangled in the bushes and fell, he was also attacked  by  tiger leaving him with multiple injuries to nurse. By this time more villagers had gathered at the spot, approximately 700 in number making the rescue operation more difficult. Before things could turn ugly, forest department under leadership of DCF (Core) Mr. Y.K Sahu along with one forest guard Rajveer & tourism driver Raees Bhai swiftlytranquilized the tiger and moved him away to safety of protected area. Mr. Sahu lead his team from front-reached the spot himself & directed the entire operation, he wasinfact first to walk towards tiger post darting to ensure that this gentle beast was sedated properly . Sensing mood of crowd, he also moved the tiger immediately from spotto avoid any undesired incident. Since the department personnel were clearly outnumbered & crowd had already man handled the local SDM & some police officials during theoperation, this surely was a wise move. The tiger has been sighted by forest department today afternoon in the area he was released yesterday & seems to be doing fine. During monsoon time village cattle startsflocking the forest for grazing, as the natural prey base shift to higher places these animals become an easy catch for big cats. The search for easy prey had probablytaken this 280 kg giant to forest periphery on the eastern side of Park boundary. 




 


Nice info Pckts.
The 280Kg weight given to Jhumroo is an estimate or real weight ?

Here is a pic of Jhumroo being sedated and carried

I'm not sure. But 280kg is right in the Madla range. So while a Tiger must be large it needs not be of "Waghdoh" size to attain that weight. So its probably a pretty good estimate.

 

 



Yeah many say Jhumaroo is a very large tiger.

Hi pckts
Do check the 2nd and 3rd pics of Bamboo Ram, the stripe pattern doesnt match.
Either it should be different tigers or the image should be rotated vertically (turing the left side to right side or vice versa).
Do check it and let me know.
Thanks

I'm sure I can be mistaken, I only use photos in which they specifically state the tigers name.
That being said, the facial patterns on the first two are identical and the third is the only one where the tiger is standing at a side profile and you cannot compare its side stripes to the 2nd one since one is laying down which will bring stripes closer together or wrinkle them, etc.
I could definitely be wrong as well.
