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.

The queen of Ranthambore "NOOR" bringing down a wild boar 
She took nearly 25min to bring it down 
The wild boar was a tough catch 
It never gave up until it's last breath 
They say wild boar can only be brought down by a fully grown male or an highly experienced female tiger 
The meat of the wild boar is so thick sometimes bullets don't go through 
It took everything from the queen to make a meal out of him 
Such an honor to watch this spectacular moment.!

In the Sundarbans, Bengal tigers have been recorded eating snakes, including cobras, besides crocodiles! http://www.fao.org/3/a-am998e.pdf
   

"Tigers as well as estuarine crocodiles of the Sundarbans prefer snakes, even poisonous ones, as their prey. A tiger’s carcass was found in Netidhopani-I compartment on July 17th, 2009. In the post mortem of said male tiger, one king cobra (Ophiophagus hannah) and one monocellate cobra (Naja naja) was found in the stomach in a semi-digested condition."

@BorneanTiger :

About #1655: interesting ! It's the first time I read some cases of interaction between tigers and venomous snakes like king cobra.

As concerns fish and crabs, no wonder...
As concerns turtles, ok too... Because I believed for a long time that, according to Varty, tigers were able to break the turtle's shell with their jaws, unlike the lion. But Varty was wrong. After all he isn't a biologist, only a film maker, and a biased film maker :

By the way, in terms of size, fishs, crabs and turtles are small preys for an adult tiger. Cobra too, but nevertheless, here is an account that tigers kill some venomous snakes for eating them.

The tigress sat in the great grass at Ambezari for close to an hour, biding her time and waiting for darkness to envelop the land.
The sambhar, unaware and nonchalant, continued feasting on the algae that abounds these lakes all year round.
But, a few minutes before sundown, as the water birds made their final foray before retiring for the night, the tigress lost patience and charged. The sambhar stag, just in the nick of time saw a bolt of orange thunder toward him. The supremely lucky stag escaped that evening!
The thrilling chase lasted for a few quick seconds but made the afternoon's wait worth every penny!
What scenes!
