Tiger Predation

@Jeffrey Then the tiger is able to break the vertebrae of the bovines to be able to reach spinal cord if the bite is at top of their neck. The bite force of tiger is surely much more than the studies present. Jaguar too breaks the bone of cranium of caiman and other prey. The bite force of tiger as per my estimate is slightly higher than jaguar but not on pound for pound basis.

A tiger is able to break the verebrae ob bovines and reaching the spinal cord. It depending on the neck bite and how large the bovine is the larger the more "difficult" it get. 

Pound for pound the sumatran tiger could maybe rival the jaguar's bite force.

ADULT RHINO KILL BY TIGER

Tigers in Kaziranga often feed on rhino calves, but direct attacks on adult rhinos is not common. In this image, a male tiger killed an adult rhino that was foraging in a shallow water body by jumping on its back from the higher bank and by breaking its neck. It then intermittently fed on its very rare and huge kill. 
Location: Kaziranga National Park, Assam

Convo that followed:

Sudharsan Sathyam Superb capture! May be it's feeding on a dead rhino! Coz it's highly impossible to penetrate it's skin

Deep Shubhra Biswas Sudharsan Sathyam Tigers are known to attack and hunt down adult rhinos at Dudhwa... So it's not that impossible


Del Hanson Amazing record shot!!! Which zone is this?

Rajarshi Banerji Del Hanson Thank you. I don't disclose location of wildlife.


Vishal Shah Already dead, there has not been a tiger taking down a grown Rhino this far. It is hard to trust this claim without video.

Rajarshi Banerji You would be amazed if you interact with the field staff of the various beats of Kaziranga Core Area :) :)

Siddharth SinghSiddharth  At Dudhwa a Male called Rhino Hitter has taken down more than 5 Rhinos so far ..

Deep Shubhra Biswas Vishal ShahTigers are known to hunt down adult rhinos at Dudhwa for long... And those claims at Dudhwa were properly investigated and then claimed tiger kills... So this one is nothing new...

Siddharth Singh Deep Shubhra Biswas yes it was camera trapped by Ganesh Bhatt sir .. 5 Tigers on a carcass.. always between Nov to Feb .. and it was a Male and Female working together





Ryan Lunney Did you see the Tiger make the kill?


Siddharth SinghSiddharth and 77 others are consistently creating meaningful discussions with their posts. Ryan Lunney I have seen the stalking.. it's like a game .. once the Tiger learns to kill .. nothing can stop them .. in Dudhwa they damaged the hind legs of the Rhino and started eating it while it was alive .. Blood Pressure is a major tool the Tiger uses.. of the Rhino and the elephants

Rajarshi Banerji Ryan Lunney I have over 100 shots of this sequence. And another 200+ of the feeding, which was later shared by a monitor lizard, an Adjutant Stork and Crows. :)Can't share any more information right now. Siddharth Singh Brilliant shots! I have one of a tiger stalking the rhino in the dark. (Spotlit by the park staff and photo not of a very good quality)

A rhino cow, but still an incredible kill.

interesting dicussion, not as rare as it sounds. ofcourse not the norm but rhinos are certainly on the menu if a determined tiger really wants to go to that extreme level. KZT085 has been documented doing the same, Rhino killer from Dudhwa has killed close to five (documented proof by the field department) the actual number could be higher, it takes a very high skilled tiger to tackle down such a formidible prey. a task that may seem impossible to some. certainly not impossible when there has been 7 documented cases just in the last two years. tfs!

Yes, wild boar are dangerous prey for any predator. In Russia especially where a male wild boar might weigh 700+ pounds.

Krishna's Cubs making a Boar Kill

Mritunjay Tiwary
Two to tango!! Wild boars are a tough nut to crack ; they are feisty, combative and don't go down without a fight. Despite a concerted, joint attack these two#sub-adult #tiger #cubs took a good half an hour to bring down the #wildboar.

Moment Of Glory - T 19 Cubs Making Kill | RTR '18

---------------------------------------------------
A proud moment for the mother ...... 2 of her cubs made a successful kill of a wild pig, though they made it a little messy in the beginning they held on to their nerves and made this final move to choke the windpipe.

While their mother T19 (Krishna) was away trying to find food for her little souls. These little rascals aged around ~20 months now made this courageous act. It is quite a proud achievement for the cubs and an indication of a successful rearing ......they sure will make a feast when their mother returns.

Two Brothers - Tadoba Tiger Reserve

22nd October 2018

This incredible sighting at late evening left us spellbind. These Sub Adults from Tadoba (Cubs of tigress Choti Tara) were actually seen in action while on kill. These brothers still seem to be learing the process. The way they were chasing the little one, the way they took hold on him, the way they were still unsure about what needs to be done further....was something very unusual. 
The 45 mins show ended in blindfold as the tiny Sambar Deer Calf was still alive in those deadly jaws

This account proves that even a tigress is a very formidable opponent for even a prime Bull gaur in a fight to the death:

Tigress and Bull gaur both die in the fight.

Game Animals of Malaya: (Bombay Natural History Society)

Tiger kills a big male wild boar in a fight: (Page 9)

"I was being poled up the river Muar, and just as we were rounding a bend we spied a big boar crossing a sand spit on his way to drink. My boatmen quickly allowed the boat to drift into a clump of tall rushes where we were fairly well concealed, and as I was putting my rifle together I saw the boar suddenly turn around and face the jungle, and in the next instant a tiger walked out."...

"It is difficult to describe what happened next - so quick were the movements on the part of both animals. They both charged and it looked as though they must meet with great force; but such speed was displayed in leaps and side steps that the result, in what seemed a second of time, was that they were facing one another again twenty feet apart, and the boar still with his back to the river."...

"The same movements were repeated three or four times but I think the tiger must have done damage each time as the boar appeared to be weakening. The end came when the boar made a rush. With one movement the tiger side stepped and leapt on its back and was dragged like this into the jungle, where shortly the dying gasps of the pig told me that all was over."..
