@Rage2277 :

About #1458: bravo for your find, sincerely ! I seriously believe it's the first time I see a tiger chasing a jackal and going to catch it.

Best wishes to you as concerns 2019 and... Great photographic success !

Chota Matka looking very interested in Gaur, he'll be hunting them soon enough if he hasn't started already which I bet he has.

A new Tiger predation account on a Elephant, new to me at least.



We managed to get a trip into the forest in the evening and were very lucky to see an Elephant carcass. We were told that a Tiger had killed the elephant, which was an adolescent and not a fully grown one. But how the Tiger managed to bring it down was a surprise and we couldn't understand. Normally elephants are in groups and how did the tiger manage this!!!!

We could see tiger pugmarks all around the carcass. The belly was open and all intestines were out, typicall of a tiger kill, as they first remove the intestines before they gorge on the meat. A part of its trunk was bitten off. But surprisingly the entire carcass was in tact but for these, and the for some reason, the Tiger had eaten nothing. We have been to Parambikulam several times and never had such a sighting!!!!

It is easy to forget, that most hunts aren´t successful, when people upload mostly those cases, when predators catch prey. Many prey animals are very dangerous if surprise element is lost.

Almost there going for it, then gaur noticed it... maybe a split second more and tiger would have attacked. But who could blame the tiger, gaur is gaur after all.

A sudden cacophony of calls, oozing with palpable tension and anxiety, pierced through the bamboo groves on Dhawajhandi, a call that only means one thing, a tiger who has just charged!
No sooner than i picked up my camera that this happened! A flash of brown, a very quick bolt of orange and silence again!
With hands still trembling and heart racing faster than what i had just experienced, i was really lucky and blessed to document this memorable natural history moment.

P.S: I got barely half a second to shoot so please excuse the slight shake.

P.S.S: Tigers can jump a very long distance and which is pretty evident in the image! Considering the tigress is around 8-9 feet from tail tip to nose tip, you can see a patch of dust glowing in the sunrays to the left of where the tigress is and which indicates the location of her previous contact with the ground - and the distance between the two jumps is clearly longer than the tigress’ 9 feet length! Look closely for yourself to know what incredibly powerful these enchanting cats are! Also, remember that it is a 150-170 (since a female) kilogram animal charging at 50+ kph! Awestruck each time i see these most iconic of predators!

Here is the tiger - buffalo confrontation that I was fortunate enough to see at Kaziranga Wildlife Sanctuary in Assam.

Can you believe I forgot my camera that morning but Di took this picture and shared it with me. — in Kaziranga, Assam, India.

She said the tiger had killed the buffalo's calf, it was in the bushes and vultures were flying overhead.

Not yet, but funny enough I just spoke with my buddy who I did my last trip to India with and we are going to set up a Kaziranga-Bandhavgarh trip, he said it's a little bit of traveling between the 2 parks but nothing we can't handle.
After this Pantanal trip though I'll have to take a bit of time off, I have a ton of Weddings to attend this year as well and those add up.
Maybe in 2020 if I can get my GF to agree.
