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.

All I know is he is about 3 years old, had migrated to Navegaon but came back and his neck is not proportional to his body size possibly because of the collar.

Thanks @Rage2277. They really need to come up with better names than chota this and chota that, especially when another chota matka was electrocuted like a year ago.

‘Functional shifting’ and mechanism of tiger-predation on the Indian Rhinoceros

"In Kaziranga National Park, tiger predation is the second biggest threat to the Indian rhino after poaching. In this Park, during 1972-1978 (upto March) the number of rhino calves killed by the tigers were 1972 – 4; 1973 – 16; 1974 – 6; 1975 – 5; 1976 – 7; 1977 – 12 and 1978 (first quarter) – 4. Data collected for the period from 1985 to 1995 reveal that out of 178 rhinos killed by tigers in the park, 149 (83.7%) were calves with an average calf-mortality of 14.9 per year"

@Sully, it is important to also add the number of tigers and rhinos in the park at that time for a comparative context. Rhinos numbered close to 450 in early 70s while tigers fluctuated between 40-60. The populations of both those animals has increased significantly since then with rhinos now number 2500+ and tigers at nearly 125.
