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.

No meal is too small. This subadult from Sundarbans has a ganges softshell turtle on it’s menu.

Hey @Rage2277, it can’t be a Ranthambore tiger as Gangetic Softshell turtle are found nowhere near Ranthambore. They are only found in Ganges and Mahanadi river systems in India and Indus in Pakistan.

Tiger with a soft shell turtle kill
The young tiger made a soft shell turtle kill and sat on it for some time. As the tiger saw a crocodile lurking in the water, the tiger picked up the kill and walked into the bushes to feast and retire for the day. The last possible shot on the evening safari. Ranthambore tiger reserve, Ranganathan, India."
