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.

Remember , Riddhi is the daughter of Arrowhead , Granddaughter of Krishna & Great granddaughter of the famous tigress MACHALI Arrowhead's daughter Riddhi was completely hidden in the grass. Suddenly a wild boar came there. Riddhi attacked the wild boar. There were lots of crocodiles around the water's edge. Just then, a crocodile swiftly approached the wild boar and tried to free him from the tiger. But Tiger did not release the wild boar! Crocodiles attacked the tiger's back legs more than 2 times. Then tried to fight with the crocodile. The crocodile accepted its defeat and came back into the water. Riddhi dragged the wild boar inside the grass.

That description is odd. Here is a better video of the same case. Tiger was fighting to kill the wild boar when crocodile came there and tried to bite the tiger (once, not "more than 2 times") which jumped over the wild boar to avoid the bite and then simply dragged wild boar further away. Tiger didn´t try to fight with crocodile, it just moved further to avoid being disturbed by it again. And crocodile obviously decided not to follow more then. Looks like "narrator" wanted to put some more dramatic elements there than there were in reality. (Unless there is more footage and something happened before or after this footage but it really doesn´t look like it. One crocodile tried to get something and tiger made fast evasive moves.)

Still respect for this tiger, it didn´t let prey to run away even under pressure. Impressive alone without invented extra dramatization.

Ah, a good example of persistence-hunting in tigers... They do this a lot actually especially with bigger prey. Injure & follow & repeat.
