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.

"In the morning, we found a dead gaur eaten from behind. It was a very clear sign that a tiger had killed and eaten it. Our assumption was right. The big male was eating the kill that evening. Another surprise was waiting for us at a distance. The two sub-adults were sitting right next to each other. After a while, the mother also came there, the male allowed his partner and the sub-adults to eat from his kill, which was a very surprising moment for us!..."

"I have heard that sometimes when the mother dies, the male raises the cubs. But it was a happy moment to see that he still cared for the sub-adults even though the mother was around. He won our hearts with his behaviour. Over the next few days, we saw them sitting and resting until the kill was over."

Tiger predation on primates

Tigers, leopards - clouded & common, dholes and crocodiles are capable of killing orangutans. Record of adult male orangutan killed by a tiger

From Rijksen (1978) A field study on Sumatran orang utans (Pongo pygmaeus abelii Lesson 1827) : ecology, behaviour and conservation

"Of the predatory animals, found in Sumatra, only the tiger, the clouded leopard, (perhaps the leopard), the hunting dog (dhole) and the crocodile are capable of preying upon orangutans.
In 1975, a freshly killed, past prime adult male orang utan was found in the Gunung Leuser reserve (Van Strien, pers. comm., 1975) (fig. 59). The corpse had bruises and deeply penetrating scratches on the back and in the neck region and a large part of the abdomen and the legs had been eaten. Pug marks near the corpse indicated that a tiger had caught and killed the male. All that was left of the corpse after one month were scattered tufts of orang utan hair. 
In July 1974, a tiger broke into the night quarters of the juvenile rehabilitants and killed one male orang utan. The predator had made a considerable effort to get into the cage. Attempts to break through the wire mesh had failed (in the process the cat tore off two nails), but the tiger finally succeeded in breaking two of the boards of the sleeping-cage's floor. During the same period a tiger had tried to break into a small house in the village Balelutu, opposite the Ketambe area. Presumably this was the same animal."

Great account. Just shows how incredibly versatile tigers are at killing.
