Ookhan was one among the 4 cubs born to Tara and Yeda anna from Tadoba NP.
Yeda anna was the dominant male tiger of Moharli range of Tadoba (2010 - 2011), but later Yeda anna was chased off from his territory by the Mighty Waghdoh.
So the enitre family (Yeda anna, Tara and the 4 cubs) moved out and found refuge at cheezghat and vasanth mandhara area in Tadoba Range.
During this time Tara had a conflict with Devdoh female which ended up in a suspicious death of one of Tara's male cub named Circuit.
Finally Tara moved away from this territory to Kolara gate area which is in the other end of the park.
At the end two cubs Ookhan and Choti Tara were left with their father Yeda anna. Yeda anna took care of the cubs, fed them and protected them especially from the 4 dominant males in the surrounding area.
Ookhan the male cub disappeared in the early 2012 and was seen again in the early 2013.

This is a video of Yeda anna, Ookhan and Choti Tara were all staying together and feeding on a Sambar kill.
You can see the subadults (Ookhan and choti tara) feeding and then later Yeda anna taking the carcass.
The important thing in this video is eventhough Ookhan was a young subadult male tiger he just dwarfed his father Yeda anna by a big margin.
Remember Yeda anna was a big male tiger.
Just look at the size of young Ookhan compared to Yeda anna.

That video was a sensation.
The first ever footage showing from start to end of a tiger killing a gaur.
This clearly shows the massive advantage of higher biteforce, longer canines and massive forequarter when taking down large preys single handedly.
The kill was swift, quick and clean.

Regarding Yeda anna it was said to be a big tiger but not as huge as Waghdoh.
I guess Roflcopter once said that Yeda anna was a large specimen (I hope he can clarify it when his back).

Here is a pic of Ookhan from the same video for clearer view

Nice pics of Yeda anna. It does look like he made the smart decision by leaving waghdoh and the territory. I have heard that he was back and possibly looking to reignite his rivalry with Waghdoh. Would need copters or rage to clarify.
Or prathap if he joined here.

 Trouble for rhino from poacher and Bengal tiger   

The rhino is being hounded by predators, and not only of the two-legged kind.   

Royal Bengal tigers, which usually prey on baby rhinos, have begun killing adult ones in Kaziranga National Park since the last fortnight.   

Alarmed by this development, a team of experts from the Wildlife Institute of India (WII), Dehradun, will arrive at the national park tomorrow on a weeklong visit to survey the “phenomenon”.   

Authorities at Kaziranga National Park have also informed the chief conservator of forests of the new trend.  

Tigers killed 20 rhinos at Kaziranga last year, while this year eight rhinos have fallen prey to the big cats.   

“The worrying part is that tigers have started killing full grown rhinos. Earlier it was only the calves the tigers used to attack but now the full grown rhinos are being targeted,” said Bankim Sharma, the divisional forest official of the park.   

Last evening, three tigers, probably a mother and her two grown calves, attacked an adult rhino near the East Haldhibari anti-poaching camp in the Kohora range of the park.  “It must have taken several hours for the tigers to nail the rhino. The entire area looked like a war zone with crushed grass and plants. The rhino had probably given up when it got stuck in the mud in a nearby water body,” the forest official said.   

Forest officials later retrieved the rhino’s horn.   

On February 26, a pregnant rhino was killed by tigers at Rutikhowa beel under Bagori range.  Gunin Saikia, another forest at Kaziranga, said there have been no instances of tigers attacking full grown rhinos till now.  Saikia said female rhinos generally venture out of the park along with their calves at night to escape from tiger attacks, since rhino calves are easy prey for tigers.  “But tigers always keep away from full grown rhinos,” he said.   

The divisional forest official said male rhinos usually stay alone and tigers are finding it easier to prey on them than buffaloes, which stay in large groups.   

There has been an increase in tiger population in the park, which could be another reason for the attacks on rhinos, he said.   

According to the last census conducted in 2000, 86 rhinos were found in Kaziranga.  “There is no doubt that the figure has gone up since then,” the divisional forest official said.

Female rhino killed by tiger in Kaziranga  


Saturday, January 02, 2010 STAFF WRITER 22:10 HRS IST  Golaghat (Assam), Jan 2 (PTI) A female rhino was mauled to death by a tiger at Kaziranga National Park in Assam today, forest officials said.   The ageing rhino was attacked by the big cat near the Bagori range of the world heritage site, they said.   Though Five veterinary doctors rushed to treat the herbivore, but it succumbed to injuries because of low resistance power due to its old age, the officials said.
