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.

Tiger Predation

Absolutely, even the fact that “Tigers are hardly social with their cubs” was nothing but BS. almost all the dominant males i have heard or read about were phenomenal fathers. from Bamera, B2, Umarpani, Wagdoh, Munna, Shivaji, Raja, Basavanakatte, Matkasur, Jai, katezari, Gabbar, Kankajhari, Namdev, Kali, T25, T57 and the list goes on. male tigers are often misunderstood in general, the more you follow them. you realize they aren’t just some cold blooded forest dwellers, each and every tiger balances out quality time with their families. It’s sort of like humans. we find variety in every individual. fascinating creatures that’s for sure.

I'd searched information about their fish eating habits. So you have any?

And "Javan" rhinos are better be called Lesser One-horned Rhinos. May be restricted to Java today but there was a time when they are spread all over Indochina right upto the Gangetic delta.

@Rishi, I found the study for you. Also talks about the saltwater crocs of Sunderbans. Apparently, the Sunderbans tiger also raid beehives!!! That is an amazing level of adaptation. Plus, they also eat cobras, king cobras and monitor lizards.

Oh, the beehive thing is official?.. I'd heard the claim from locals but didn't take it too seriously.

Scene from Kanha where a tiger is resting after taking down his meal, a juvenile Gaur. The puncture wounds tell their own story. If anyone can recognize the tiger, that would be great:





Apologies if someone has posted this video earlier.

That's Dhanangaon male,from back when he still lived around Kisli. Judging from the length of the horns of the dead animal, it is more likely to have been a female then a juvenile.
