We have been asked by people, Aren't we scared? Does the tiger not attack? The answer is, if you get into their comfort zone, they do give you warnings.... like this huge male called t57, most dominant and beautiful one around.. .gave a huge snarl when the gypsy in front of us in the frame, raced ahead... you need to maintain your cool and respect the animal. and belive me its mutual. You respect them and they respect you back....enjoy the moment.

NTCA's green signal to relocate 2 tigresses to Mukundara,
June 26, 2018 

2 mates set to join the lone MT1 in Mukundara Hills Tiger Reserve

Kota: The NTCA has approved on Monday evening to send two tigresses in the Mukundara hills tiger reserve Kota district from Ranthambore. With this, the ongoing legal dispute between the state government and the NTCA ended.

The Rajasthan Forest Department had earlier released male tiger from T-91 (renamed MT-1) from Ranthambore's buffer into the Darah Zone instead of the planned Seljar Zone, without notifying the governing body National Tiger Conservation Authority or NTCA. The tussel went to Rajasthan High Court & a meeting of the two bodies was ordered.

The meeting was held in New Delhi on Monday, Chief Wild Life Warden G.V.Ready, Field Director of Mukundara Hills Tiger Reserve, Conservator of Forest Ghanshyam Sharma and Deputy Conservator of Forests T. Mohan Raj took part in the meeting. At the meeting Mukundara hills tiger reserve kota was discussed in the dispute over the shift of tiger. Reddy told NTCA that there was a problem in shifting the tiger to the Seljar area. The villagers were also opposing and were not ready to leave the jungle. In such a situation, they had to make plans to release the tigers in Dara region for now. Where the enclosures were made for the safety of the tiger. The NTCA agreed and allowed the release of two more tigers in the tiger reserve.

Now selection of tigers

Th work on will be initiated for selecting the females now. According to Chief Wild Life Warden Rajasthan G.V.Reddy, it has not yet been decided that which tigresses will be released in the Mukunda Hills, it is important that the shifting of tigers has gotten approval.

This adventurer left Ranhambore as T-7 and traveled north towards dense human settlements through fields & forests , only to end up in the tiny Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary. From there he was captured & shifted to Sariska as ST-6 where he now rules.

Rajasthan forest department identifies two Ranthambore tigresses for Mukundara Hills.


*This image is copyright of its original author

One among the two tigresses identified for relocation, T-99, is the daughter of the famous Gudda tigress or T-60. Gudda is a range of Ranthambore that falls under Zone 2.

T-99 was among the three cubs born to T-60 nearly three years ago. The other two cubs were male. Mohan Singh, a forest guard at the Ranthambore tiger reserve, told Firstpost that the other two cubs didn’t let T-99 eat the prey killed by their mother.

So, the baby girl T-99 left her mother at an early age and made Zone 10 of Ranthambore her new home, which was already a territory of T-79 and T-13, two bigger cats.
One of the reasons for the forest department to move T-99 to the Mukundra reserve is the territorial fight that could have erupted between T-99 and the other two tigers who were already comfortably settled in that zone.

The other tigress to be shifted to Mukundra, T-102, is the granddaughter of the famous Sundari or T-17 Tigress of Ranthambore. Presently, she is living in Bakola range that is, Zone 5 of Ranthambore. Both the tigresses are young and healthy.

To accompany the two females, T-99 and T-102, a male tiger T-91 was also relocated to Mukundra tiger reserve in April this year. He was radio-collared before being released into the Darrah range of Mukundra tiger reserve.
Singh, who helped in the relocation process, stayed in Mukundara with T-91 for 17 days to ensure that he is comfortable in his new home. The forest guard said, "It was not very difficult for T-91 to accept his new home as Mukundra and Ranthambore have a very similar terrain."

Mukundara has a CTR (Critical Tiger Habitat) area of 700 square kilometres -- some 100 square kilometres more than Ranthambore.

Tiger story - 30 


The Tiger & the Porcupine

In January 2018, I got a call from a Village Wildlife Volunteer who asked me,' Sir, do Tigers not kill porcupines?'. I told him that of course they do & eat them too. He then sent me a very unusual camera trap picture which showed a porcupine walking or rather 'dancing' right in front of the Tiger, T-91, while the Tiger looked on in indifference. 

I mumbled to myself, ' porcupines are a weak spot for T91'. This image was taken by camera trap when T-91 was straying away from Ranthambhore, following which the Forest Dept. relocated him to the Mukundhara Tiger Reserve in Kota. When he was still in Ranthambhore, the poor guy tried to hunt a porcupine only to be impaled by several quills. The quills were so deeply entrenched that he had to be tranquilised & treated. The veterinarian told me that they needed pliers to remove the quills. There have been many cases in history when a Tiger has either succumbed to porcupine quills or worse, turned to man-eating afterward. This Tiger was lucky that he was treated. He seemed to have learnt the lesson of a lifetime after his deadly brush with the porcupine.
