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.

Wild carnivores and humans compared

Every now and then, a photograph of a wild carnivore and a human is published. Most are posted in threads about the animal featured in the photograph, but my feeling is they don't belong there. For this reason, this thread was created. I propose to post photographs of wild carnivores and humans in this thread.

The thread Apollo started ('Vintage') some time ago in another section is quite similar, but most of the animals over there were photographed after they were shot. The proposal is to post live animals in this thread. All wild carnivores go, but we'd like to see those alive and well when possible.

No captive animals, no circus animals and no trophy animals, ok?

PC,

No trophy animals and no circus animals. Alive and wild predators only, if you please. The first tiger you posted is ok and so is Raja. The others were shot by hunters and should go to the 'Vintage' thread of Apollo. Ok?

All clear. The reason is there are plenty of photographs of trophy animals and hunters. We want to see living animals and proud people surrounding them. Proud to have assisted in some way to keep them alive. Different from those who besieged them. You can see it.

Ranthambore male tigers seem to be large animals. A bit longer than those in Central India, but as robust.

They are quoted by many eye witnesses as being very large animals. T24 was weighed when he was 3.5 and I believe he was 220kg and Jhumroo was quoted at 280kg but I don't know if he was weighed or not. Its probably a estimation. But T42 and T28 are said to the be the largest in Ranth. But Anjan Lal who I just spoke with about Ngorongo lions and I posted it in the Ngorongo Lion thread said Todaba has the largest tigers he has seen. Everybody seems to think Waghdoh is the king of all outside of Kaziranga and Corbett, but to few people go there, I've only spoke with Kanwar and he specifically mentions their massive size. Kahna is said to be another breeding ground for monster tigers from people I have spoken with who have been there.
If Im ranking from the people I have spoken with
-Kaziranga/Terai Arc
-Corbett
-Tadoba/Kahna Tie
-Ranth a very close contender to Tadoba and Kahna
-Bandhavargh
-Bandipur
(Sorry to derail) Isn't my intention, just wanted to give my 2 cents about what you said.

Also just to take note, Banda was grandfather of Umarpani male and Umarpani male is every bit as big as his grandpa.

A lost Pattewala. Neither Kisli Pattewala nor Banda or link 7's Pattewala. A mukki male. Maybe Minkur's cub from her 2004 litter - with Munna & Kisli Pattewala? This very big male tiger was never seen again after this date (Dec 2007). Apparently despite his collar no one ever knew what happened to him. Talk about the usefulness of collar. Does anyone recognize him? © Le Minh #Kanha
