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.

The article is 2months before T12 got sent to Sariska. 

The tiger it mentions was 220kg-T10 (not in image) & said his weight fell below 180kg during the relocation but now can be as high as 250kg.

I thought same might have been with T12 when he was weight 170kg, so i shared it as a reference. 

Quote:My point wasn’t that ranthambhore has small Tigers, my point was that their tigers seem to be a bit more lean overall comparatively. That doesn’t mean that all of their tigers are smaller or larger in frame, they have a wide range like anywhere else.

Agreed. Also, weight isn't static...Between young-old-summer-winter-injury-recovery, a single tiger's weight probably fluctuates 50lbs. I doubt we can put a number on each tiger so easily.
There's an older discussion on this topic with eye witness accounts, you'd probably be interested in it.


It's on the "B2 and other Tigers" Thread

This cage-way could also work. Although the size of these isn't standardised, they don't vary much either... somewhat this size.
