Tiger Cubs bring Joy to Ranthambore

Standard

Close on the heels of the birth of some new cubs at the Ranthambore tiger reserve in the recent past, there are some more good news in store.

A trap camera caught three new born cubs recently at the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve. This has been possible due to creation of conductive habitat for tigers and conservation measures. The photo here shows the tigress T26 (Sharmelee) with her cub in the Mai Dang region which is her territory. The cub seems to be about three months old. This photograph was taken through a camera trap installed by the forest department. Though the photograph shows only one cub the evidence of more cubs is being verified through camera traps and pug marks.

Pug marks of a cub have also been seen with T11 (Chiroli tigress) in Chiroli area as well as a cub was seen with a tigress in Bakola area.

Seems the coming safari season has a lot of offer – more exciting pictures, frivolity of little cubs and some real action from the big cat family of the Jungle!!
