Bengal Tiger with Kill. We were very fortunate in Ranthambore NP to not just see tigers, but to see tigers with kills, tigers moving kills, and tigers stalking (imagine a 300 kg house cat). This one is resting next to its kill allowing us to drive quite close. It completely ignored us, but the guides said that had we been on foot it would never have allowed us to get that close.

  1. If I see the hunting skill and damage our tiny 5kg cat can do, imagine the power of a 300 kg cat! Posted 2 months ago

The Bengal tiger is the most numerous tiger subspecies. Its populations have been estimated at 1,706–1,909 in India, 440 in Bangladesh, 163–253 in Nepal and 67–81 in Bhutan.
Since 2010, it has been classified as an endangered species by the IUCN. The total population is estimated at fewer than 2,500 individuals with a decreasing trend, and none of the ''Tiger Conservation Landscapes'' within the Bengal tiger's range is large enough to support an effective population size of 250 adult.. more
