Tiger moving his dinner to a more private place Another action photo of the Ranthambore tigers, this time dragging its dinner carcass to a more secluded spot for a private meal. Astounding strength to be able to pick up a cow with your teeth and move it!

Tiger moving his dinner to a more private place

Another action photo of the Ranthambore tigers, this time dragging its dinner carcass to a more secluded spot for a private meal. Astounding strength to be able to pick up a cow with your teeth and move it!

  1. You got some awesome action/behavior shots from this trip, Barry! Posted 2 months ago
    1. Indeed, we were very lucky - but if you or anyone should read this who is going to Ranthambore, be sure to book your zones early. There are currently 10 zones you can visit. Any of them can have tigers or not and they don't publish statistics on where you are most likely to see one, but if you take more than 1-2 safaris (we took 6), then be sure to book different zones to increase your chances. We ended up seeing tigers on 5 of them - which wildly exceeded our expectations and even better was that the tigers were doing things, not just sitting there. 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
