Not a real big cat in size but one in spirit and hunting skills. This shy predator was seen hunting birds one cold January morning in Ranthambhore. An extremely lucky sighting as we were looking for tiger pugs.
T-17 was roaring one evening looking for her mate T28 - smelling the scent marks and doing the flehmen response once she had a whiff of her playmate. She's a beauty and currently (in 2012) one of the most friendly tigers of the park
T-17 again in her full glory !
