At the heart of a healthy Tiger population are breeding Tigresses. This beautiful Tigress from the Bishanpura area of Mukki is a mother of three 10-month old Cubs now. She is quite big in size and this is her fourth known litter. We saw her from elephant-back this morning and she sat in the bush staring and occasionally growling at us. Notice her missing lower canine. She is indeed a very impressive looking animal and i was happy i went on elephant-back to have her 'darshan', which i usually avoid. There was a dead Langur not very far from her, totally intact. Maybe she hunted it for her Cubs?
