Tensions Running High in the Jungles of India

Posted by on
Tension is running high in the jungles of India this week. Challengers to both tigers and tigresses in various tiger reserves have been adding conflict and intrigue to daily squabbles, and injuries are the inevitable result.

The Princess of the lakes, Satra, is limping badly in Ranthambore. Blue Eyes is hurt and rumor has it that Vijaya has a swollen leg in Bandhavgarh National Park. All this activity points to the testosterone-fueled blood that flows through wild tigers' veins as individuals mature and the young begin to dominate over the elders.

Tiger safaris are in full swing now during the summer in India. We are looking forward to hearing back from our travelers about their sightings. When I was in Bandhavgarh 4 years ago I saw B2 close up next to our vehicle. He was legendary as the dominant male in the park for many years:
"B2" was the dominant male of Bandhavgarh National Park. 
Before I returned in 2012 he had subsequently died in November 2011 after a territorial fight, but not before leaving a legacy of his formidable genes in his descendants you might see today on our Tigers and Travels of India.
