A Tiger Cub:
Still making new Tigers in India!
Many reports suggest that the tiger is doomed, let's hope they are wrong! There are many wild tigers still in India, and I sure hope the procreation continues. While we were there for 2 weeks, we heard of sightings with mating going on, so our return tour in April maybe have some new life for us to photograph.
This cub, and it's sibling were well protected by their mother hiding in the deep grass to stay out of sight, and to stay cool. We did watch the mother trek away from the cubs to hunt, luckily I was able to catch this shot of her.
The other cub stayed in the tall grass out of view, but it was nice to see and know that the family was intact, and looking forward to populating Ranthambhore NP for as long as possible.
Please do your best to help anti-poaching efforts in India. Our safaris in this park support tiger preservation.. as they are not cheap!
