A website that has different tales of tigers

Bandhavgarh (MP), Jan 28 (PTI) Bamera Male is bold, huge and handsome while Chorbehra is beautiful but cannot run due to an injured limb.

These are not characteristics of some youngsters but that of tigers lodged in the Bandhavgarh National Park in Umaria district.

The traits of the tigers in the park have been uploaded on the website www.landofthewild.com, which has been created by Sachin Rai, a wildlife photographer. The website traces the family tree of tigers, describes their traits and has stories associated with them.

"Wildlife photography is a passion for me," Rai told PTI, when asked about the website and his hobby.

"I used to visit Bandhavgarh at least three times a year and spend a fortnight each in the park to capture images and gather information about the tigers," the award-winning lensman said.

The tigers in the family tree are identified with their names like B2, Bokha, Bamera Male, Kallu, Chakradhara, Jhujhura, Chorbehra, Mahaman, Banbehi and Mirchaini.

Referring to B2, the website says, "A legend on his own, this tiger is probably the most photographed wild tiger in the world. Ruling more than half of the tourism area for almost eight years now, he has fathered lots of cubs who have been instrumental in shaping the future of Bandhavgarh."

"B2 has fathered Jhujura, one of the most bold and successful mothers. She had raised two healthy litters and was taking care of her third one which comprised three cubs when she was run over by a Forest Department vehicle on May 19, 2010," it claimed.

The State CID is probing the incident. .
