Thanks to Project Tiger, this is the closest thing you can legally find these days to a carpet sporting a tiger’s head. A real live #bengaltiger , sprawled on the forest floor, relaxed and unthreatened. A glance at her belly gives evidence of more tigers around the corner. All in all, it’s a good world here in this tiny patch of forest in the centre of one of the most densely populated countries on the planet. A good, solid reason to hope that one day all animals will live freely and with our regard for their well-being.
P.S. The joy of seeing this tiger bond with her teeny-tinies was soon replaced by the dejecting news that the cubs had been the victims of territorial disputes amongst multiple males staking claim to this animal’s territory. However, it seems that life has inevitably come full circle - rumour has it she is now mother to another bundle of furry cubs, with whom I very much look forward to making acquaintance. :) #naturelovers #natgeowildlife #wildlifephotos #wildlifephotography #indianafricanwildlife #wildplanetphotomag #wildlife #bigcat #indianwildlifeofficial #tigers #wildlifeperfection #natureinfocus #wildlifeplanet #bigcats
