June 2023 - Week 1 Roundup


 

Tiger

Sighted on: 3.June.2023



It has been some time since I went on a jungle safari. On a fine morning, we were in the hope of something exciting. There were 8 of us, all eager to spot some big game. Initially, we came across a few fresh paw prints, facing the opposite direction. Later on, we found some elephants with calves displaying interesting behaviour. All of a sudden, we received news of a tiger sighting in our zone, so we decided to head there. After some effort, we reached the location, but the tiger had just disappeared. "Never give up hope," I told the guests, sensing that the tiger had not gone far. A little while later, we came across a large herd of spotted deer showing signs of nervousness, attempting multiple unsuccessful entries into the bushes. My anticipation got some life a little later, as a herd of Sambar from the same area behaved similarly as the Chital (Spotted Dear), This confirmed my anticipation that the tiger was still in the area. Suddenly, a sub-adult chital entered the bushes and quickly retreated with alarm calls. The magnificent tiger made its appearance, and our driver, excitedly spotting it for the first time, moved the vehicle a little closer. Within seconds, the tiger revealed itself, marking its territory. Do you remember the initial paw prints we encountered? As the tiger growled twice, we realised that the cubs were nearby. Unfortunately, time constraints forced us to leave.

What an eventful day on safari!

Elephant

Sighted on: 4.June.2023



Though adult bull elephants usually live solitary lives, it is not uncommon to spot them in small groups of two or more. These coalitions are typically temporary and formed based on common interests, such as a grazing ground or a drinking water source. Currently, the receded water bed of Kabini presents a wonderful opportunity to observe such coalitions.

It is always an awe to see the Indian Gaur (Bos Gaurus) in the jungle, the formidable size of the bull is quite a sight. It is the largest and the tallest wild cattle in the world.
