Tiger cubs poncing at each other MAHARASHTRA INDIA HILARIOUS images of two tiger cubs boxing each other show that even among siblings, sometimes there is no love lost.
The cubs were seen being playful and poncing on each other until they eventually settled down once their mother, who was watching from a distance, came and broke them apart.
These beautiful images were clicked by wildlife photographer Prateek Shroff using a Canon R3, RF 400mm lens in Tadoba National Park, also known as Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve, India.
He was less than 100 meters away when he took these pictures.
“I waited many years to capture something as spectacular as two siblings fighting in this manner,” said Prateek.
“This required a lot of patience to be able to get them in the frame, considering they are constantly moving and hiding behind bushes and foliage.
“Every moment was a sight to behold, and I could not take my eyes, or lens, off of these majestic creatures.”
Tadoba National Park is one of India's 47 project tiger reserves existing in India. Created in 1955, the total area of the tiger reserve, which includes the area of the park, is 1,727 Sq.km.
“Capturing the sub-adult cubs’ behaviour around the mother and also seeing how the sister-brother duo were interacting with each other brought me a lot of joy,” he added.
