Size doesn’t matter; all that matters is a perfect timing, for a perfect catch!
It was late evening when we had an enthralling experience with the tigers. The tigers had come to the water and relaxed as they sat and cooled themselves down. They were hungry and looking for an opportunity to hunt.
The sub adults got into a little action with their play fights. The saw an Indian Gaur approach the waterbody all alone and stalked the Gaur. They weren’t confident enough of hunting the Gaur as they hid flat on the ground and waited for a long time.
The mother observed these two sub adults stalking and joined the hunting game. She too stalked; as they all were at a distance and finally got closer to the Gaur. The wind was against the tigers and didn’t give much clue of their approach.
What happened next is in the video!
