    Default "Kuntu" Tiger from Bandipur......

    My first wild tiger photo was taken at Bandipur earlier this month.The honour goes to Mr.Kuntu who has a genetic disfiguration to its left front leg.But it is not an obstruction for hunting down prey......He was resting in a water hole when we saw him and cooled off for more than 10 minutes....

    Kuntu? ha ha ha. It would be interesting to read the tiger's mind. Wonder what names the tiger would have given to the tourists. I am not sure it would be something pleasant.
