    Default "Kuntu" Tiger of Bandipur and its deformed front leg...........

    Kuntu Tiger of Bandipur has a deformity in its front left leg.This is most probably happened at birth rather than a result of a fight with anothter tiger.This information was given by the forest guide in the safari jeep.He also confirmed that this deformity is not a constraint for Kuntu to hunt down prey......

    The deformity looks like wound. Good to know he is not restricted by it. Nicely captured. Thanks for sharing.

    It seems to me like a burn injury suffered while it was a cub. The natural developmental process must have, slowly but surely, taken care of its injury to make it into a strong adult. It may just be one of the possibilities...

    Thanks for your valuable view on this Saktiji.The forest guard told me it was not out of fight.But what you are saying is probably what happened.

    Regards
