    Default Tiger: Time to chill

    This is one from my archives from Bandhavgarh.

    Tiger needs to cool down in hot summers. Due to such behaviour experts suggest that tiger came to India crossing the colder mountain passes. Despite colonizing tiger has never developed liking to heat. Unlike we humans tiger doesn't have sweat glands in the body (they have it in paw), so it can't cool down like us. With destruction of forests water holes are drying up these days putting the tiger and other wildlife in steep trouble.
