    Thoughtful pose. She might be thinking what went wrong? A young tigress in her prime. Loved the details on the coat. Thanks for sharing.

    Very interesting expression on the TIger captured very well here....Tigers probably are successful only 30% of the time in hunting down a prey.Lions also similar I think.Probably the highest hunting success rate is with the wild dogs!

    Expression brilliantly captured.Thanks for sharing. SaktiWild

    Sankar Bhai,
    Tiger's success rate may be 1:10 to 1:20 depending upon terrain, weather, prey species, predator's fitness and age.
    A pack of wild dogs has better success rate, experts agree.

    Kind regards,
    Sakti

    It is very difficult to ascribe a hunting success rate for tigers as they are difficult to sight and conditions, terrain, presence of other animals that sound an alarm and also wind vary. Tiger for its part doesn't rush and charge at its prey. Too often tiger tries to move close to its prey and when it realizes that the approach is not ideal tries to take another approach. However, if the terrain, wind, undergrowth etc is not favourable then it abandons the hunt. It doesn't charge just for the sake of it. So calculating success rate is tough. If you count all the incidents of tiger starting some form of stalking its prey then the chance of success can be lower than 2 digits ie. not even 10 out of 100.
