Life journey of this two and a half year old tiger T 109 Veeru
Tiger T-109 was born about 40 months or two and a half years ago. It was born by tigress T-8 at a place called Chidi Kho of Zone 7 of Ranthambore wildlife Sanctuary. Its father is T-34 aka Kumbha. The tiger T 109 was known as Veeru in the jungle and another male tiger born with it, T 108, is known as Jai. For this reason, these two were known as Jai-Veeru pair. Later, Tiger T 109 moved from Chidi Kho area with his mother to the Kundal forest area of Zone 6. After being young here, both the brothers separated from the mother and wandered in search of a different area for themselves. As soon as he stepped on the threshold of youth, it started getting challenged from other young and ferocious tigers from all around and it could not stand anywhere within the forest.

This tiger is also much larger and bloodier than the two and a half year old T-109.
