The clash between tigers T57 and T58 in Zone 6 of Ranthambore
Fight between Tiger T57 and T58 in Ranthambore National Park
A case of conflict between two tigers has once again come to light in Ranthambore. However, this time the conflict between the tigers has not happened due to territory. This time due to tigress T 39 Noor, there is a conflict between two tigers. The two brothers became enemies of each other's lives for tigress Noor.
Forest officials said that on Tuesday, 15 October 2019, there was a clash between two tigers T57 and T58 for tigress T 39 Noor in Kundal area of Zone 6 of Ranthambhore National Park. Its photos were captured in the photo trap camera. Both tigers have suffered minor injuries in the clash. Trekking of both tigers is being done by the forest department.
It is believed that both the tigers were injured and then retreated in this straight fight that lasted for a long time. In such a situation, this battle cannot be considered finished. Male tigers have come face to face in Ranthambore many times over territories and tigress, in which many tigers have been killed.
On Tuesday, this clash between two tigers took place on the Tiraha near the streamlet of Soleshwar Mahadev. This area comes in Zone 6 of Ranthambore National Park, which is now also considered the best tiger safari zone in the Ranthambore National Park. This forest area is ruled by Tiger T 57. The area of Tiger T58 is zones 7 and 8 of Ranthambore. But this tiger T58 has entered the area of T57, crossing the area of tiger T34 Kumbha. After this both of them clashed.
Tigress Noor T 39 reached Zone 1 with the third tiger Kumbha T34 due to the collision of two tigers.
The tigress T-39 Noor was seen lying comfortably with the T-57 before the battle of the two tigers. In Ranthambore, there was a fight between two tigers on Tuesday and both were also hurt, but according to eyewitnesses, the tigress T-39 Noor was also present at the time when the fight took place there. Seeing the two tigers fighting, the tigress T 39 escaped from there and reached another area. In the evening, the tigress left both tigers and moved to Zone 1 of Ranthambore, where she was spotted with the third tiger T-34.
According to the information received from the guides and drivers present there during the tiger fight in the morning, tiger T-57 and tigress T-39 Noor were mating near Soleshwar Nalla. They were together for the last five days. Although, the tigress Noor T39 mainly roamed in Zone 1 of Ranthambore, but now the tigress is roaming with the T34. In the afternoon, many tourists saw their activities.
Tigress Noor T39 also lived with T24 Ustad
Previously, tigress Noor T39 roamed with Ranthambore's famous tiger T24 aka Ustad in Zone 2 of Ranthambore. In May 2015, Tiger T24 Ustad was shifted from Ranthambhore to Sajjangarh Biological Park in Udaipur. After this, tigress Noor got a new partner in the form of Tiger T57.
Tigress Noor T39 was seen with Tiger T57
According to the forest department, the tigress T39 Noor was spotted in Zone 6 along with tiger T57 for several days. The Tiger T57 was also seen mating with Noor in the past.
Both tigers are cubs of tigress T26
The two tigers that have struggled due to tigress Noor are both real brothers. They are cubs of tigress T 26 aka Sharmili. Both of them are about four years old. Their variance area resides in zones one, two and six. For several days, the movement of both tigers has been in Zone 6 of Ranthambore.
The tigress T26 gave birth to three cubs simultaneously. They were named T56, T57 and T58. Out of these, tiger T56 migrated from here and went towards Madhya Pradesh. The rest of the two tigers had gained dominance in different areas. Forest officer told that the area of both tigers is very different. In general they do not visit each other's territory. But this collision occurred due to infiltration into each other's territory.
The conflict also happened earlier
This is not the first time that two tigers have clashed for tigress Noor. Earlier, there was a clash between tigers T34 Kumbha and T57 for tigress T 39 Noor on the border of zone one and four. Tiger T34 Kumbha was injured in this conflict.
According to the new report, 62 tigers and tigresses in Ranthambore, an area of 1700 square kilometers
A male tiger area is believed to be around 70–80 square kilometers. This male tiger area can accommodate 2–3 tigresses. According to the report, out of 1700 sq km area in Ranthambore, about 650 sq km area is considered suitable for tigers. Overall, the area is small in terms of tiger population in Ranthambore. Conflict between tigers is a natural thing due to the increasing tiger population in Ranthambore. The young male tigers enter the territory of another tigers in search of territory, causing conflict among them.
