Male tiger T-113 is the son of tigress Krishna
According to the forest department, Tiger T-113 is the son of tigress Krishna aka T 19. The age of Tiger T-113 is about 5 years. This is the cub of Krishna's third litter. It also has a brother T-112 and sister T-111. At present, the movement of T-113 was in the non-tourist area of Ranthambore and sometimes came in the tourist area.
At this time this tiger was living with two tigresses T-125 and T-103. Some time ago, two cubs were born from the pair of tigress T-103 and Tiger T 113, which could not live long.
Male tiger T-112 will get a new place
With the shifting of male tiger T-113 to Sariska, tiger T112 will get the area in the forest. Earlier the tiger T 112 was wandering around the periphery of Ranthambore. Due to the pressure of Tiger T-113, T-112 could not find a place in the jungle.
With the shifting of this tiger, it is now being speculated that T-112 will get this area along with both the tigresses. In such a situation, where T-112 will go to the safe forest area, the fear of the people of the villages located on the periphery will also be less.
