    This is a female Royal Bengal Tiger. They are the top predators around here as are Grizzly's and Polar Bears in their respective environment. They can take down a fully grown Gaur weighing a whooping 2 tons. Gaurs don't go down easy and can put up a fierce fight. Kill rate is one in ten hunts. My success rate of sighting this magnificent animal was one in four safaris.

    Females tip the scale at 350 lbs while the males at 450 ibs. Historically the Siberian or Amur tigers were much larger than the Bengal ones but due to shrinking supply of prey in the Siberian far east, the reverse is currently true.
