Poor guys, they seem to have got some bug or something. It has been a sad week with 5 big cats dying in the past week at Bangalore’s Bannerghatta National Park or Biological Park. Two of them were old Bengal tigers and a White Tiger who, officials say, has died of an almost 3 months battle with kidney disease. And another, a cub which probably died of salmonella and E.coli. Really really sad.
Anyway, I feel someone has supplied real bad chicken meat there. Hmm…
Some of my old friends (who I hope are still running around):
He was quite majestic looking and not at all bothered about people around.
This guy was a bit uneasy around us. He was lying under the shades when we came and proceeded to get into the man made pool for a quick dip.
This guy was totally cool. All pictures were taken this April – on the 24th to be precise.
Some other pictures I liked:
One of the truly free guys. He was on the rampage and fighting turf wars all around us on the footpaths and on the trees.
Mother and two baby monkeys (Rhesus monkeys) watching out for the big guy in the previous picture.
And two butterflies ‘going at it’ at the butterfly park adjacent to BBP .
Please do check out my flickr set too.
