Machli (T-16) – An Uncontested Star of Ranthambore, Loses her one Eye in a Fight

Machli, which is the senior most tigresses in Ranthambore – may have lost her one eye in a fight with another super star of the jungle. Though it is yet to be confirmed by the officials but this incident has raised big concerned among the wildlife fraternity. With her growing age she is getting weaker and weaker so, she has decided to leave her own territory and shifted herself to Amba Ghati that is known as comfort and safe zone for old tigers and tigresses.

As per the officials Machli is the most photographed tigress in the world and is now more than 17 years old which is 3-4 years above than the normal age of a tiger. Now she is avoiding herself entering into the core area just to escape any conflict with young and strong cats. An officer quoted that, she might have fought with Sultan (T-72) – born to the tigress Noor who is looking for his own territory. Minor injuries on her legs have been found. Her red and swollen eyes give strength to suspects that she has lost one of her eyes while fighting with Sultan.

The officer of the forest department further quoted that the news of fight is yet to be endorsed. And if that actually has taken place, then most probably Machli have been attacked by the Sultan. Knowing the fact that she is in her last days and this brutal fight between both the tigresses might have worsened her condition.

Machli does not need any more introduction as she is prized tigress of the Ranthambore National P ark. A number of short films and documentaries film have been made on her complex behavior. She has been awarded with TOFT Lifetime Achievement Award for her immense contribution to the nation’s effort of conserving tigers and Rajasthan economy. Due to popularity of Machli in national and international fronts the economy of Rajasthan raised by $10 million as per the reports suggested by TOFT. Postal cover was issued on her last September. Hats off to the proud mother of seven litters and giving such an incredible contribution to the increasing number of tigers in the country. Though, she has become old but her legendry contest with 14 foot crocodile will be remembered on every occasion. She has been queen of jungles and will always remain so.
