A fearsome and charismatic predator, the tiger is one of the most beautiful animals in the wild. No wonder filmmakers and photographers flock to India's tiger reserves to capture images, make spectacular documentaries and videos for a lifetime.
The predator is surrounded by a mystical aura generated by folklore, shikar tales, and adventure stories. Fear throbs in every heart at the sight of the big cat, but surprisingly it is the most gentle creature on Earth. It kills only for food and keeps to its food chain in which man is not included. Occasional mean eating is an aberrant behavior with man-animal conflict the major culprit. Accidental man killing is often due to proximity and that is a defensive act.
