A Bengal Tiger's Motherly Love

Bengal tigers living in the forests of India are rarely seen, but we succeeded in filming a female tiger called Machali raising her cubs. Although known for their fierce nature, we witnessed an incredible affection of the mother tiger for her cubs. We also found a strict hierarchy exists among the little ones as their strategy to survive. It is said that male tigers take no part in the rearing of the cubs and will even occasionally kill them. However, for the first time, the camera has captured an endearing scene of a father tiger interacting with his offspring.
