The story of Tiger T 91 in Ranthambore
Tiger T-91 aka Mirza is the cub of T30 aka Husn-Ara of Ranthambore. Tiger T-91 was born in the fourth litter of T-30. Tiger T 91 was born in Thumka terrain of the Khandar range in the fourth litter of T30 from metering with T-3 “Bahadur”. Its territory was the Gilai Sagar and JelKhoah of Khandar . On June 3, 2016 it was named by the Ranthambore Forest Department and named as T 91. In local people of the area, it is famous as Mirza. This tiger has also been with Tigress T84 “Arrowhead” in Zone 3 of Ranthambore. After the struggle of other tigers, it was living in Ramgarh sanctuary of Bundi district for almost five months.
After being cubs of Tigress T 83 aka Lightning, the Forest Department is considering leaving the Tigress T-84 aka Arrowhead in Mukundra. The main reason for this is that this Tigress Arrowhead T84 has already lived with T-91 “Mirza”. In such a situation, there will be no problem for both of them to stay in the new place. At the same time, soon there will be increase of tiger populations in Mukundra hills Tiger Reserve.
