 It is being told that the area of the Taleda range has long been a terrain of tiger T33 [Hammir]. Suddenly another tiger T 75 came there and turned away T 33 from there. After that, T-33 tried to transform his kingdom into Khandar area. Even here, there was already the reign of Male Tiger T-66 and as a result there was a fight between the both tigers.

T 33 a.k.a Hammir was the first litter of T 30 a.k.a Husnara (better known as Mango female) that was born in 2005. He lived in the Chiroli range of the park. Old male tigers generally lose their territory for the young and dominate male. This male tiger shared his territory with two females including T-9 and T-11. He was last sighted by tourist in winter season 2013. Male tiger T 66 is the 1st litter of T 43 a.k.a Surjan [brother of T 42 Fateh] and third litter to T 13 a.k.a Old Sultanpur female.
Significantly, due to the increasing number of tigers and lack of locality in Ranthambore, there is a situation of conflict between the tigers. Due to the large number of young tigers in the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, the elderly Tiger T-33 had to struggle more for its territory.
May his soul Rest in Peace. Ranthambhore shall always be thankful for your contribution to the park.
