More man-animal conflict...  
Bad news for the tigers of Nagarhole it seems. Times of India had an article today (could someone give me an online link to that?) about a man-eater on prowl. Bad for people. Bad for tigers. Many are going to have sleepless nights and I am fairly sure that some tigers will be killed there to appease people. The question is how many? With poaching still rampant, this is not looking good for the great cats of India.

Anyway, here are some images from that forest.




Muggers are medium-sized crocodiles (average around 10-12 feet) and found all over India. They seem to be amazingly calm for their size but we all know how opportunistic crocodiles are...



Juvenile tusker on the banks of the Kabini. Just like human teenagers, these are very short-tempered and should be avoided. However, unlike human families these are mercilessly thrown out of their herds at this stage.



Edit: Thanks to fiery_fiona for the link.

Yes, I know I should be looking at the animals, but the horizontal bands of colour in the croc pic (croc pic..that's poetry) with the counterpoint of the flying bird, and the tones of the tusker pic are...so beautiful....but I suppose more competent people than I would have told you that!
