The challenger and defender
The tigress had made a kill and was found near this waterhole in every safari we had been. She was resting and suddenly we could see her getting alert. She slowly got up from the water hole and started moving towards the bushes and paused mid way and started looking towards a bush. We thought that there might be another tiger approaching the water hole which had made her alert. After few minutes we could see a sloth bear appear from the bushes and started to charge the tigress. For our surprise, the tigress did not fight back but ran away from the water hole!!
Nature never fails to surprise us!
