While the first Tiger cub walked away from us, a third Tiger, the last of Noor’s cubs in Ranthambore made his appearance in a nonchalant manner. He walked right along the main road.

He came up to a rock by the side of the road right behind our vehicle and scent marked it and then he slowly headed towards his sleeping sibling. At one point he was almost stalking her, But when she woke up, his cover was blown and he soon lost interest.

The Tiger whose siesta was disturbed didn’t looked too pleased while the other cub soon realised it was time to move on. Our guide was quick to point out that he might follow the stream and come up ahead closer to a watering hole since he seemed to be headed that way.
