Two baby tigers spotted in the Nauradehi wildlife reserve
Sagar (Madhya Pradesh): The tigress ‘Radha’ has given birth to two cubs, bringing the number of striped animals to seven in Madhya Pradesh’s largest Nauradehi game reserve, an official said on Sunday.
Radha from the first litter gave birth to three cubs in 2020.
“A feline named Radha has given birth to two cubs. We have spotted the two new guests at our sanctuary,” Division Ranger Sudhansu Yadav told PTI.
He said Radha from Kanha Tiger Reserve and Kanha Tiger from Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve – two tiger habitats (reserves) located in eastern Madhya Pradesh – were transferred to Nauradehi in 2018.
Nauradehi is the largest wildlife reserve in Madhya Pradesh, covering an area of 1,197 km² in the districts of Sagar, Damoh and Narsinghpur.
Yadav said the shrine plans to build a tiger trail in the park for tourists who want to get a glimpse of the majestic beasts.
MP is home to six tiger reserves – Kanha, Banghavgarh, Satpura, Pench, Panna and Sanjay-Dubri, officials said.
MP had the highest number of 56 big cats according to the last tiger census. The 2018 port of the All India Tiger Estimation Report found the presence of 2,967 striped animals in the country.
