Indian Forest Services officer Susanta Nanda made Friday morning a little brighter for many netizens as he shared a delightful video of a family of tigers at a watering hole. The video was filmed at Tadoba in Maharashtra and shows a tigress with three cubs. According to News 18 Lokmat, it was filmed by Ajit Kulkarni in 2018. It has been going viral online since it was posted on Twitter by Mr Nanda this morning.
In the video, the tigress is seen with three of her cubs as they drink water. While posting the short clip, Mr Nanda also shared a snippet of information about tigers - that they can survive for up to two weeks without food, but only for a maximum of four days without water.
Watch the video below:
Next few days will be at the tiger capital of India- Pench & Central Indian tiger landscape, source of life sustaining water for many. Just for information, a tiger can live without food for 2 weeks, but without water for 4 days max. Enjoy the clip of the family having water. pic.twitter.com/PL5U1dR69t— Susanta Nanda IFS (@susantananda3) November 8, 2019
