It's a hot summer morning in Bandhavgarh. Huge Male Tiger known as Bamera's son (Aka Bamera Junior - T 37) is seen relaxing with his two cubs at this man made waterhole. The third cub arrives at the spot & is in no mood to relax & starts playing with the tree trunk. The other two cubs are watching their sibling having fun but are not in mood to join. All this while their mother Junior Kankati (Aka New Kankati - T 35) was relaxing deep inside the forest. Finally the playful cub decides to take a nap.
Note: Unfortunately Junior Kankati was poached & skinned & her skeletal remains were found by BTR authorities in the month of October 2017.
Filmed at Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, Madhya Pradesh, May 2017.
