Yes Munna retains his hold over his domain at Kanha National Park. The big male tiger was hard pressed to retain his kingdom by a bigger more powerful male Lal Aankh which I had first seen at Mahua Dari in Sarhi Zone.
This is amazing Munna is considered to be about nine years old while Lal Aankh is much younger. On my last trip there was a constant scuffle between the two male tigers and at that time nothing could be concluded.On my recent trip I saw Munna at his favorite perch Siliyari Jalayasay calm and fully composed with know hint of any fear.
Perhaps it is experience that counts in territorial fights. Or is the battle just begun we will see with time to come....
