Family love ❤️ three of raj bhera's cubs at 9 months old, still totally dependent on their mother for protection and food. raj bhera did an incredible job at protecting her four cubs and readying them for adulthood.

Raj bhera's female cub biba appearing at the mouth of a cave. the only girl in a litter of four, biba eventually had to forge her own path in the jungle to survive.

two of raj bhera's male cubs getting curious about the #dynasties camera crew. tiger cubs, just like domestic kittens are incredibly lively and learn survival techniques through play - and their innate curiosity!

munga is father to raj bhera's cubs, resting on patrol of his territory. his presence in the area keeps them safe from other males who could threaten the cubs.

raj bhera from this week's #dynasties on territorial patrol, peering around a large sal tree. female tigers often remain within the same home range for their lifetime, while male tigers may establish new home ranges over the years. tigers mark their territory with scent and visual cues. the most basic means of scent marking is urinating on trees or rocks surrounding the boundary of the territory. tigers produce a unique type of u***e with a longer lasting scent for this purpose. they also visually establish their territory by scraping out marks along the boundary.

just hanging out. biba, raj bhera's daughter, resting in a tree out of the midday sun and away from her boisterous brothers. differences between male and female cubs begin to appear early on in their development, with male cubs taking part in more rough play-fighting.

say hello to raj bhera, one of the stars of this week's episode of #dynasties. here, she uses her camouflage to try to ambush prey in the dry summer grasslands. tiger's hunt success rate is relatively low at around 17-19% for individuals and rising to around 30% when hunting in groups. as tigers spend the majority of their time alone, it can be a struggle to find their next meal.

a 22 month old male tiger in bandhavgarh national park, india. when fully grown, males tigers can reach a total length of up to 4m, making them the largest of the big cats, in close competition with african lions. unlike the lion, these cats spend most of their lives in solitude, leaving their mother at two years of age and fighting for their own territory.

Two tiny hunters in the making 😍🐯 tiger cubs learn to hunt by watching their mother and practicing on their siblings and anything else that moves!

tigers aren’t known for their climbing skills, so when they go up it can be a struggle to get back down! this cub clings on to the tree, trying to work out how to get to the ground.

one of raj bhera's sons, nearly fully grown. tiger cubs are usually fully equipped to hunt for themselves by around 18 months old, but often stay with their mothers until about two and a half years, when they'll leave the family and start to mark out their own territory.

#earthonlocation by @webbtheo 🐯 this is one of raj bhera's male cubs after a big meal. tigers rest most of the day, especially when they have eaten. we follow raj bhera in this week's episode of #dynasties .
