As she cautiously makes her way through the shallows, she keeps a watchful eye on the deer to ensure that none of them turn round. Each time the 3 deers bent their head for drinking the tigress cautiously swum closer by. After 5 minutes when she had approached the deers at a distance of about 12 meters she started her ultimate attack.
At that time she was called P2 but a naturalist guide in Kabini told me recently that this tigress is now called Maya and she is the reigning queen of Pandharpauni. She had 2 cubs in 2013 and 3 cubs in 2015.
