One more tiger has been spotted at the Indravati Tiger Reserve at Bijapur in Chhattisgarh, taking the number of tigers there from five to six.

Forest Department            officials said trap cameras had been installed to                monitor wild animals. A photograph of a tiger was taken by a camera. 

The photograph was sent to the Wildlife Institute Tiger Cell, Dehradun, for verification. The Tiger Cell                     confirmed that it was a new tiger, an official communication said.

The Indravati Tiger Reserve has conducive            habitat for tigers as it is also home to wild buffalo, gaur, leopard, bear, nilgai, deer, sambar and wild boar.

The reserve has a geographical area of 2799.086 sq km. Its 1.5 km forest is adjacent to the forest area of Maharashtra and Telangana. It acts as a suitable corridor for the movement of tigers.

The other day, people found two leopard cubs in Cherpalli village. Both the cubs were handed over to the Forest Department and have been shifted to the Jungle Safari (zoo) at Naya Raipur.
