Let’s learn something about this magnificent wildlife reserve

Ranthambore National Park’s Wildlife
The reserve is home to more than 270 species of birds. Other than tigers, you will also see leopard, nilgai, wild boar, sambar, hyena, sloth bear, and chital; not only that. You will also see various plants, trees, birds, and reptiles. Here is an exciting story.
In 2005, the tiger count here was only 26. This number is lower than the 44 tigers that lived in Ranthambore in 1982, i.e., 44. However, in just three years, the government experts restored the tigers. It was found in a survey that the tigers in 2008 were 34 along with 14 cubs, totaling the number to 48. It happened because of the efforts by the wildlife management authority, which took the initiative to protect our tigers and make sure that our animals are in good health.
Now, the Ranthambore tigers have even got unique names and have individual identities. This is due to the emotional connection with wildlife photographers, experts, and jungle officials with the tigers. Some of the most famous names include Machali, Dollar, Sitara, Bina One, and Bina Two. Surprisingly the tiger population here so big that some of the tigers were shifted to other national parks. Currently, this destination holds:
- 40 mammal species.
- 320 bird species.
- 40 reptile species.
- 02 amphibian species.
- 50 butterfly species.
- 300 plant species.
