Tigers are rare, elusive animals, which is why the thrill of spotting one in its natural habitat is unmatched. It’s always a fascinating and once-in-a-lifetime experience to see a tiger in the wild. Recently, a thrilling wildlife spectacle unfolded before a group of tourists at Rajasthan’s Ranthambore National Park. In a video shared on Ranthambore National Park’s Instagram account, two tigers were seen chasing a deer, leaving spectators amazed. Notably, tigers are apex predators and are known for their prowess in killing prey. However, such a spectacle is unusual because tigers rarely hunt in packs.
In the video, the two tigers are seen running towards a deer as tourists seated on safari jeeps capture the rare sight in their cameras. However, despite their agility, the tigers lose track of the sprinting deer as it escapes unharmed.
“Two tigers chasing deer in Ranthambore,” reads the caption of the post.
