Additional Trivia :

During the 1980's, Ranthambore National Park, Rajasthan, had a famous tiger called 'X'. 

'X' was known for his hunting technique, as he used to chase his prey into a lake and snatch it right from the jaws of the crocodiles. 

Legend has it that he had the highest success rates of all tigers, as one in five of his hunts ended in a kill.

Unfortunately, 'X' fell victim to a poacher and disappeared from the jungles forever.
