The Tigress T-73 is quite famous among the tourists visiting this National Park and she is known to be a shy animal. She resides in zone 5 of the park. The sightings of cubs are important because of the reducing numbers of wild cats. It gives hope to the conservationists who work hard to increase the population of the country's national animal. Just a fortnight ago, a 7-year-old tiger from Sariska Tiger Reserve in Alwar passed away because of heatstroke.
