Behavioural Correlates of Predation by Tiger (Panthera tigris) & Leopard (Panthera pardus) in Corbett Tiger Reserve, Ramnagar UK. India
Abstract: Nature is very clever and full of miracles. It maintains and manages each and everything (living & non living) on this planet earth very wisely, nicely, smoothly and systematically. Existence of such creatures depends mainly upon two factors viz. nature (force of natural selection) and use/disuse of natural resources by man, presently the supreme creature ruling the planet1 and manipulating the ecosystem deliberately or ignorantly as per his own will to fulfill his selfish and shortsighted desire. The food and feeding behaviour2 of both big cats are different, tiger is not so furious than leopard while tiger is more intelligent than man. Leopards have very good quality of feasible habit with surroundings even in human-dominated area. For predation habit the scat analysis technique as a methodology had been chosen for this study.
