Swamp tiger of Sunderban

Sunderbans form a part of the largest mangrove forest in the world. Tigers of Sunderban, often called swamp tigers have adapted themselves in the hostile environement of muddy soil, fluctuating tide levels, scarcity of prey and saline water. Often they have to swim large distances to patrol their area or in search of prey. They are the possibly only man-eaters found in the wild.
