Sultan (T-72): The Missing Prince Of Ranthambore National Park

Sultan T-72

Ranthambore National Park is a popular tourist place to see Bengal tigers in their natural habitat. This wildlife sanctuary has played a pivotal role in conserving wildlife from extinction. Tigers who have been victims of poaching consider this park their home. Tourists from India and abroad are excited to see these big felines at safari zones in Ranthambore National Park. Today, we will briefly overview Sultan (T-72), a tiger who went missing for a few months. 

Sultan (T-72): A playful and naughty cub

Sultan (T-72) had been a playful and naughty cub who used to hang around with his mother, Noor (T-39). He was named ‘Sultan’ as he inhabited the Sultanpur area. Even as a cub, he was very energetic, never letting any opportunity slip away from his grip. He used to stalk Nilgais who were bigger than him in size. Also, he was seen chasing the tourist vehicle.

Close bonding with mother Noor (T-39)

Having no siblings to play around with, Sultan (T-72) was very attached to his mother, Noor. The mother-son duo often sat on dead leaves and splashed water in waterholes. Noor, a tolerant mother, welcomed her son’s naughty acts like biting on his ears. She could only respond to him with a low grunt. Capturing the motherly love of tigresses towards their cubs is one of the exciting activities to do in Ranthambore. These rarest sights are not to be missed. 

Fight with father Ustad (T-24)

Unlike his mother, Noor (T-39), with whom Sultan (T-72) had a great bond, it differed from his father, Ustad (T-24). Both had quarrels that resulted in bruises on Sultan’s body. However, the young tiger was never driven out by his father. The zones the Sultan (T-72) dominates are Singh Dwar, Kala Peela Pani, Kharia, Sultanput, Khemcha Kund, Soleshwar, Chuli Deh and Amareshwar Dang.

Prince went missing

Sultan (T-72) was often seen with his parents in Sultanpur, the south-west part of the Ranthambore National Park. When he grew up as an adult tiger, he separated from his mother, T-39, in January 2015. But in May 2015, he was found missing. This raised concern for the authorities of Ranthambore National Park. The disappearance of Sultan (T-72) led to speculations about his existence, like whether any other male tiger might have killed him, but no evidence came as such. It took a long week to trace him, but all efforts went in vain.

Return of Prince

After hardcore efforts to find the lost prince, it came as a sigh of relief when the Sultan (T-72) was re-sighted in Ranthambore National Park. He frequently visited the Kaila Devi Sanctuary Region of Ranthambore National Park. Sultan (T-72) was also spotted making a move towards the Dagra Plateau region. According to officials of the region, the tiger had hunted a cow in this area. But the chances are very bleak whether the Sultan (T-72) would successfully reclaim the territory dominated by his father Ustad (T-24), since after his long-time return, young tigers now dominate the territory.
