While staying at Svasara in Tadoba a few weeks ago, prior to my group's arrival, I led three safaris for a friendly, enthusiastic lodge guest called Doug. After Tadoba he went to Yala in Sri Lanka to search for the lovely kotiya subspecies of the leopard, which I have not seen since March 2012. He has been kind enough to send these photos of P1, or Chhoti Tara, the tigress we saw together twice (in addition to Gabbar, the father of her cubs) and of a leopard in Yala.
