Machhali oldest tigress

It was nearly a month ago when Machhali, the world’s most photographed tigress, enthralled tourists at the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve. With growing age, her sightings are becoming few and far between, but as it is widely believed that she has turned 20 this year, her long survival has won her another distinction: the world’s oldest tigress in the wild.

While experts are surprised over her longevity, there are some ‘wild’ theories on how she has managed to live so long when the maximum age of a tiger in the wild is 14-15 years.
