Jaipur: Two cubs of tigress Rambha – Ridhi and Rudra – will soon become popular sight among people visiting Nahargarh Biological Park in Jaipur. They are now around two months old and were released from their cage into the small surrounding area recently.  The tourist at Nahargarh Biological Park in Jaipur will be able to see them after four months, said officials.

The forest department is monitoring the activities of the cubs round the clock.

Tigress ‘Rambha’ gave birth to three cubs at Nahargarh Biological Park on December 7. The cubs were fathered by Tiger ‘Nahar’.

One of the three cubs of Tigress ‘Rambha’ died on December 11 just four days after his birth.

The reason for the cub’s death was lack of oxygen in a heart ailment as per the postmortem report. It is called cardiopulmonary failure in medical terms.

The authorities usually monitor all the activities of newly born cubs and their mother through cameras. The human interruption around them is not allowed. The mother on sighting any human intervention tries to hide her cubs with her mouth and paws, which could be harmful to newly borns.

Rambha was born at ‘Jaipur Zoo’ in August 2014. Doctors were checking her health conditions from time to time. Earlier, Rambha had given birth to two cubs in February 2018. Doctors said that the cubs were born dead.
