The famous tiger Waghdoh, a popular attraction at the Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR) near Nagpur, died of old age on Monday. He was arguably one of India’s oldest tigers in the wild and died at the age of 19 or 20 years. Waghdoh was also arguably one of the biggest tigers in India. But some wildlife lovers are of the opinion that the tigers of Dudhwa National Park and Jim Corbett National Park are bigger.
