    Call her Sultanpur, Noor, Mala, or T-39, but she has captured the interest of many visitors to Ranthambore. This magnificent tigress is renowned for her beauty and wavy body pattern.

    Her names have been bestowed to her with great importance. She was first given the name “Mala,” which translates to “necklace” in Hindi, because to the ornamental stripes that resembled beads on her side flanks.

    She was given the name “Noor,” which means glow, because the visitors were drawn to her wavy patterns because they reminded them of sparkles. Some people refer to her as the Sultanpur female since she was born to the Sultanpur female T-13 (Choti).

    Mala : The tigress t-39 that everyone fell in love with right away!

    Mala Tigress T-39 was raised in Guda/Sultanpur, the southernmost region of the park, and is descended from Machali, the stately lady of Ranthambore, who is the great matriarch. She was an outgoing cub who quickly gained a lot of popularity among the guests (T-16).

    T-13 raised two cubs with T-12 when T-12 broke off from her mother at the age of two. Following that, the male tiger T-12 was quickly sent to Sariska in the year 2010.

    T-24, also known as Sutanpur of Ranthambore, rules Mala.

    As a consequence, the Sultanpur Male took control of the region that T-12 (Mala’s father) had left behind (T-24). Mala’s mother feared Sultanpur Male might harm her and her new siblings as a result of this warning sign. Mala was left alone and subject to Sultanpur Male’s tyranny when Mala’s mother had to leave the region.

    T-38, one of Mala’s brothers, mysteriously disappeared around the same time. Later, it was discovered in the MP region, close to the Kuno Palpur Sanctuary. The similarities in the striped patterns allowed for the identification of her brother, and more proof that it was the same missing brother of Mala.

    T-38 impressively traversed the majestic Chambal River during the perilous over 100-mile trek. The relocation of her brother really sparked excitement among forest rangers and conservationists about how the Kuno Palpur Sanctuary was running.

    How Simillars she looks

    Mala, alias Tigress T-39, is enjoying her reign in her domain right now. She may be seen wandering among the zones of Zones I, II, and VI of Ranthambore, including Singhdwar, Sultanpur, Kala Peela Pani, Phootah Bhanda, and Kishni Ka Deh.
