Kalachuri Kingdom

Bhoramdev Tiger Reserve.

This Kingdom ruled in west-central India between 6th and 7th centuries. They are also known as the Haihayas or as the “early Kalachuris” to distinguish them from their later namesakes. This kingdom included parts of present-day Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, and Maharashtra. The earliest of the Ellora and Elephanta cave monuments were built during this time. The Kalachuris lost their power to the Chalukyas of Vatapi in the 7th century. Krishnaraja (r. c. 550-575) is the earliest known ruler of the dynasty.
He issued coins featuring Brahmi script legends. His coins featuring a bull are based on the coins issued by Skandagupta. His silver coins were circulated widely for around 150 years after his reign. Shankaragana (r. c. 575-600) is the earliest ruler of the dynasty to be attested by his own inscriptions, which were issued from Ujjain and Nirgundipadraka.

His Ujjain grant is the earliest epigraphic record of the dynasty. Buddharaja conquered eastern Malwa, but he probably lost western Malwa to the ruler of Vallabhi. The invasion did not result in a complete conquest, as evident by Buddharaja’s 609-610 CE (360 KE) Vidisha and 610-611 CE (361 KE) Anandapura grants. The Kalachuris appear to have been the rulers of the Konkan coast, when some of the Elephanta monuments were built. Around 31 of his copper coins have been found on the Elephanta Island, which suggests that he was the patron of the main cave temple on the island.

Tiger

Tiger is the national animal. I hope you love too see him in Bhoramdev Tiger Reserve. Tiger is the largestcatspecies, most recognizable for its pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside. The species is classified in the genus Panthera with the lion, jaguar, leopard, and snow leopard. It is an apex predator, primarily preying on ungulates such as deer and bovids. It is territorial and generally a solitary but social predator. Tigers once ranged widely across eastern Eurasia, from the Black Sea in the west, to the Indian Ocean in the south, and from Kolyma to Sumatra in the east.

Body

Know we guide you some body features of tiger. So this will very helpful before visiting Bhoramdev Tiger Reserve. Over the past 100 years, they have lost at least 93% of their historic range, and have been extirpated from Western and Central Asia, from the islands of Java and Bali, and from large areas of Southeast, Southern, and Eastern Asia. Today, they range from the Siberian taiga to open grasslands and tropical mangrove swamps. The remaining six tiger subspecies have been classified as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The tiger is among the most recognisable and popular of the world’s charismatic megafauna. The size difference between males and females is proportionally greater in the large tiger subspecies, with males weighing up to 1.7 times more than females. Males also have wider forepaw pads than females, enabling gender to be told from tracks.

The heaviest wild tiger ever reported had a total body length of 3.38 m (11.1 ft) over curves. In either sex, the tail represents about 0.6 to 1.1 m (24 to 43 in) of total length.
Large male Siberian tigers reach a total length of more than 3.5 m (11.5 ft) over curves and 3.3 m (10.8 ft) between the pegs, with a weight of up to at least 300 kg (660 lb). This is considerably larger than the weight of 75 to 140 kg (165 to 309 lb) reached by the Sumatran tiger. At the shoulder, tigers may variously stand 0.7 to 1.22 m (2.3 to 4.0 ft) tall. The heaviest captive tiger was a Siberian tiger at 465 kg (1,025 lb). It has been hypothesised that body size of different tiger populations may be correlated with climate and be explained by thermoregulation and Bergmann’s rule.

Movements

Before visiting Bhoramdev Tiger Reserve must understand the movements of tigers.The tiger is a long-ranging species, and individuals disperse over distances of up to 650 km (400 mi) to reach tiger populations in other areas. Radio-collared tigers in Chitwan National Park started dispersing from their natal areas earliest at the age of 19 months. Four females dispersed between 0 and 43.2 km (0.0 and 26.8 mi), and 10 males between 9.5 and 65.7 km (5.9 and 40.8 mi). None of them crossed open cultivated areas that were more than 10 km (6.2 mi) wide, but moved through forested habitat.

Adult tigers lead largely solitary lives. They establish and maintain territories but have much wider home ranges within which they roam. Resident adults of either sex generally confine their movements to their home ranges, within which they satisfy their needs and those of their growing cubs. Individuals sharing the same area are aware of each other’s movements and activities. The size of the home range mainly depends on prey abundance, geographic area and sex of the individual. In India, home ranges appear to be 50 to 1,000 km2 (19 to 386 sq mi) while in Manchuria, they range from 500 to 4,000 km2 (190 to 1,540 sq mi). In Nepal, defended territories are recorded to be 19 to 151 km2 (7.3 to 58.3 sq mi) for males and 10 to 51 km2 (3.9 to 19.7 sq mi) for females.
