- Created by photographer Sanjay Danai, 57, the snapshots capture the cubs when one of them kills a monkey
- The young people then enter into a vicious battle for the loot while cutting each other off in the water
These stunning photographs make brother and sister of tigers who cruelly chop each other with their claws in a dramatic battle for their first murder in India.
The brothers hunted with their mother when they encountered a water hole in the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, in Madhya Pradesh.
Taken by photographer Sanjay Danai, 57, the remarkable snapshots capture the cubs while one of them kills a monkey before the young people fight each other for the loot.
Sanjay said: & # 39; This was a morning game time for these cubs. Tiger cubs, especially at their sub-adult stage, are very playful. It is the time that they learn from their mother about hunting and survival skills. It was exciting to see them in action. & # 39;
Sanjay said the playfulness of the cubs prepared them for life without their mother. He added: & # 39; At the moment in the water you can judge the individual strengths of the cubs. When they are separated from their mother, the strongest of them form their own territory by bullying others. & # 39;
Toe to toe: one of the tiger brothers cling tightly to the monkey with his jaw while aggressively wiping his brother or sister, who leans back in a defensive position. They were caught in the midst of their fierce fighting at Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, in Madhya Pradesh, India
In the middle of it: the tigers lock claws as they both stretch on their hind legs. The annoying clash of these two hairy titans was captured by photographer Sanjay Danai, 57
Paws to think about: one of the tigers seems to get the upper hand during their vicious collision and seems to pause his attack, giving his brother or sister the chance to withdraw
Raw power: At the start of the fight, both brothers run through the water hole and storm towards each other, unwilling to give up their first murder
Hands off! The brothers and sisters stand upright and at the same time reach out to each other, cutting each other in the face
