A tentative pat. India: THESE INCREDIBLE images show how curious tigers can delay bikers from getting home while examining their motorbikes. One image shows the tiger playfully patting the motorbike with its paw, inspecting every inch of the bike through touch and smell. The Bengal tiger can grow up to 83 inches long with the addition of a 43-inch tail, and can weigh up to 570 pounds. These images were captured by wildlife photographer and conservationist Sarosh Lodhi (49) at Umrer Karhandla in Maharashtra, India. ?The images here are of sub-adult tigers, they are curious in nature and hence are totally intrigued when they saw the bikes parked on the village road that passes through the forest, ? said Sarosh. ?The tigers examined the bike closely by smelling and touching it. ?Images like these give us an insight into the animal?s behaviour, the way they react to different situations and man-made products around them. ?You don?t find these images easily, it?s a great feeling to record such behaviour and share it with the world.? mediadrumimages/SaroshLodhi
