Ranthambore is synonymous with tiger in Rajasthan. When the existence of the Royal Bengal Tiger was reduced to Pakistan through the western countries, at that time the mountain ranges of Ranthambore, the confluence of the Aravalli and Vindhyachal mountain ranges in Rajasthan, gave protection to the tigers. In the year 1901, there were 6 thousand tigers in Rajasthan, out of which 5 thousand were found in these two mountain ranges. But after that the number of tigers continued to decrease. In the year 2006, there were only 18 tigers left in the whole of Rajasthan,
in Ranthambore only in just 15 years, this number has once again increased from 18 to 100. Of which 72 are in Ranthambore. 11 tigers of Ranthambore were given to Sariska and Mukandra forest area. Today, there is not a single tiger in the state, in which part of any tiger of Ranthambore is not present. Tigers here are also found in Dholpur and Karauli districts. Apart from this, tigers knock from here on crossing the Chambal river, through Sheopur to Datia and on the other side from Agra.
