Sunderban/mangrove  tigers(Panthera tigris tigris/bengalensis) are no smaller than the mainland bengal tigers. there are some reports of some big males reaching 240kg+ . few years earlier in Khulna, there was a report of a large tiger killing a huge 17 foot 1800lb saltwater crocodile! so don't think the tigers are small. but now-a-days though, tigers are found smaller because of their decreased numbers and loss of habitat. j

i can answer ur imaginery questions if u ask me.

Expertise

I can answer most questions relating to real or hypothetical situations. I have a better understanding of animal behavior and specifically predatory behavior and interspecies predatory relationships. Mammals is my field of expertise but I can do my best in answering questions regarding other animals. Small mammals are my favourite matchups. One or two prehistoric match-ups is OK, but please do not focus on them as they are outside my expertise.

Experience

Even before completing my degree I considered myself an expert in mammal behavior. Doing my degree only furthered my interest and knowledge in the subject. After uni I got the opportunity to spend 6 months in South Africa and Kenya where I spent nearly every day basically observing and studying the animals of the savanna.

Education/Credentials
BSc Degree in Zoology from the Melbourne University, Australia.
