Video footage of a rare sight of as many as six tigers walking together in a row in a forest has been posted by Indian Forest Service officer Susanta Nanda.
If you haven’t seen a tiger herd, here it is😘
Remarkable here to note is, a tigress usually have a litter of 2 to 4 only. Five is unusual and survival of all the cubs is rare. Indicating a high density of prey animals in the habitat & little human influence on it. pic.twitter.com/x4tQFiA0z1

The officer points out that it is rare to see a streak of so many tigers together. "Remarkable here to note is, a tigress usually has a litter of two to four only. Five is unusual and survival of all the cubs is rare. Indicating a high density of prey animals in the habitat and little human influence on it," Mr Nanda wrote.
The video shows that while the six tigers cross the mud road in the forest, tourists in jeeps have been lucky to get an opportunity to click photos of the majestic animals.
A group of tigers is known as a “streak” or an “ambush” of tigers. Tigers are naturally solitary animals, spending most of their day alone and roaming their hunting grounds. Still, there is an occasional cause that requires groups of tigers to travel and live together for periods, according to wildlife experts.
