It seems this grand old lady has finally died at the great age of 19 years

I have to confess I´m almost glad she finally was allowed to "go". From what I read she had not been capable of fending for herself for years now, was fed, frail, without teeth - not the way a magnificent Tigress like her should end her life.
Still, a Ranthambore era is over now with her passing.
I think this is the video that cemented her "stardom" - Machli killing a Mugger croc:

I am planning to be back in Ranthambhore this November,will seem strange not to be looking forward to trying to see the old queen again. Consider myself fortunate to have seen her twice.
Old age for all animals can be a painful experience..She was a true legend to the end.. RIP.

"Beautiful ceremony for beloved tiger"
Given her reputation, Ranthambore National Park felt a ceremony to honor her life was fitting. They laid her down on a sheet, donned her with flowers, and carried her nobly to her resting place.
