Thank you very much!
Sadly for me (wish it was in the wild) this was spotted in Guwahati Zoo Assam, which is why I was able to take such a close snap. I just took the photo in such a way that it looked to be in the wild.
But yeah, a bit east from Guwahati it is Kaziranga National Park which probably has the highest density of Tiger population in the world.

Wow. What's the story here? How did you get so close? What was the habitat and protection status of the location of your spotting? Thanks in advance for sharing this information with the community!
