The rare sight of six tigers walking together has blown the internet. This morning, actor Randeep Hooda took to Twitter to share a video of a group of tigers walking on an unpaved road in a forest. The undated video was reportedly filmed at the Umred-Karhandla Wildlife Sanctuary near Nagpur in Maharashtra.
In the video, two people off camera can be heard talking as the tigers walk towards them. A few seconds after the start of the clip, a vehicle approaches the felines from behind. Upon spotting the vehicle, one of the tigers disappears into the forest, while others continue to walk.
Sharing the clip on Twitter, actor Randeep Hooda wrote: “Chappar phad ke“- a phrase in Hindi used to denote an unexpected amount. The actor said he received the clip via WhatsApp.

Tigers are solitary animals and do not form packs, which makes the sighting all the more special, as senior Indian Forest Service officer Ramesh Pandey pointed out in his response to the video.
âThis is something really interesting going on,â he wrote on Twitter. However, although rare, sightings of tigers in groups are not unheard of. Pandey said packs of five tigers have been spotted in various parts of the country in the past, but the sight of six tigers together is “really amazing,” he added.
âIn the recent past we have seen groups of 5 tigers in Panna, Pench and Dudhwa and now 6 tigers together is something really amazing,â the IFS officer wrote.

Tigers are solitary by nature, with the exception of mothers and their young. Although they do not form family units and adult tigers largely live solitary lives, they will socialize with other tigers when they come into contact with them.
