    There are NO PURE Bengal Tigers outside India,all the so called Bengals anywhere else in the world are generic hybrid Tigers,that are often called Bengals.

    Given that most of GorillaBoy's questions have been about different species at Howlets or Port Lympne,I think we can assume that this question is as well!

    If Manas has moved, and is now on his own, this could mean that his mate has died? They were housed next to the lynx by the Restaurant. Anyone has any info on this?

    Maybe you should have asked when you were there, perhaps you can ask on your next visit. It's really something the keepers would know. Have you tried trying to find the stud book (if they are breeding) or checked the current holdings on zooterlister. Google is your friend and first port of call in a research storm.
