In 2003 I hunted for tigers all around Mugu. I only found a few of these beauties. They were wonderful and as mated couples (in the aquaria), they shared food (kills). Today, I found many many of them on the mudflats and in areas I found without any tigers in 2003 . There were also many many larvae burrows, too. I was concerned for their population because of the heavy rains this last winter. But, it seems they are doing well and so are their favorite food - beach bugs and sand flies.
Two of these golden beauties were brought home and fed cat food and house flies. YUM!
