Rajasthan: India's one of the most loved and photographed tigress Machli breathed her last  on Thursday morning at Ranthambore National Park. 
The oldest surviving tigress in the wild, Machli had turned 20 this year which is remarkable as  the average age of a tiger in wild is 10-15 years. However, age finally got the better of her as she passed away after a period of brief illness. 
The tigress was called Machli due to a fish shaped mark on her face. She was well-known for her strength and had once killed a 12-foot long crocodile after a fierce battle. 
Well, the wilderness and beauty of Ranthambore will certainly be incomplete without its queen 'Machli', but her legacy will live on forever!
