According to a Hindustan Times report, five-year-old Rama from Arignar Anna Zoological Park in Chennai was moved to the Sajjangarh Biological Park in Udaipur. This was done as part of an exchange program and two wolves were sent to Chennai from Jodhpur and Jaipur.

"We already have a tigress, Damini, brought in from the Pune zoo last year. The presence of a tiger will help in improving the tiger population," Rahul Bhatnagar, chief conservator of forests in Udaipur reportedly said.

Basically, either the zoo officials learn Tamil or they have to try and teach the tiger Mewari.

The zoo is considering getting a Tamil speaking trainer to work with the tiger as well.
