Some Mammals...and Others.... on the NTP2010 Meet, K.Gudi camp, BR Hills

Well, this post is NOT going to be about that mythical animal, the SIT (South Indian Tiger)....but as far as the other mammals went, the NTP meet had nothing to complain of....

Firstly, the

WILD BOAR

I don't know why they are called "wild" around the K.Gudi camp...there's an excellent symbiotic relationship between the two, and they are not afraid of humans at all!






The

ELEPHANTS are certainly not as common as they used to be, but are still easy enough to sight:


Here are two, mother and child, with the red mud on them:

Here are a few moving past:





The

GAUR or Wild Bison

are also beautiful, majestic animals, looking neatly shod with white socks!

Here's one giant, crossing the safari path:

CHITAL

stag had me photographing him in the rain:

We were also lucky to be able to sight a

FAN-THROATED LIZARD or Draco:

Right next to the parking lot was this spiral of the

SIGNATURE SPIDER :

and the

LANGUR

were, as usual, athletic, and leaping from tree to tree:

The rain on the first day was unrelenting....here's a video of the deer with the proud antlers, just to give an idea of how hard it was:












The

MALABAR GIANT SQUIRRELS

were also sighted several times:
