  10 Fascinating Facts about the Indian Rhinoceros
Posted by: mukiria - 03-16-2023, 09:32 PM - Forum: Carnivorous and Omnivores Animals, Excluding Felids - No Replies
View video below

Today I would like to share with you 10 fascinating facts about the Indian rhino, one of the most impressive and unique creatures on our planet.

1. The Indian rhino, also known as the greater one-horned rhino, is the largest of the rhino species found in Asia.
2. These rhinos are primarily found in India and Nepal, and they are usually found in grasslands, swamps, and forested areas.
3. Indian rhinos can weigh up to 2,700 kg and can grow up to 2 meters tall at the shoulder. Imagine standing next to such a magnificent animal!
4. The Indian rhino has a single horn, which can grow up to 25 inches long, and is made of keratin, the same substance as our hair and nails.
5. Indian rhinos are herbivores and feed on grasses, leaves, and fruits. They can consume up to 150 pounds of food a day!
6. They have a lifespan of around 40-50 years in the wild. Just like us, they can live a long and fulfilling life.
7. The Indian rhino has a prehensile upper lip that allows it to grasp and pull vegetation. This is a unique feature that sets it apart from other rhino species.
8. Indian rhinos have poor eyesight but an excellent sense of smell and hearing. They use their sense of smell to locate food and avoid predators.
9. Unlike most other rhinos, Indian rhinos love to wallow in mud and water, which helps them to cool down and protect themselves from insects and parasites.
10. The Indian rhino was once on the brink of extinction, with only a few dozen individuals left in the early 1900s. Thanks to conservation efforts, their numbers have increased, and they are now classified as a vulnerable species by the IUCN. This serves as a reminder of the importance of conservation efforts and the impact they can have on preserving endangered species.

In conclusion, the Indian rhino is truly an amazing animal, and we must continue to work towards protecting and preserving them for future generations to come.

  Current status of lion prides
Posted by: Potato - 01-21-2023, 04:20 PM - Forum: Lion - Replies (8)
I though it would be a good idea if we would make separate topic, constantly updated for to keep on current numbers and status different prides has. In that we would share informations on changes in numbers within the prides. Kinda a bit similar thread to "map of sabi sands coalitions and prides: thread.

Starting of:

Prides of Thornybush:

Monwana (also known as "Northern") pride:
5 adult females 
4 subadult males sired by Xikukutsu and Mapoza male, born February-March 2021
4 subadult females sired by Xikukutsu and Mapoza male, born February-March 2021
3 cubs sired by Mapoza male born in March 2022 
Dominant male: lone Mapoza male

Guernsey breakaway pride:
3 adult females 
Dominant males: 4 Black Dam males

Of course similar lists for Manyelati, Timabavati and Sabi Sands prides should follow done by either me or some other forum member(s) (of course every input is most welcome). Also if there is some mistake on either list then share your own informations in order to fix every wrong info that might or already may have happened on some list.

  Travel tips to keep in mind for Coorg
Posted by: ankithkumar - 12-01-2022, 03:10 PM - Forum: Vacations and Holidays - No Replies
The beautiful large hill town where nature is at its very best is Coorg, Karnataka. It has a lot to offer for travelers like woody slopes, sprawling coffee plantations, alluring peaks, evergreen timber forests with a cool climate, scenic attractions, and adventurous terrain. There are some things to keep in mind before planning a vacation to Coorg.
Here we list some useful tips before heading to Coorg.
[b]Know the best time to visit[/b]
While planning for a vacation to Coorg think about the monsoon & months when you are visiting. The best time to travel to Coorg is from [b]October to May[/b]. The temperature will be not too hot or too cold, which is good for travel. From [b]June to September is romantic[/b] & heaven for honeymooners From November to January the temperature during nighttime drops gradually. So carry warm clothes with you when you travel.
[b]Book a best homestay or resort[/b]
Before planning for a vacation to Coorg, research for the good hotels, homestays, or resorts in Coorg. There are a huge number of resorts in Coorg. Take caution before booking resorts online.
1. Choose a resort property [b]that offers the best facilities[/b] like the best premium rooms, delicious food, free wifi, jeep safari, outdoor games, and children’s play area, spa & more.
2. Check their [b]website, reviews & ratings, get[/b] contact numbers, and talk to property managers before booking.
3. Check the security of homestays or resorts before booking.
4. Book resorts or homestays that are in decent places and nearby to Madikeri town.
[b]Keep a sufficient amount of cash[/b]
Since it is a large hill station, finding ATMs or Banks is not easy. Very few banks and ATMs are available in Madikeri. So [b]keep an adequate amount of hard cash[/b] in hand for expenses like shopping, buying things in local shops. It is hard to pay in mobile too since there will be no network coverage in the largest hill stations.
[b]Be conscious on the roads[/b]
One of the important tips is to be cautious about driving on the roads of hill stations like Coorg.[b] Avoid traveling at night[/b] or travel with caution during winter after 3 PM as there will be a misty fog climate and the roads will not be clear. A major reason for this is roads in this region are very narrow and driving at night is very risky. [b]Carry important items[/b] like medical kit, water, umbrella, torchlight, fruits, etc. for any emergency purpose
[b]Hire a private vehicle[/b]
If you are coming with friends or family as a group, hiring a private vehicle on rent from Bangalore, Mysore, or Mangalore to Coorg will be the best option as getting a vehicle from the local town is not easy especially on the long weekends or peak tourist seasons.
These are the most important things to be noted before planning to Coorg. Another important thing is smoking in the public is not allowed in Coorg, Usage of plastics is not allowed, respect the locals & their culture and maintain peace while on the roads avoid noise.

Wink Pench & Kanha National Park-Tiger Safari Tours
Posted by: falconwatch - 11-10-2022, 11:48 AM - Forum: Vacations and Holidays - No Replies
Pench National Park is not like the others. This teak forest, which can be found in the AVSM belt (which encompasses the Aravali, Vindhyanchal, Satpura, and Maikal Ranges), is an interesting alternative and a welcome change from the typical and picturesque parks of Kanha and Bandhavgarh. When compared to Kanha and Bandhavgarh, the tracks here are easier to navigate, the trees are denser, and there is more dense undergrowth. This could be one of the reasons why the herbivore population here is far bigger. This location is notable for its lack of sound. You begin to believe that you are the King when all of a sudden, your driver stops after noticing the pugmarks left by the real King of the area. He displays them to you, and then all of a sudden you hear an alarm call coming from one of the inhabitants of the jungle. A tiger has just crossed. You, your driver, your naturalist are all awake. Looking in the direction that the call was coming from, her eyes were much larger than normal, and her heart was beating at a rate of 120 beats per minute. You want to see the real King of Pench, the one with ears as enormous as an elephant's, don't you? As the story progresses, you realise that you are in Pench, the genuine and authentic Kipling Country.

There are approximately one hundred Bengal tigers and a great number of other species that can be discovered in the expansive, natural, and breathtaking Kanha National Park. It is generally recognised as one of India's finest national parks, has an exceptional track record of conservation, and provides tourists with the opportunity to escape into a huge environment reminiscent of The Jungle Book, in which the majestic Bengal tiger reigns supreme.

Kanha is often considered to be one of the finest national parks in all of India due to its expansive sal woodland and open grassland meadows. The location of this city may be found in the state of Madhya Pradesh. Because of the presence of Bengal tigers in the area, tourists travel from all over the world to see them. This vast wilderness is home to a wide variety of resident and migratory birds, such as peacocks and vultures, as well as leopards, Indian bison, langurs, wild boar, and jackals. Peacocks and vultures are among the resident species. In addition to the most powerful of the big cats, the Royal Bengal Tiger, numerous antelope and deer can be seen in huge numbers in Kanha's meadows. These animals include the rare hard-ground barasinga swamp deer, which is now the official state animal of Madhya Pradesh.

Posted by: BigLion39 - 09-30-2022, 12:47 PM - Forum: Lion - Replies (2)
I know this was talked about a lot over the years but I ran across a post in FB and apparently by someone who is in the field. Heres what he said about that common problem of the rear hip just wasting away, some lions have a black patchy spot with no hair too. He was commenting on a pic of the Birmingham #7 sub unfortunately after his 6 bros left the area....
