Sandeep Parmar: " Hey look at that deer... Let's catch it for dinner !

An asiatic lion cub with other female of the pride.
Asiatic lions mate foremost between October and November. Gestation lasts about 110 days. Litters comprise one to four cubs. Mostly the mother raises the cubs and other females of the pride helps in that. It is observed that other lactating female feed cubs of other female also. The lioness in the pride and their cubs have a strong bond and all follows the head female of the pride! Truly matriarchal family!"

A video about Gir Reserve again...








"Asiatic Lion - Sasan Gir | INDIA Sasan Gir is one of India’s oldest sanctuaries, and is synonymous with the majestic Asiatic lion. This is some raw clip taken @ GIZ Devalia Safari also known as Gir Interpretation Zone - Devalia. There are animals like Asiatic lions, Leopards, Blue Bull, Sambhar, Chital, Jackal, Black buck, Wild Boar etc. The presence of Savana habitat and other flora is also another attraction of the area. Many rare birds including Peafowl and vultures are common in the GIR."

Heartening to see pride of gir lions enjoying beyond boundaries during this lockdown period. They were captured on camera enjoying a dip in Shetrunji river in Amreli.

As the state is gradually getting back to normal after the nation-wide lockdown due to outbreak of novel coronavirus easing, Gujarat forest department on Sunday said that a decision to conduct the 15th lion census would be taken in the next few days.

“Discussions are are on about conducting the lion census and a final decision is likely to be taken within a few days,” Dushyant Vasavada, chief conservator of forests of Junagadh wildlife circle, told The Indian Express on Sunday.

The pentennial lion population estimation exercise was scheduled to be undertaken early this month. However, it was deferred due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the nation wide lockdown. Government offices were working with minimal staff and 1,523 forest guards, foresters and range forest officers were deputed to enforce the lockdown.
“Those offices and guards have been repatriated to the forest department now. We have enough staff to conduct the lion census. We are making a plan and will consolidate the staff in Gir forest,” Dinesh Kumar Shar-ma, principal chief conservator of forests and head of forest force (PCCF& HoF) of Gujarat said.

It was for the first time in 20 years that a lion census had to be deferred. The 11th lion census was scheduled to be conducted in year 2000 but due to rains in summer that year, it had to be deferred to the next year.
The Junagadh CCF, under whose jurisdiction the Gir forest and other protected areas – the last natural habitat of Asiatic lions in the world – falls, said that the census has to be done in summer. “During monsoon and winter, access to forests will be difficult. During summer, the animals remain around water points. Therefore, counting is easier,” said Vasavada.

vivekvegda-The Asiatic lion is a Panthera leo leo population in India. Its range is restricted to the Gir National Park and environs in the Indian state of Gujarat.

On the IUCN Red List, it is listed under its former scientific name Panthera leo persica as Endangered because of its small population size and area of occupancy.
