These huge Tuskers are the pride of our country. Sightings like these are an indication of the tremendous efforts that the forest department and various NGOs have taken to conserve wildlife from poachers.

WILD ELEPHANT GOES ON RAMPAGE, DAMAGES 100 HOUSES, CARS, BIKES AND MORE IN SILIGURI, INDIA !
A wild elephant rampaged through a Indian town on Wednesday, smashing homes and sending frightened residents running.
As the panicked elephant ran amok, trampling parked cars and motorbikes, crowds of people gathered to watch from balconies and roof tops. Some followed from a distance as the elephant moved through the streets.
The elephant had wandered from the Baikunthapur forest, crossing roads and a small river before entering the town of Siliguri in West Bengal state.
Divisional Forest Officer Basab Rai said the female elephant appeared to be a loner, and was likely searching for food when it strayed into the town.
He said it did not attack any people, and appeared to be afraid of anyone approaching. After several hours, it became clear the elephant was unable to find its way back to the forest.
Authorities eventually shot the elephant three times with a tranquilizer gun and used a crane to lift it into a truck once it had calmed down.
It was then taken to a special park for domesticated pachyderms that is maintained by the forest department. Once the effect of the tranquilizer wore off, authorities planned to return the elephant to the forest, Rai said.

That's a tuskless bull elephant, also called 'Makhna'. Impressive looking specimen, atleast 10 feet tall.

I am not sure you knew it, but it's actually called the red headed vulture.

Back when I was a kid, there were vultures all over India, even the cities. I used to see them hovering way way up in the sky (they fly so high!). Once a cow was killed on railway tracks near my home, and I saw dozens of vultures, eagles and kites feasting on it. My very own National Geographic moment, lol.

Yes, I actually did know they were called that, but only after researching them first haha

Its very sad whats happening to Indian and African Vultures, they will most likely be heading towards extinction very soon. The poisoning of carcasses is catastrophic to them and with out them all the waters will fill with unfinished animal carcasses, rot the water supply for the locals and in turn it will make everybody in the surrounding areas very sick.
Very sad to see

The population drop of Indian vultures was disastrous. By the time they figured out it was due to diclofenac, it had dropped from millions to a few thousand. Thankfully that drug is banned now and the population is now slowly recovering.

BEARS of the last frontier... The caribou's longevity stems in part from its infinitely well-adapted physiology and behavior. These animals are made for the cold. Their short compact bodies are covered with thick woolly hair under an outer layer of guard hairs that are hollow to aid insulation and flotation in water. Their large muzzles regulate air temperature to ease breathing, and their hooves perform seasonal miracles by hardening in winter months to break through ice in search of vegetation. They are the only deer species for which both sexes have antlers - which can grow an inch per day in the summer months! Although the bulls shed their antlers after the breeding season in the fall, the females retain theirs until after calving, perhaps as a defense against predators.

Charge! Terrifying moment a rhino smashed into tourists' car in African safari park - in the world's worst case of road rage
  • The terrifying moment an angry rhino charged a vehicle full of frightened tourists has been captured on camera 
  • Alexandra Poier, 48, was sitting in a nearby car when the remarkable attack occurred in a national park in Namibia
  • She described seeing the animal looking threatened and so it drove its horn deep into the side of the truck

This is the terrifying moment an angry rhino suffered a serious case of road rage - and charged straight into a group of tourists trapped inside a car.
Footage of the remarkable incident shows the animal first taking an unusual interest in the Toyota truck parked on a dusty road next to its grassland home.
But this interest quickly turns sinister when the rhino starts trotting towards the jeep - before breaking into a full sprint and ramming it as a group of horrified tourists cower inside.

The footage was taken in Etosha National Park in Namibia by Alexandra Poier, who was sitting inside a nearby car at the time.
The 48-year-old said the group of tourists inside the car escaped from the vehicle unhurt.
She said: 'I think the rhino saw a threat and that is why he attacked. To be honest, I was quite scared because it could have been our car.
'It happened very quickly and suddenly. After he went to the side of our car and we left quickly. The tour guide said this was a rare event.'
The black rhinoceros, which inhabits areas across southern and eastern Africa, is considered endangered and an unknown number of the animals live in the 8,600 sq m Etosha National Park.
Weighing up to 3,100lbs and with an ability to charge at 35mph, they are notorious for their aggression and willingness to run at any object that is unfamiliar.
