There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Ten years ago, during a family trip of Kerala I visited Periyar Tiger Reserve. 
Due extremely dense vegetation they don't have a car-safari system because sighting chances would be near nil. Tourism is only as a nature trail near the entrance at Thekkady & the famous boat safari at parts of the reservoir on the Periyar river.

100-150ft high trees. Look massive up close.

The boat jetty... if any of you ever go there and make sure to only do the afternoon safari from 4pm. Morning safari is much drier.

First catch was a small gaur herd. There's more in the undergrowth to the left... You may see silhouettes.
