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.

The Sambar deer:
Despite some believes, the Sambar deer, specially the large males, are very dangerous animals, much more than the wildebeest.
 
Valmik Thapar in his book “Tiger: The secret life” (Yes, I bought this book too Rusa unicolor) are fascinating animals, powerful and impressive, they are the largest of the oriental deer, with some males reaching up to 160 cm to the shoulders and weight up to 320 kg, which is as large as some populations of red deer.
 
Here is an image with morphological data of this imposing animal:

This is the data of Chitwan, from animals captured by Dr Sunquist (1981):

Wow, that is a magnificent large sambar, as large as that photographed by Thapar in Ranthambore. Probably this male was of no less than 300 kg too, a great feat for this tigress, that doesn't look of more than 140 kg.

Many people underestimate Sambars, they think its just a deer.
But male sambars are very formidable animals like wildbeest and zebras.

No doubt Sambars are impressive, not only that they have impressive weaponry as well.
