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.

For a while now i have been intending to create this one, a thread dedicated to sharing knowledge on wilderness landscapes , habitats & ecosystems.

By definition however, "Wildscape" means:
Habitat restoration and conservation for rural and urban areas. It enables you to contribute to wildlife conservation by developing wildlife habitats where they live, work and play.

The Ranthambore-Kailadevi landscape has vegetation that varies from deciduous-forest, to thorn-forest, to dry scrub & grassland. 

The greenery also varies from region to region.
Zone-6 has vast rolling grasslands due to its soil...

...while Zone-2 you will have to negotiate dense forests and narrow gullies, under the watchful eyes of the Ranthambhore Fort. 

Most of the hills are old igneous rocks & are plateaued at the top.

Down below, on the hill sides & valleys from where monsoon waters pass & recieved less of the scorching sun, there are dense forests.

The lakes are fertile old marshy areas where once wheat was farmed. After relocation is the villages they went back to their former wild glory.

To the Northwest lies the Kailadevi Sanctuary, but between them cuts though the Banas river, with few villages & farmlands herbivores raid often.

Banas forms a steep ravine at one place that tigers tiger use to pass through.

Nice initiative @Rishi, but i would ask you, landscapes and habitat that related to animals (like big cats, bears, wolves, etc.) or in general?

Ranthambore is small park but rich of different habitats. Whatever is the habitat everything in Indian state of Rajastan (mean "Land of the Kings") is special and "royal", the colors are brither and diferent than elsewhere in India, green is very green, blue is very blue, red is very red. Despite in Ranthambore there is no any mega-fauna (the tiger itself is the largest mammal along with nilgai) this is probably the most majestic and beatifull tiger reserve in India simply because is situated in Rajastan... It combines wilderness with historicaly heroic atmosphere of the ancient Medieval fort where Hindu knights - the Rajputs succeeded to stop for many months countless armies of the Mughal empire.

I don't know neither what to think about nor at what topic to insert it, but that makes me wonder:

Shaaz Jung : " There’s something inexplicably beautiful about the melancholic mist and how it transforms dawn into an eerie land of the lost. The paths may seem deceptively apparent and it’s destinations unknown, but don’t be afraid to wander in the mist, for he who walks the endless path shall find the greatest treasures.

Zhayynn James: " Ngorongoro is a lost world in every sense. It wasn’t discovered by outsiders till the late 1800’s. A giant extinct volcano that had collapsed in on itself, forming a massive caldera, where animals@lived and died without ever leaving the crater. I love shooting images like this that showcase the animals in their habitat, their world, images that tell a story. "

Diversity found in the province of Casanare in the Colombian Llanos. Here it's possible to witness the preservation of the environment combined with a rewilding process of ungulates who represent analogs to relatives of the Pleistocene, primarily horses. All credits go to Cunaguaro foundation and Lucia Cordoba Prieto:
