This blog is just about everything under the sun.
It is really my diary....I jot out events that leave
a lasting impression on me. It could be anything; relationships, business, culture...writing provides me a release from everyday stress and I take refuge in it very often. It gives me a lot of pleasure.
It was our 2nd last day at Tadoba National forest, and we decided to do the buffer zone for the morning safari (We found out that the biggest male tiger in India, Wagdoh, had been sighted in the buffer zone the previous day)
Cancelling the regular safari and deciding to do the buffer zone that morning was perhaps the best decision we made!
Not only did we see the Wagdoh male tiger, we sighted two sloth bears! While the first one (in the picture below) was quite a distance away and disappeared into the forest when we tried to get a closer look, and therefore we did not get a chance to take any pictures:( the 2nd one was just perfect!
We got enough time to take pictures and get a good look at the bear before it disappeared. There is also a video clipping of the Sloth Bear at the end of this post, if you want to see it a little more of it.
The first sloth bear, just caught a glimpse before it disappeared!
Tadoba National Forest
This post is in continuation to my last post on my recent visit to Tadoba National Forest. I have never seen a leopard in any of the forests that I have visited so far. This was my first sighting of a leopard and I was thrilled to see the Leopard from such close quarters!
We were waiting near a water body in the Tadoba National Park for quite some time (around 45 min), we kept hearing the warning calls and therefore kept waiting, and we thought a tiger was headed our way. After some time the calls stopped, and for a long time after that it was all quiet.
Just when we were giving up hope, we started hearing the warning calls again, and then suddenly we saw this Leopard emerge out of the forest and head straight to the water body to quench its thirst!
