ASIATIC JACKAL ~ LEOPARD ~ ELEPHANT
Photographed in the wild at Bandhavgarh National Park, Madhya Pradesh, Central India, December 2016
Our first post on the wild animals of Bandhavgarh National Park was on February 11. If you wish to do so, you can click here to view the post and read about the featured langurs. As I'd written in that post, my daughter, son-in-law and grandson had traveled to Kolkata, India in December for vacation ~ one of the high points of their trip a tour-jeep safari of several days through the Bandhavgarh National Park in Central India. It was extraordinary in that they did see abundant wildlife, in their natural environment, not something one can ever be assured of when traveling in nature's homeland. The photographs posted earlier, and again today are their photographs which I have certainly enjoyed and hope you will as well. [Note: You may notice that mama elephant and her baby are chained, this is a temporary measure for protection until the baby is older and stronger and they can safely return to and roam freely in their natural habitat.]
Come back tomorrow if you can please, when we'll post a few more photographs of the Bandhavgarh wildlife and then join us on Wednesday to see the magnificent Bengal tiger. Thank you.
