Beyond Big Game: Lesser Known Stars on an Indian Safari
On safari, or for that matter, on a wildlife expedition of any kind, most of us tend to seek out the big, beautiful, glamorous species dubbed “charismatic megafauna.” Polar bears, lions and elephants are undoubtedly star attractions we thrill to encounter. But is it essential that an animal must be large to be captivating? Does it have to be big to be beautiful? And must the most attractive species always, in fact, be mammals? Expedition Leader Aditya Panda begs to differ! Join him to meet some lesser-known standouts that equally deserve our attention on an Indian safari. Among those featured are mammals, birds and reptiles that are often overlooked in the quest to spy tigers, rhinos and leopards...but shouldn’t be! Find out why these creatures are so fascinating, and why you’ll definitely be keen to pursue them through your binoculars or camera lens when you’re on a wildlife quest in the jungles of the subcontinent. Our virtual journey includes a foray into four Indian national parks. Come along and be surprised!
