Sanctuary Asia's Wild Maharashtra

SANCTUARY’S WILD MAHARASHTRA, NITIN PRABHUDESAI

The rain shadow areas in the western, central and eastern regions of Maharashtra still harbor some pristine semi-arid grasslands. The central Indian semi-arid grasslands are of the Sehima- Dichanthium type, which includes 24 species of perennial grasses along with 89 species of annual grasses. Prime species found here include the Great Indian Bustard, Lesser Florican, blackbuck, jungle cat, Bengal fox, grey wolf and the golden jackal. Among the more timid species that inhabit the wild grasslands of Maharashtra, these silhouetted chinkara avoid human habitation as far as possible.
