Periyar Inheritance

Nilgiri Tahr by Manoj Nair

The Nilgiri tahr Hemitragus hylocrius, a mountain goat that is endemic to the Western Ghats, used to enjoy a wider distribution in the reserve, including the hill slopes of Thannikudi and Varaiyattumottai. Right now only a small herd of around 20 animals is visible in Periyar, along the outer slopes of Mangaladevi, right next to the Gudalur range in Tamil Nadu’s Theni Forest Division.
