Living in the Fragments !
Life in Anamalai’s ! With the last few fragments of the rainforest remaining , the giants who lost most of their habitat are forced to search food in the tea and coffee plantations. Here is the family grazing in a tea plantation on an fine evening. I was lucky enough to spend almost 30 mins with this family before they vanished to the next side of the hill. These both females where little bit cautious about our presence and often seen raising their trunk in the air sensing our presence. We didn’t get that initially ! Only Last few minutes of light remaining, a cracker sound from nowhere made the family alert and they started rushing. Only then we were able to see the calf which was so tiny, not even taller than the tea bush !
