April 2023 - Week 2 Roundup


Spotted Deer

Sighted on: 10.Apr.2023

During the 10th evening safari, we encountered an interesting sight - a Spotted Deer stag with strange-looking antlers. I was at a loss for words, and after my return to the resort, I did some research to find out more. It seems that it was due to "The presence of calcified cartilage remnants in the distal antler portions is attributed to the limited antler lifespan of only a few months, which is also the reason for the virtual lack of bone remodelling in antlers. The calcified cartilage matrix was more highly mineralized than the antler bone matrix." As they rightly say, every safari is a learning experience.

During the 12th evening safari, I was fortunate to spot this magnificent leopard sitting perfectly camouflaged on a tree. Initially, it was challenging for our guests to sight the leopard, but after some prompting and helpful pointers, they could finally locate him. A memorable day for all of us and a perfect example of how well-camouflaged leopards can be.

Striped Lynx Spider

Sighted on: 14.Apr.2023

We ran into this beauty during the Nature Walk. The Striped Lynx Spider (Oxyopes salticus) is a species of lynx spider first described by Hentz in 1845. Its habitat tends to be grasses and leafy vegetation, weedy fields, and row crops.
