A couple of weeks back I went to a resort near a canal with my family. Walking in the woods I spotted this animal, zoomed in the cam and took the picture. It ran away soon when I came more close. How many times have you come across this animal?
It is the Nilgai, is the largest Asian Antelope. The grown up males appear ox-like, hence also called BLUE BULLS. Blue is translated as “Nil” and Bull as “Gai” in Urdu, hence the term Nil Gai. It is mostly present in parts of eastern Pakistan, Southern Nepal and commonly seen in Central and Northern India where the estimated population is around 100,000. It also exists in the United States in Alabama & Texas.
Weighing in high as 600 lbs, males being larges than females, feeding mostly on grass, leaves etc.
