The vegetation changed perceptibly as we went deeper into the jungle. I saw many rare and endangered wild flowers ,I will be posting the pictures soon. Many of us got bitten by leeches, but fortunately, they (the leeches ) left me alone.
The leeches seemed to have a great attraction for the shapely leg of my friend Pratibha! This fellow fell off after drinking its fill. Even after the leech falls off, the small wound will be bleeding for some time because the leeches use an anti coagulant so that the blood doesn't form a clot.
This is the forest in which we saw the fresh pug marks of the tiger. Our guide was more worried about the elephants which he could smell. At one point, he almost asked us to turn back, but then we saw this langur in a clearing. The langur's demeanor told our guide that the elephants were moving away. So we continued on our trek.
The Indian Langur, or the Hanuman Langur Semnopithecus entellus is an Old World primate. He has a long tail and long limbs. He jumps amazing distances on treetops. The langur has a special relationship with the deer. From the treetops he sees the predators and warns the grazing deer. The deer have a good sense of smell, so they warn the langur when he is on the ground.
