An anthill in Sariska

Anthill in Sariska
While roaming around in Sariska (going through a animal sanctuary is only allowed in a vehicle on the main road), I witnessed a fair number of animals, which typically I would not have seen elsewhere. It set me to pondering about what is the actual significance things such as wildlife conservation, habitat protection, etc, have in our mind-share. Except for dedicated people, we never think about such things.
The photo above is of a fairly large anthill. Now, we may not think too much about anthills, but ants are animals that live in very organized societies, with their own rules and regulations. What struck me most was the fact that in an urban environment, we would never see an anthill of this size. If ever we did see one, it would be in an area that would have already been demarcated as run-down or not clean.

I found this information about
Wildlife Attractions in Sariska (from ads google).
Wildlife Sanctuary Sariska National Park is known for its tigers, its most popular resident. According to the latest available data, there are about 35 tigers at Sariska. Rajasthan is a pristine platform for viewing wildlife in the country because of its two national parks and over a dozen sanctuaries. Other wildlife in the park includes sambhar, chital, wild boar, hare, nilgai, civet, four-horned antelope, gaur (Indian bison) and porcupine.
