Wildlife in Sasan Gir:

Asiatic lions:

Many tourists all around the world come to Sasan Gir to watch Asiatic lions wondering in open habitat. There was a time when the number of lions in Gir forest was declining. However, several govt. and private agencies have taken initiatives to increase the breeding of lions. The asiatic lions are known as "Sher" among the local people. They weigh around 120-220 kilograms and have the ability to run at a speed of 65-70 kilometer per hour to catch deer or sambar. After killing and eating a deer or Sambar, it doesn't attack any animal for two or three days. The wild animal has a capacity to stay five to six days without eating any food.

Wild cats:

Apart from Asiatic lions there are several other species of cats present in Gir National Forest Park. The leaopards are the most common wild cats present there. Leopards are well known for their swift running talent. They can easily catch fast running deer or antelope by running behind them. They are generally nocturnal and prefer to hunt during night. Apart from the leopard, there are some other species of cats that hide in the bushes during daytime and start hunting at night.

Antelope and deer:

Antelopes and deer are common prey of Asiatic lions and cats living in the Gir national forest. Chausingha is one of the mostly seen antelope in Gir Park. It is a rare animal and only species of four horned antelope found all around the world. They prefer to stay nearby rivers or other water resources. This is the reason most of the leopards and lions are found in the bank of river in the forest. Chinkara is another species of wild life present in Gir Park. The most interesting feature about this antelope is that both the male and females are found with horns on their head.
