Yes chital is one of the primary prey for the Tiger, Leopard and also Dholes in the area. The tiger density in this particular park is probably the highest in the world.

Excellent! I love to hear of multi-species interaction. It brings up the imagination, whether the deer discovered the natural salt lick ages ago and the monkeys became attracted to the deer activity or the other way around. (inter-species cooperation). Do the Tigers also hunt these areas? I know that they are becoming exceedingly rare, but it would make sense that the tigers would hunt where multiple prey species are gathered.

Thank you very much! The antler is that of a Chital deer, very common in the area. This apparently is a salt lick, deers often hang around with Langurs so its no surprise for me to see a deer antler out there.

Excellent Spotting. Also that appears to be a deer antler laying in front of the Langur, do you know what species of deer are in the area? It caught my eye as it seems out of place in the setting, quite a contrast to the focus of the picture. (subtlety makes the world of photography amazing)!
