Listed as a vulnerable species, the large mammal is primarily found in north-eastern India's Assam and in protected areas in the Terai of Nepal, where populations are confined to the riverine grasslands in the foothills of the Himalayas.

Habitat:

Found in the grasslands of the Pabitora Wild life Sanctuary in Guwahati, Assam, India.

Wonderful and precious spotting Biswajit De! A couple of tips for you:
- on project Noah we ask that in the Habitat field you describe the habitat where you saw your spotting, rather than provide generic habitat information (this can be provided in links under Reference or in the notes); see http://www.projectnoah.org/faq
- the Signs of Wildlife mission is for spottings such as tracks, nests, bones, etc, where the living organism itself isn't actually seen.
Thanks again for this wonderful sighting!
