Sambar with a fawn

A sambar doe with a fawn. Sambars are one of the iconic representations of Indian wildlife. Here we can see Sambars coming near water bodies to quench their thirst. We can also see how mother Sambar keeps her young one close as the forest is home to mighty predators like tiger, leopard and wild dogs.
