The desert state of India, Rajasthan ironically is very vibrant with its fauna. Also known as the land of kings, Rajasthan offers spacious environs for the wild to roam around carelessly in their natural habitat. Offering a large diversity in the landscape, the state makes it easy for its ecosystem to survive together in the extremes. Ranging from the dry arid lands to lush green swamps, the state proudly lays claim to two National Parks, over a dozen Sanctuaries and two Closed Areas.
The landscape of Rajasthan broadly varies from the infertile arid wilderness, dense scrub-thorn woods, rocks and gorges to swamps and lush, very thick grassy woodlands. And each of these huge parts is a beautiful home for a big diversity of amazing endangered beasts and bird life. Some of them rare while some seriously scarce. The state houses tigers, black bucks, chinkara, the sporadic desert fox, the greatly threatened caracal, the great Indian bustard, gavial, monitor lizard, wild boars, and porcupine. Exotic traveling birds like the common crane, ducks, coots, pelicans and the rare Siberian cranes, imperial sand grouse, falcons, buzzards herd to this land throughout the bitter chilly winter months.
