    Nice sighting of two wolves in the open. Was there some more space on the top? I would have liked to remove some more space from the bottom and add more at the top to include the tree in the background fully. The grassland habitat looks nice. Thanks for sharing.

    Rare sighting. Good habitat image. Elevated forehead is very clear. Do they belong to a pair or the leader has organised 'operation hunting', can not say ! Thanks for sharing.SaktiWild

    Good to see a pair of wolves. How many did you sight? The role of predators in this grassland ecosystem is very important for the stability of the ecosystem. I hope these wolves are not persecuted in that area. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks Mrudul, Saktida, Sabya and Shymala for sharing your feedback and views.

    Mrudul, yes, it would have been better to get complete tree and the wolves more closer, i was too absorbed in getting a decent shot of wolves at the moment (it a heart racing moment as I was about to wrap off the trip when the sighting happed while on the return)

    Sakti sir, they were planning the hunt, the weaker was trying to scare off the young BBs towards the leader hidden in grass for making the kill, when they saw us and started their walkout.

    Sabya sir, I saw this pair only but had seen them in different moods and acts for about 15 mins till they walked beyond the WLS limits. I was told that they do not reside inside the protected area rather come in late afternoons for the kill (Nallamalla and Erramalla, both are in the striking distance). There are about 5 to 10 of them. Though the villagers do not like the WLS (they recently burned down a nest of Eurasian eagle owls along with eggs), looks like wolves are not killed by them yet. In fact wolf sightings are increasing.
