Sambar (Deer)

SPECIES:
The Samber Deer (Mammalia > Cervidae > Rusa Unicolor)

DESCRIPTION:
The Sambar is a large deer native to southern and southeast Asia. Although it primarily refers to R. unicolor, the name "Sambar" is also sometimes used to refer to the Philippine Deer (called the Philippine Sambar) and the Rusa Deer (called the Sunda Sambar). The name is also spelled sambhar, sambur, or sambhur.

The Sambar attains a height of 102 to 160 cm (40 to 63 in) at the shoulder and may weigh as much as 546 kg (1200 pounds), though more typically 162–260 kg (357-574 pounds). The coat is dark brown with chestnut marks on the rump and underparts. The large, rugged antlers are typically rusine, the brow tines being simple and the beams forked at the tip. In some specimens the antlers exceed 101 cm (40 in). The species also has a small but dense mane.
 
LOCATION:
The Ranthambore National Park is one of the biggest and most renowned national parks in Northern India. It is located in southeastern Rajasthan, about 130 km from Jaipur and is spread over an area of 1,334 sq km along with the nearby Mansingh and Kaila Devi sanctuaries.
