    Default Sambar Deer Alarm Call....Sariska

    We were about to complete our morning safari at Sariska, and were reaching the Tehla Gate, and saw a Sambar Deer standing by the side of the mud road.Unusually for the Sambar,it did not move away from the approaching vehicle.We passed it and stopped.It was looking at a steep hill by the side of the road and was shivering profusely.I have never seen a Deer shiver so much in trepidation.It was making the alarm calls and then bounded off.We thought there might be a Leopard up the hill but did not see any.

    Regards

    Unmistakable sound in the jungle testifying to the presence of a tiger or leopard on move. We all, whether a guide or a tourist, keep our ears open for this audio signal.
    Nice recording.
    Thanks for sharing. SaktiWild

    Nice and clear record. Agree with Saktida, a sound to alert you that a predator is on the move. Thanks for sharing.

    Did you record using your phone? I remember an alarm call that a Sambar made in the night in Similipal. It was sharp and can give a heart attack to a person who is not familiar with the sounds of the jungle. I only wish that visitors remain tightlipped during the Safari and not talk and ruin the atmosphere. Generally foreign tourists are well behaved than Indian ones. Wonder why? Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
