South Deccan Plateau dry deciduous forests

WWF Abstract

As you walk through this ecoregion, look high and low for its rare animals. You may hear the rufous babbler as it flits through the grasses, or an Indian bustard may dash by, a bird as big as a middle-school child. You'll have to look up to find the Salim Ali fruit bat. And be sure to watch out for Asia's largest land mammal, the Asian elephant.
