Wildlife in Kerala


Our wildlife has, for centuries, attracted zoologists who have come across a wide variety of rare and indigenous species across the Kerala landscape. Many have indeed compared Kerala to the Garden of Eden with the number of unique species that seem to have thrived on this terrain. Kerala's unique geographical features have, for long, contributed to this as the equable climate and mountainous ranges, alongside a wide coastline and many interspersed lakes that are scattered across the State, provide a safe haven for the many species and have given them the opportunity to evolve over the ages. We now provide you with high resolution pictures of our beautiful wildlife, ranging from the exotic Nilgiri Tahr to the majestic Indian Elephant. These will give you an idea of what our forests have in store for you. Glimpses of these beings are to be truly cherished.
