Only deers we saw

The whole Bhimashanker seems to be a wild life sanctuary. We could see few deer and one Sambar deer on our way to hotel. When I asked the driver to show 'Shekru' a type of squirrel, he told he will catch few and give them to me. But he will be in jail forever for catching it! There are lots of trails in the forest. Small streams flowing downhill. New kinds of birds flying above. Wild flowers and dry flowers were seen along the trails.
