This particular day we spent almost 7 hours with this #lion called Bob Marley (notice the dreads under his mane). He would get up every 20 minutes or so and dig the burrow deeper. We had to be ready throughout as the warthog in the burrow could dash out any moment. 2/4
It was coming to the end of the day and we were almost losing hope when it started raining heavy. Bob Marley used this to his advantage as the burrow filled with water and he started splashing the water inside the burrow which confused the #warthogs and made them rush out. 3/4

Day 2 ‚Äď Squeals return to the tall wet #grasslands of #Assam !!!
Pygmy Hog is the tiniest, rarest and the most #endangered of all wild #pigs globally. In fact, phylogenetic analysis of the pygmy hog revealed that it belongs to a separate genus, Porcula. It is evolutionarily unique and completely different from #boars, #warthogs, and pigs.
Known to once thrive in the lush tall and wet grassland plains of the sub #Himalayas, they were feared to be extinct in the 1960's but were ‚Äúrediscovered‚ÄĚ in the year 1971.
