TDY - 052 - Forest foliage, Periyar sanctuary

Stock Image No: TDY 052
Forest foliage at Periyar sanctuary

There is probably no sanctuary in the world where elephant behavior can be watched in such absolute comfort, and safety because animals feel most comfortable and allow the closest approach by boat. A typical sight in Periyar are the darters and cormorants which bask on the remnant poles of the submerged forest, and allow tourist boats to approach to within yards of them without fear. Otters are a common sight, fishing in the shallow waters of the lake.
