The picture has been shared by IFS officer Parveen Kaswan via Twitter. In the picture, a family of Indian Bison are seen grazing grass in their natural habitat. However, two of them are seen looking right into the camera as they notice someone photographing them. They look quite angry, especially with their horns and chiselled body. One can also notice the baby Indian Bison in the background that is adorably following the clan. The Indian Bisons are surrounded by lush greenery around them. The caption also read, “Oh curious Gaur!! Family”.

Indian Bison 🦬 "Gaur" मेरी जानकारी में ये भारत में सबसे ज्यादा कोल्हापुर के पास राधानगरी अभ्यारण्य और कराड के पास सागरेश्वर अभ्यारण्य में पाए जाते है। महाराष्ट्र में इन्हें गवा रेडा के नाम से जाना जाता है, ये बहुत शक्तिशाली, पर सुंदर होते है।— Yatin NN (@yatinnalge) November 29, 2022

Maintain proper distance otherwise it could be lethal.” Watch the video below:
