Apart from the tiger, one can find a variety of wild animals in the park including leopard, sambhar, chital, nilgai, four-horned antelope, wild boar, rhesus macaque, langur, hyena and jungle cats. The park boasts of being home to India’s largest population of peafowl, harbours quail, sand grouse, golden- backed woodpeckers and crested serpent eagles.
