Wildlife at Nagarahole
The Nagarahole ecosystem supports the highest density of herbivores anywhere in south-east Asia. Large herbivores found in the park are Muntjac, Chital, Sambar, Four-horned Antelope, Gaur, Wild Pig, Asian Elephant, Common Langur and the Bonnet Macaque. The density of herbivores in Nagarahole, rivals that of the Masai Mara in Africa when taken on a per sq kilometer basis. Because the availability of prey is not a limiting resource, selective predation has facilitated large carnivore co-existence in the park and the predominant large predators found here are the Tigers, Leopards and Wild Dogs.
