Did you know?

While the Indian leopard is now a vulnerable species, 19th-century hunters would not have worried about sustaining its population.


Elaborate big game hunts were a prestigious pastime for the Indians and colonials under the British Raj. This trophy has been laid out for the camera so that its sharp teeth and long tail are visible.
