MUGGER- India's last living dinosaur.
Once ruled many Indian rivers now threatened due to development, poaching, pollution by humans.
One of my Friend @kapil_koltharkar had posted some pics of this creature on Instagram. I was surprised by saying myself are they so easily available for camera and also was equally shocked to see how big they known to get, easily they can easily bring down a fully grown Water Buffalo.His photos were excellent to drive any nature enthusiast to that place. He arranged me a local nature enthusiast @limbukar_munna who was my guide and gradually we became best of friends. Excited to see this creature we headed to Temple lake to photograph Crocs but unfortunately we didn't anything there. From there we left to Guhagarh.The moment we entered I was in cloud nine, there we 5 to 6 crocs together. I got couple of good shots but a photographer never gets satisfied easily. So I went a closer for good ones. The moment they realised I am close, one by one they jumped into the water. In disguise I looked looked straight ahead in a hope to see some more. To my surprise I saw a fully grown MUGGER croc sun bathing at a big burrow. It looked like a mannequin as it was covered completely by mud all over.But something made me upset was presence high quantity of plastic bottles which surrounded this giant. Just imagine an animal which lived millions of years since the age of dinosaur had to take unnecessary shit from we humans in form of plastics. Though they are not on verge of extinct but they will be if this continues. Our government emphasize so much on conservation but are they really doing their job. My request to all share this image with each everyone so that this Dinosaur will survive also next million years.
Thank You 😊.

The mandarin duck (Aix galericulata) is a perching duck species found in East Asia. It is medium-sized, at 41–49 cm (16–19 in) long with a 65–75 cm (26–30 in) wingspan. It is closely related to the North American wood duck, the only other member of the genus Aix. Aix is an Ancient Greek word which was used by Aristotle to refer to an unknown diving bird, and galericulata is the Latin for a wig, derived from galerum, a cap or bonnet.

The brahminy kite (Haliastur indus), also known as the red-backed sea-eagle in Australia, is a medium-sized bird of prey in the family Accipitridae, which also includes many other diurnal raptors, such as eagles, buzzards, and harriers. They are found in the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and Australia. They are found mainly on the coast and in inland wetlands where they feed on dead fish and other prey. Adults have a reddish-brown plumage and a contrasting white head and breast which makes them easy to distinguish from other birds of prey.

The brahminy kite is distinctive and contrastingly coloured, with chestnut plumage except for the white head and breast and black wing tips. The juveniles are browner, but can be distinguished from both the resident and migratory races of black kites in Asia by the paler appearance, shorter wings, and rounded tail. The pale patch on the underwing carpal region is of a squarish shape and separated from Buteo buzzards.

The brahminy kite is about the same size as the black kite (Milvus migrans) and has a typical kite flight, with wings angled, but its tail is rounded unlike the Milvus species, red kite, and black kite, which have forked tails.[2] The two genera are however very close.[3]
The call is a mewing keeyew.
