Lion has more food at Gir, number of herbivores increasing
Population of herbivorous animals and peacocks has increased in the Gir forest area, as per a recent census. Gujarat Forest Department carries out such census every year. The herbivores here include black bucks, pigs, monkeys and nilgai. The peacock population has increased to 19,635 from 18,421, while that of monkeys and black bucks has increased from 8,501 to 8,837 and from 250 to 291 respectively, said Junagadh district forest official, Sandeep Kumar.
