Twelve Horned Crown: This swamp deer 🦌 is also famously known as Barasingha “Twelve Horned”. However, I guess the one who named them such was bad at maths. You either have to count few invisible ones or skip some visible ones to get your maths right!
Few are left of this species and the distribution is very sporadic. It’s already close to extinction in the other three Asian countries that perhaps had everything for its population to flourish.
Its a beautiful creation of God and the Twelve + or – horns is a perfect Crown to boast of. Hope India does not disappoint them and their lineages thrives on this land.
