nilgai the blue bull, highlights of jungles

Name Saves a Species

What's in a name? Well, sometimes it can make the difference between survival and extinction. Its name similar to the sacred cow has saved the nilgai from hunters. Largest of the four Indian antelopes, the nilgai is horse-like in appearance and a bull's ungainly gallops can match a horse's speed. The bull has a goat-like beard and horns while the female has none. The bluish tinge to the bull's dark coat gives the nilgai its other name - 'blue bull'.
