Daroji Bear Sanctuary, near Hampi in Karnataka, is the first bear sanctuary to be established in India. This rocky and dry terrain is home to a good population of Sloth Bears (Melursus ursinus), Indian Leopards, Indian Pangolins and a host of birds and reptiles. They feed on termites, honey bee colonies and fruits. They make a very loud huffing sound when they feed.

This Sloth Bear had taken a break from its feast, when the Indian Peafowl (Pavo cristatus) walked into the frame behind the bear.
