Twin sloth bears Melursus ursinus quench their thirst at a waterhole in the Barnawapara Wildlife Sanctuary. The beautiful 244 sq. km. park, which once used to harbour healthy populations of Asiatic wild buffalos Bubalus arnee and tigers Panthera tigris, now enthralls visitors with sightings of Indian leopards Panthera pardus fusca, sloth bears and gaur Bos gaurus.
