About the place -

The Little Rann contains one of the country’s largest wildlife reserves, the Wild Ass Sanctuary, where the topography varies from large marshlands to brown-grey patches of soil with a few small thorny shrubs. The word 'rann' means “salty desert” and is spread out over 5,000sqkm. 
The Wild Ass Sanctuary is one of the few places to spot the ghudkar or Indian wild ass. Other species that one can spot here include the desert fox, jungle cat, desert cat, jackal, hyena, Nilgai and several species of resident and migratory birds including Flamingos, Ducks, Geese, Owls, Sand Grouse, Macqueens Bustard, Sykes Nightjars, Larks, Cranes (Domoiselle, Common and Saras) and Harrier etc. Since there are no bushes or trees for animals to hide behind, they are easy to spot during jeep safaris.
