The black buck is another common antelope of this region. Its other notable inhabitants are the desert fox,, wolf and desert cat. Bird life in this sandy habitat is vivid and spectacular. Birds such as the sandgrouse, partridges, bee-eaters larks and shrikes are commonly seen. Demoiselle crane and houbara arrive in the winter.

Handsome Black Bucks
The birds of prey seen here are tawny and steppe eagles long legged and honey buzzards, falcons and kestrels. But the most outstanding of the fauna is the great Indian bustard. This tall heavy bird is an epitome of confidence and grace. It is common to see five or six bustards near
Sudarshi water hole.18 kms. from Jaisalmer is the Akal Wood Fossils Park which is about 180 million years age. Sea shells and massive fossilized tree trunks in this park record the geological history of the desert.
