The dense forests of Bhimashankar wildlife sanctuary plays host not just to 'Shekru' - the giant squirrel but also to a variety of plants and animal species. There are wild boars, barking deer, porcupines and even leopards. In monsoons one can spot bioluminescent fungus on the trees which gives a faint shimmering glow to the tree trunks in the darkness of night.
