Gujarat is as famous for its large wild ass herds as it is for its lions. To protect these rare animals, a sanctuary covering an area of over 4,953 sq. kms. was created to offer protection to more than 2,100 wild asses inhabiting this area. In the Little Rann of Kachchh, the asses are attracted by the flat green grass covered expanse known as bets (islands where coarse grasses springs up during the monsoon).
