Apart from the glamorous tigers, Tadoba is also a home to a diversity of mammal species. Some of them include leopard, sloth bear, wild dog, and jungle cat. The prey base comprises of a strong population of herbivores like gaur, sambar, cheetal, nilgai, and barking deer. The Tadoba Lake is also home to a large number of Marsh Crocodile.
