Dijo Thomas, Scientist / Conservationist / Environment Protection Activist / Wildlife Researcher, have Found a NEW Species, Neelagiri Kaduva [new name given to Patti Kaduva], which is as Big as Tiger & Critically Endangered; in Neyyar Dam, Kerala, [& 12+ other places] in India

     
 

:: Neelagiri Kaduva, the NEW Species Discovered by Dijo Thomas - Details

 

Neelagiri Kaduva { Neelagiri Tiger = Tiger of the Blue Mountains }


Neelagiri Kaduva, at first sight, looks roughly like a Leopard, with the size of a Tiger.

It is Reddish Brown in colour.

The Neelagiri Kaduva has the face of a Dog. It has stripes like a Tiger, [but vauge], with the face of a dog – hence the name "Patti Kaduva" – meaning “DogTiger”. It also has dots on its body, making ordinary people mistake it for a Leopard. [To know the nature of stripes & dots, please see the pic of the Cub of NeelagiriKaduva Killed in Neyyar Dam on 02 Oct 2014.

Photographs: Do not exist. Pic of the Cub of NeelagiriKaduva Killed in Neyyar Dam exists.

Discovered & Scientifically Proved by: Dijo Thomas

Scientifically Proved using: Facts, Features, Factors etc. Based - New Species Scientifically Proving Method {F3B-NSPM }

Scientific Paper Presentation: Dijo Thomas presented Scientific Paper on NeelagiriKaduva, the NEW Species Found by him in 103rd Indian Science Congress; held at University of Mysore on 07 Jan 2016 & an updated paper in 104th Indian Science Congress; held at SV University, Tirupathi in Jan 2017

Total Confirmed Population in first 2 discoveries: 2 [in Thiruvantahapuram] + 3 [in Thrissur]= 5.

Approx. population strength is 30 - 50 numbers in 12+ other places in Kerala, Tamil Nadu & Karnataka.

Population: NeelagiriKaduva is the Rarest Species in the whole world , with a confirmed population [by Dijo Thomas] of initial 4 {now only 2 adults remaining (possibly) (as 2 cubs were killed by local people on two different occasions)}, highest probability of 40 and maximum possibility of only 40-70 in the whole world!

Conservation Status: Critically Endangered [it can be considered, not even ‘Critically Endangered’, but an ‘Extinct Species’, for all practical purposes]

Sound: It growls when angry. { Dijo Thomas has heard it personally in Neyyar Dam Thiruvantahapuram Dist., & in Attappadi, Palakkad Dist, in 2016 January}

Main Prey: Dogs { Dijo Thomas says that it may eat other members of Dog Family like Doles, Hyena, wolves etc., but only the first exists in the same geographical location as NK in Kerala.} Goats, Cows, Chicken, Rabbit etc. { Dijo Thomas says that it also eats deer, pigs, sambar deer, wild goats etc. in the wild}

The main prey of NeelagiriKaduva are dogs. It usually is very shy of humans & stays hidden in forests. They come to human settlements near forests very rarely, mostly to hunt dogs. Unlike Leopards, they do not normally attack humans.

The most interesting feature that fascinated me no ends; was that after attacking a dog it will put it on its shoulder and carry the kill to the forests. There, far away from human settlement only it will eat them.

Size: The NEW Species is as Big as a Tiger. The Female is smaller, only 3/4th of the male. {Both were confirmed by Dijo Thomas through Eye witness accounts & Pug Mark size}

Pug Mark Size: 12 cm. [A fully grown adult Tiger's Pug Mark Size: 9 - 14 cm in India]

Colloquial Names: Patti Kaduva, Naai Puli, Patti Puli. Kattan Puli, Naai Kottan, Naai Nari, etc in Kerala.

Naai Puli, Nari etc. in TN

Naai Huli, Madka etc. in Karnataka

Range:

Area: Approx. 10, 000 sq. Km.

High Migratory nature: Neelagiri Kaduva has High Migratory nature. Its range extends from aprox 100 to 200 Kms in Length.

Neelagiri Kaduva do NOT attack Human beings.

Neelagiri Kaduva is not at all afraid of Human beings.

1. First Discovery of NeelagiriKaduva by Dijo Thomas - Neyyar Dam Thiruvantahapuram Dist., Kerala, India

Date of Discovery :: 25 Sep 2014

Neelagiri Kaduva killed & ate Goats, Dogs, Rabbits, Chicken etc. It killed cats, but did not eat them.

The attack continued for around 15 days.

Pug Mark Size: 9 cm

Eyewitness: More than 25 persons, at different occations, had seen it. Of them, four of them saw it in board day light. Two of them at noon at different places. A husband and wife at 6.15 pm less than 50 meters from their house.

[I have testimonies of some of them on record.]

2. Second Discovery of NeelagiriKaduva by Dijo Thomas - Kanjani, Thrissur Dist., Kerala India

Date of Discovery :: 08 March 2016

NeelagiriKaduva killed & ate Goats, Dogs, Chicken etc. It killed cats, but did not eat them.

The attack continued for around 2 months. I camped in Kanjani, during those 2 months, trying to get its Pictures.

Pug Mark Size: 12 cm

Eyewitness: More than 18+ persons at different occations had seen it. Of them, 3 saw it in board day light. [I have testimonies of some of them on record.].

My Team & Myself had narrowly missed it many times in Kanjani, during those 2 months. As we were searching for NeelagiriKaduva [NK] using a torch in night, they sense us much before we are able to see them, & they move way.

We were even able to smell it more than 3 times. NeelagiriKaduva has a smell similar to that of a Tiger, but more intense.

More than another 100 + persons have seen it in the past 15 years, before 2016, in Kanjani-Engandiyoor-Kunnamkulam belt of Thrissur Dist.

More than another 50 + persons have seen it after May 2016, in Kanjani-Engandiyoor-Kunnamkulam belt of Thrissur Dist.

Dijo Thomas has Discovered Neelagiri Kaduva in more than 12 places in in Kerala, Tamil Nadu & Karnataka in India.

F3B-NSPM {Facts, Features, Factors etc. Based - New Species Scientifically Proving Method}
The Scientific Method devised by Mr. Dijo Thomas in Sep 2014 to prove that the Unknown Mysterious Animal attacking in Neyyar Dam is a New Species!

In Neyyar dam, due to various factors, conventional way of identifying a New Species was not possible. Like ...

1. There was no direct sighting by Mr. Dijo Thomas. 2. There were no photographs taken. 3. People in their fear were not able to observe all the important features. 4. All people who saw it thought that it was a Leopard [shows its similarity to Leopard] 5. There are no previously recorded data regarding PattiKaduva. Etc. ……..…....


Therefore Mr. Dijo Thomas uses a Novel method devised by himself, for the first time in the World, named F3B-NSPM {Facts, Features, Factors etc. Based - New Species Scientifically Proving Method} ; to prove that the animal attacking there is a New Species!

Latest Reports: {After I confirmed that NeelagiriKaduva was behind Neyyar Dam Attacks}

Large Scale Elephant Poaching in Kerala Forests by Chief Wildlife Warden G. Harikumar of Kerala Forest Department
 
 

 

C. B. I Probe & Immediate Dismissal from Kerala Forest DepartmentRequested by Dijo Thomas & Environmental Activists

 
 

 

As Chief Wildlife Warden G. Harikumar is totally Against Conservation, he should be removed from the post & Dismissed from Kerala Forest Department - Environmental Activists

1. Elephant Poaching Case

The role of Chief Wildlife Warden G. Harikumar, second in Kerala Forest Department hirarchy, & directly in charge of Wildlife, in Elephant Poaching case is a suspect. It is not possible for the poachers to hunt elephants in such a large scale, without active support from somebody high in Kerala Forest Department. Mr. N. A Naseer Photographer & Wildlife Enthusiast, & other sources have confirmed that more than 286 wild Elephants were killed. If not directly involved, the killing in large numbers of Elephants is a big failure on the part of CWW. He should have quit long before on moral grounds. His inefficiency, which led to the biggest elephant poaching in history of mankind, is another issue.

A Poaching of this magnitude could not have taken place without knowledge of Chief Wildlife Warden G. Harikumar.

a. A DFO or Range Officer may assist the poachers, but as the poaching took place all over Kerala, it occured under many DFOs & Range Officers. It is impossible for all of them to be corrupt.

b. Any case of Elephant / Tiger Poaching should be reported to Chief Wildlife Warden G. Harikumar, which is mandatory by Law. Therefore most of the cases woulh have been reported to Chief Wildlife Warden G. Harikumar.

c. Eventhough poaching took place for more than 1 year & 286 wild Elephants were killed, NOT even a Single case was registered. Till Media reported these, when a poacher himself approaced media. Such huge Cover-Up could not have taken place without the orders of Chief Wildlife Warden G. Harikumar.

d. Chief Wildlife Warden G. Harikumar would not have done that without being a part of the Poaching Racket & without getting a cut of it.

e. Chief Wildlife Warden G. Harikumar also under Vigelance probe in taking huge bribes regarding the seizeing of Poached Tusks from the house of a Film actor in Kerala.

2. Conservation of NeelagiriKaduva

The person who is responsible to protect the Wildlife in Kerala, & who draws people's money for the same, Chief Wildlife Warden G. Harikumar, is the one who is opposing the Conservation of NeelagiriKaduva. Though PCCF Biodiversity had promised permission to search the Forests to take pictures of NeelagiriKaduva, many times, it was Harikumar who was blocking it. As it is a purposeful & deliberate action on his part, his action amounts to something much worse than that of the poachers.

As he has committed multiple offences of grave nature, he should be immediately removed from office, dismissed & other necessary punitive actions should be taken..

What Prominent people Promised & What they actually did to Protect & Save the NEW Species?!
 
  Here we can see what the real attitude of a person is, who makes tall claims of protecting environment!  
 

Shashi Tharoor:

As the MP of Neyyar Dam area, Thiruvananthapuram, I approached him save the NEW Species.

He promised me that he would get me Sponsorship from US & that he would do everything to save the NEW Species.

I sent him 2 e-mails with all the details. I got his reply that the "NEW Species is not listed Anywhere else & there are no records of it. There are no records of it even in the Colonial Era!"

WOW & WOW!

That was more than what I bargained for!

1. If it were already listed, would I call it a NEW Species!!

2. Subconsciously, he believes that anything western is better than Indian & that Colonial India is superior to the present India (sic) !

 
     
 
More people whom I had approached - those who have helped this cause & those who have not will be added here soon.
 


 
     

I want to save the remaining few Patti Kaduvas before it is killed by Local people.

Probably around 10 Patti Kaduvas are left in the whole world.

Need your urgent help to save the remaining few Patti Kaduvas, which has come back from extintion.
