  1. hi vivek I am gujarati but i have lived mostly abroad making my mother tongue a little weak. Recently i heard stories from my mother side relatives about some creature called ( VANIYAAR or VANIYAR ) they use to roam around in domestic areas of Ahmedabad city. They only use to come out in the night. It is rumored that they use to attack small new born babies. They are Black colored with long funnel shape (fox) like creature. As far as the relatives said they look like cats. Now they have disappeared or had gotten extinct…. No idea…. but its like no body has seen them in years now…..One of my relative said they are neither classified into wild cats nor a monkey or a fox species…something which were a mix breed….they usually climb through pipes of the building and jump around from building to building….Is it possible for you to give me this creatures English name….

    Hey Sherryl,

    I came across this website while searching for an answer myself. I haven’t been very sucessful yest, but I think I can help you with your question.

    Cheetah – Chitto (Gujarati)
    Lepord – Dipdo (singular) Dipda (plural)
    Tiger – Vagh

    Hope this will help.

    My story and question is exactly the same as Shaurya’s. There are no replies to that question and I would really like to know this.


    1. “ghorkhodiyu” = “Ratel” in english. and you will easily find its images on google by just typing its english name

    2. and you will surprise to know but it is very simmilar to “noliyo” in gujarati. they are not exactly the same but same subspecis and is also known as “Honey Badger”.
