Common or Hanuman langur, the most widespread langurs of the Indian Subcontinent, is a large primate which is venerated by Hindus as a god. It is known for its unique association in the forest with the cheetal (or spotted deer), each warning the other of the approach of predators, mostly tigers and leopards.
Bandhavgarh National Park is one of the popular national parks in India located in the Umaria district of Madhya Pradesh, and it was declared a national park in 1968, with an area of 105 km². The buffer zone is spread over the forest divisions of Umaria and Katni and totals 437 km². This park has a large biodiversity. The density of the tiger population at Bandhavgarh is one of the highest known in India. The park has a large breeding population of leopards, and various species of deer.
The scratches on the bark of the tree is probably from a tiger or leopard.
