Freshwater ๐Ÿฆ€! Generally they feeds on whatever present in their surroundings and rarely feeds selective at some stage during their life cycle.
At Uttarakhand we don't eat crabs we let them grow because most of the residence here are brahmins(specialising as priests, teachers (acharya) and protectors of sacred learning across generations) EXCEPT ME. ๐Ÿค—

Hello from my beloved Uttarakhand ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ
.
.
Travelling in rural, remote parts of this state never cease to remind me that we need so little to feel content with life - fresh air, spring water, genuine conversations, slow days, moments that take our breath away. .
.
Been hanging out in the Garhwal Himalayas with @greenpeopleind all week...away from connectivity, electricity and civilisation as we know it. Blissful ๐Ÿ’š

The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, instead of thinking how things may be, to see as they are.

A major peak of the Garhwal Himalaya, Mt. Neelkanth stands at 6507m. It is a pyramidical-shaped peak that is popularly known as the 'Garhwal Queen'. This snow-clad mountain peak rising just above the Badrinath Temple is indeed one of the most stunning summits in the Garhwal Himalaya. The Satopanth Glacier is on the northwest side of Neelkanth, the Panpatia Glacier remains on the southwest side.

Neel meaning Blue and Kanth meaning throat, it is one of the many name of lord shiva, One of the most revered hindu deity. According to legends, there used to be no Neelkath mountain earlier. A route would connect the temples of Kedarnath and Badrinath. However, due to the sins committed by priest, Lord Shiva was displeased and erected a sky high mountain between the two temples.

'Creating' a 'personality' is not what I dream of, 'erasing' it is what lures me.

Kashmir Rock Agamaย (Laudakia tuberculata)

No other creature enjoys the sunshine more flamboyantly than theย Kashmir Rock Agama. As the rocks warm up and heat waves distort the horizon, they arrive like tourists to a beach, falling over each other as they squabble for the best spot to soak up the sun. Like all reptiles, they are โ€œcold-bloodedโ€, in that they have limited physiological resources to maintain a constant body temperature essential for metabolism. Therefore, they depend on external sources for warmth, and the sun is the best source of it.

Their slate-grey bodies, which offer a fitting camouflage among the blue-green chips of rock, liven up with activated pigments. The Kashmir Rock Agama occurs commonly at lower elevations in the Western Himalayas, which includes mountainous regions in northern Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Kashmir. Outside of India, they occur in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
