The Little Rann of Kutch is home to the Indian wild ass (khur). The 4950 square kilometres (sq. km) “Little” Rann of Kutch is a salty desert in western India’s Kutch Peninsula that is characterized by enormous salt pans, shrubby islands, seasonal nullahs, marshes, and rocky hillocks or Dungars of volcanic origin. Originally, the Arabian Sea encompassed this unusual landscape. Geological causes caused the area to become isolated from the ocean, resulting in a huge, featureless plain covered in salt that is submerged by water during monsoon rains.
