    [ Outline ]
    A salt lick is a site where the soil contains high concentration of minerals such as calcium and sodium.
    Herbivorous animals ( such as deer, barking deer, gaur and elephant ) come to eat these numerals soil to supplement their mineral needs in their diet.

    These wild animals will only come to eat the soil during the night.
    It is very rare to see those animals during the day time.
