D

E

Answer

Ghudkhur, Khur, Indian onager or the Indian Wild Ass is a subspecies of the onager which is native to Southern Asia. It is categorized as an endangered species of India. The specialty of this animal is that it is one of the fastest of Indian animals, with a speed of 70 – 80 km. per hour and thus it can easily outrun a jeep. Its habitat destruction due to salt activities is causing a decrease in its population.
So, the correct answer is 'Indian Wild Ass'.
