Dear Yazdy ji,

In my locality, we come across Terminalia Bellarica  tree which are around 40-50 feet high ( semi deciduous habitat). In forests they reach amazing heights 40 meters. When this tree fruits (Nov) one can spot many wild animals around.

I do know if others have remarked on it but when the flowers open in the evening, there is a sweet honey scent around noticeable even by humans. I have noticed the nice scent in Chennai as also in the Wynad forests around summer time. The nuts are used in tanning of skin to convert it to leather though the myrobolan nut is better apart from their ayurvedic prop. well known. Fallen/ripe nuts are taken as minor forest produce.

Dear Raghu Ji,
Thank you for the information as well as for sending me those links.
Oh! yes they do grow to very great heights, we have a couple of them
at our place. Some of them with large cavities that harbour flying
squirrels. The fruits really attract a lot of animals including our
cows. Quite often where people cultivate ginger and use cattle manure
find that plenty of these seeds sprout. The seeds have passed through
the guts of these animals and come out fortified.
Besides these we quite often find the fruit being eaten by the malabar
squirrels hanging with their head down and holding the nuts in their
front paws chewing away to glory.
Regards
Yazdy.
