Utkrośa (उत्क्रोश) is a Sanskrit word referring either to the “sea eagle” or to the “trumpeter”. The meat of this animal is part of the māṃsavarga (‘group of flesh’), which is used throughout Āyurvedic literature. The animal Utkrośa is part of the sub-group named Ambucārin, refering to animals “which move on waters”. It was classified by Caraka in his Carakasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna (chapter 27), a classical Āyurvedic work. Caraka defined such groups (vargas) based on the dietic properties of the substance.(Source): Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
