America and are smaller than indian Gaur's.

southeast Asia. It hs been listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red list, since 986.
Gaur is the largest representative of the wild carte, Males weight between 600 and 1000 Kgs. They can reach 8 to
11 feet in length and from 5 to 7 feet at the height at shoulder. Females reach only 1/4 of the males size.
