That the Gaur has been domesticated in northeastern India and Burma for work and meat?
The Gaur is a larger bovine, with a big head, a big body and robust limbs. On their shoulders, the Gaur has a surprisingly muscular ridge that slopes down to the middle of the back, which ends in a sharp drop.
The head to body length is 260-330 cm, while shoulder height is 160-210. The Gaur weighs 600-1000 kg.
The Bos gaurus has a coat that is short and glossy. In adults, especially males, are almost bare, except on the head, chest, belly and lower legs. The color is dark brown. In old males, they tend to be jet black, while females tend to red, with white socks from wrist to heel.
The curve of the horns is upward and backward. They are creamy yellow with black tips, with a shaggy crest different between the horns. Females are about 10 cm shorter in height, 150 kg lighter and the horns are less strong.
