There are 3 subspecies of gaur that can be found in Nepal and India, Thailand and Malaysia, and from Myanmar to China. The gaur that’s found in Nepal and India is called the Indian bison; the gaur that’s found in Thailand and Malaysia is called the Malaysian bison; and the gaur that’s found in Myanmar and China is called the South East Asian Bison.

They inhabit evergreen and deciduous forests, that are up to 6,000 feet in altitude. However, a massive amount of their habitat has been destroyed recently due to human population growth.

They’re herbivores, which means that they primarily eat plants. Their diet consists of grass, leaves, shoots and fruit. They’re diurnal, which means that they’re active during the day.

The gaur are mainly active early in the morning and late in the afternoon. However, in areas close to humans, they can change their normal routine and become nocturnal so that they can avoid human contact. Groups consist of one dominant male and female. They live in a matriarchate, which means that the group is led by a female leaders.
