The gaur (Bos gaurus), also called Indian bison, is the largest extant bovine, native to South Asia and Southeast Asia. The gaur is the tallest species of wild cattle. The Malayan gaur is called seladang, and the Burmese gaur is called pyoung. The domesticated form of the gaur is called gayal (Bos frontalis) or mithun. Gaur historically occurred throughout mainland South and Southeast Asia, including Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Peninsular Malaysia, Myanmar, India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China and Nepal. Today, the range of the species is seriously fragmented, and it is regionally extinct in Sri Lanka.
