Gaur (Bos gaurus)

Indian gaur
   The gaur is a wild ox erroneously called by sportsmen "Indian bison," distributed throughout the forest regions of India and Burma. It has never been domesticated, except to a very limited extent by certain hill tribes. The color of the gaur  is dark, almost black. and there is a high convex ridge on the forehead between the horns. A full-grown bull may stand six feet at the withers, but owing to the slope of the back, the loins are much lower. There is no dewlap. and the ears are large. The gaur, Bos gaurus, is found in large herds, and is exceedingly shy and likely to be extremely fierce and dangerous when brought to bay or wounded—a fact especially true of the Malayan variety of the gaur called "sladang."
