The Indian Gaur was completed on 3.26.2013. I've recently completed a massive project - drawing all the official animals of the United States - so I'm trying to complete some drawings that have more of an international flare. Someone from the Facebook Fan page request I put together a collection of animals from Bangladesh. While I had a few of them, I wanted to add some of the more iconic fauna from that area of the world. The dramatic and power powerful looking Gaur seemed like a good choice! The drawing is based on a photo by Valerie Abbot.
The Indian Gaur - sometimes called the Indian Bison - is a large member of the bovine family native to the evergreen forests or semi-evergreen and moist deciduous forests of much of Southeast Asia and the Indian Sub-continent. This animal has a head-and-body length of about 8.2-10.8 feet (250 to 330 cm) with a tail about 28 to 41 inches long (70 to 105 cm) An adult Gaur stands about 5.41 to 7.2 feet at the shoulder (165 to 220 cm) and on average weighs between 1,400 to 2,200 pounds (650 to 1,000 kg) Occasionally a large bull can weigh over 3,000 pounds (1,500 kg) Males are about one-fourth larger and heavier than females. They are herbivores, feeding on grasses, plants and flowers. Due to poaching and habitat loss the Gaur has been placed as endangered or vulnerable lists by some conservation organizations.
