There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Same, I'd love to see two prime specimens next to one another.

They often take short-cuts through the tea/coffee/spice plantations & adjoining settlements instead of the identified forest corridors.
They mostly keep to themselves though...

Here you go @Wolverine 


There should be a few factors taken into account first
One is that the exaggerated shoulder and neck flap in the Gaur gives the impression that their neck is thin

but when viewed from the front you can see just how thick it really is

Where a Cape doesn't have such an exaggerated shoulder and neck which take away from the true neck size

I'd venture to guess that neck dimensions on both are fairly close

@Pckts specially for you, an epic fight between Hindu Hercules and gaur. I didn't believe that outside Hollywood could be created a movie with such a magnitude and genious as Bahubali. The gaur is simply majestic:
