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.

Weight between 900-1500kg for the Gaur and 300-900kgs for the cape.



 
Isn't 1500 kg the record for gaur? 
And 900 kg record for the cape? 
Should be more realistic with a 700-800 big cape buffalo and a 1000-1200big bull gaur! That would be cool if someone could make? 


 

Out of 100 Cape buffalo weighed at Kruger, the largest was 757kg, so more realistically a bull cape will be around 500-700kg and a big gaur will be around the 1000-1200kg I would say.

 

I have heard that buffalos in Zambia tend to be big, do you have any weight from them? I was also just inpressed by a cuple bulls when i was in Krüger! Not that big there, but the biggest one where big. But a big bull is more 600-700 kg. 500 kg is not enough to make a big bull. Cape buffalos are very long tho, often longer than water buffalos!

They can be longer than Water Buffalo but water buffalo are taller and heavier.
Apparently the Cape buffalo is a shorter bovine with a short limbs and a very heavy and long body.

It also says the record sized "savanah type bufalo"
So apparently buffalos who live in that type of landscape are the larges for Capes.

Check out the agility of the Gaur at 1:34

That is to hard of a question, if I was forced to choose, I think It would be the White Rhino. Something about them just fascinates me. The gaur and Cape are up there as well, I also like the N. American Bison. They are big, mean and strong bovines.

Haha very cool! Just like an 30 kg deer! Only a 1000 kg, that was impressive! 

Yeah I'm a rhino man! I love the indian rhino! They are just so cool looking! And are big and very aggressive aswell, most aggressive rhino next to the black rhino! 

And I like more the water buffalo and cape buffalo. More cause of their aggression! I love gaur's, but not as much as the cape and water buffalos!

I have heard Indian Rhino are very large and close to white rhinos in size.
How do they look compared to each other in your eyes?

I have experience with white rhinos from zoo, and have seen them in the wild! And only two times I have seen indian one's, so I have seen some massive white rhinos, so In my case of experience with the two the withe is bigger, 

but I'm sure some gigantic Indian rhinos are out there! And they are way more aggressive! I just love the indian rhino!

I think the Indian rhino is taller while the White rhino is longer.

The bull elephant thrashed the female hippo which was trying to defend her young. The hippo escaped in the end.

Found this one of a 178 cm tall man, and a bull gaur, bull buffalo! This one seems more realistic!
