This weekend we were lucky enough to see gaur in Kaeng Krachan National Park. The pictures are just record shots (ISO 3200 - which is a place I never normally go) but its nice to see them doing well and that the park's work on gaur habitat improvement seems to be very successful. We had two sightings within a kilo of each other, at dusk.

Have a new camera so ISO 3200 is a place I can go now ;+)

A herd of gaur exiting the forest in the late evening. You would think it was Kui Buri but I swear its Kaeng Krachan.

Great to see a big herd of them from Kaeng Krachan, and quite a few calfs, that's great!
Hopefully the area becomes accessible for visitors to witness this.

May I ask a question? Thais seem to call both gaur and banteng the same thing: krathing. Is that correct? I've been out with Thai friends, spotting banteng and they call it krathing (กระทิง). It's very confusing.

They are two separate species, The Thai name for a banteng is "wua daeng".
