  1. I would agree with your assumption. Less time for bacteria and other harmful pathogens to grow and infest the water source.

    Btw, these gaur are super impressive animals. I would love to see one in person someday to get a real life perspective on their size.

The gaur, also called Indian bison, is the largest extant bovine and is native to South Asia and Southeast Asia. The species is listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List since 1986, as the population decline in parts of the species' range is likely to be well over 70% during the last three generations.
