It is the largest Asian antelope. Very strong body, but legs are thinner than body. Often mistaken as 'sambar' deer. But it is much bigger than that and no such long horns too. Males has two black, conical horns, arising close together just behind the eyes. Adult males have a grey to bluish-grey coat, with white spots on the cheeks and white colouring on the edges of the lips. Male are larger than female.
Can be seen throughout India. This one spotted at Gir forest, Gujarat, India. They eat grasses, leaves, buds, and fruits and avoid dense forest.
