Manjampatti White Bison

Manjampatti white bison are a type of gaur, (Tamil: காட்டேணி kaatteni, or kaattu erumai, meaning “forest buffalo”) occasionally seen in the Manjampatti Valley, a 110.9 km2 (42.8 sq mi) protected area at the eastern end of Indira Gandhi Wildlife Sanctuary and National Park in Coimbatore District, Tamil Nadu, South India. These gaur are notable for their distinctive ash-grey color as opposed to the almost black color of most gaur. Since 1929, there have been at least 19 documented sightings of these rare animals, including the 2004 photographs of N. A. Nazeer.
