An aurochs is a type of large wild cattle that once dwelled in the majority of Westeros, but through hunting and domestication the areas they are found in the wild have dwindled. One place reportedly still inhabited by wild aurochs is near the juncture of the kingsroad and the Green Fork of the Trident in the riverlands.[1]

Aurochs are frequently used as a symbol of size, strength, stubbornness, and stupidity.


An aurochs is said to have been used as a mount by the mythical Clarence Crabb, as horses could not bear his weight.[2]
