# Why the statistics for a real gas are not quantum in nature?

TL;DR Summary
If the gas molecules are either bosons or fermions, why the gas statistics is classical?
A gas of bosons or fermion particles follows a particular quantum statistics. Then why a molecular gas (say, H2) follows a classical distribution statistics? Is it not the case that the molecules should be indistinguishable one from another and be either bosons or fermions? What is exactly the condition which allows a classical statistics?

What makes you think it does?

Lack of education, I guess. :-)
Case resolved, thank you for the hint.
