This is my second sighting of the American Bison :) Get ready . . . lots of photos :)
Early American settlers called bison “bufello” due to the similar appearance between the two animals, and the name "buffalo" stuck for the American variety. But it's incorrect. The American Bison (Bison bison) lives only in North America, while the two main buffalo species reside in Africa and Asia. A small population of bison relatives called the European Bison (Bison bonasus) lives in isolated parts of Poland.
Yellowstone and Grand Teton bison herds are prolific and multiply rapidly. Range biologists say that Yellowstone can handle about 3,000 bison and Grand Teton Park can handle 600.
The information above, and additional information, can be found at Yellowstone Wildlife.
