American bison are the heaviest land animal in North America.
American bison are ungulates and are part of the family Bovidae along with cattle and goats. They can gallop at speeds up to 60 kilometres and are good swimmers as they are quite buoyant in the water.
American bison are social animals that live in groups of up to 30 individuals. Their shaggy fur offers them incredible insulation during the harsh winters. Bison move continuously while grazing and do not overgraze an area; but rather support a healthy landscape for both flora and fauna.
Size: Bison can be up to 4meters in length and range from 1.5 to 2 meters tall. Males are larger than females. They weigh from 700-900 Kg with some males reaching 1 ton.
