The American Bison, also known as the American Buffalo, is a large, herbivorous mammal that is native to North America. It is the largest land mammal in North America and one of the largest in the world, weighing up to 2,000 pounds (907 kg) and standing up to 6 feet (1.8 m) tall at the shoulder.
Bison have a shaggy, brown coat, a hump on their shoulders, and a large head with curved horns. They are grazers, feeding on grasses and other vegetation, and can be found in grasslands, prairies, and open woodlands. Bison once roamed the North American continent in vast herds, but their numbers were drastically reduced by overhunting and habitat loss in the 19th and early 20th centuries. However, conservation efforts have helped to increase their numbers and protect them from extinction, and they can still be seen in some national parks and reserves in the United States and Canada.
