American Bison
As An Animal Of The Americas
Found In The Wildlife Safari

The American bison (Bison bison), also commonly known as the American buffalo or simply buffalo, is a North American species of bison that once roamed the grasslands of North America in massive herds. They became nearly extinct by a combination of commercial hunting and slaughter in the 19th century and introduction of bovine diseases from domestic cattle, but have made a recent resurgence largely restricted to a few national parks and reserves.

A bison walked away from approaching cars; out of the shade and back into sunlight.
