About BisonAbout Bison

Bison
Millions of bison once thundered across America. Today, approximately 500,000 bison live across North America. Bison are large, even-toed ungulates in the genus Bison within the subfamily Bovinae.

Currently there are only 2 species of Bison; however, there are 4 species that are extinct. The 2 existing species are the American bison, B. bison, found only in North America, and often referred as a "buffalo" and B. bonasus, or Wisent, is found in Europe and the Caucasus.

The America Bison has two subspecies, the Plains Bison and the Wood Bison.

The four extinct species were the North American: Bison antiquus, B. latifrons, and B. occidentalis, as well as the B. priscus that ranged across Western Europe and Central Asia.

Sometimes bison are bred with domestic cattle and produce fertile offspring called Beefalo or Zubron.
