The bison are the largest terrestrial animals extant in North America and Europe. Bison are good swimmers and can cross rivers over half a mile wide. They are nomadic grazers and travel in herds.
A bison has a shaggy, long, dark brown winter coat, and a lighter weight, lighter brown summer coat. The male bison are slightly larger than the female and, in some cases, can be considerably heavier. The heads and forequarters are massive, and both sexes have short, curved horns that can grow up to 2 feet (61 cm) long, which they use in fighting for status within the herd and for defense.
Bison are herbivores, grazing on the grasses and sedges of the prairies. Their daily schedule involves two-hour periods of grazing, resting and cud chewing, then moving to a new location to graze again.
