American Bison classification: bovine, bubaline

American Bison class: Mammal

The American Bison (Bison bison) is a bovine mammal, also commonly known as the American buffalo. Buffalo is somewhat of a misnomer for this animal, as it is only distantly related to either of the two true buffaloes

the Asian buffalo (or water bufallo) and the African buffalo. However

bison is a Greek word meaning ox-like animal

while buffalo originated with the French fur trappers who called these massive beasts boeufs

meaning ox or bullock. So both names

bison and buffalo

have a similar meaning.

The bison once inhabited the Grasslands of the United States and Asia in massive herds, ranging from the Great Slave Lake in Canada's far north to Mexico in the south, and from eastern Oregon almost to the Atlantic Ocean, taking its subspecies into account. Its two subspecies are the Plains Bison (Bison bison bison), distinguished by its smaller size and more rounded hump, and the Wood Bison (Bison bison athabascae), distinguished by its larger size and taller square hump. Wood Bison are one of the largest species of cattle in the world, surpassed in size only by the massive Asian gaur and Wild Asian Water Buffalo, both of which are found mainly in India and Southeast Asia. It is also the largest extant land animal in North America.

Bison are herbivores, grazing on the grasses and sedges of the North American prairies. They eat in the morning and evening, and rest during the day. Bison mate in August and September; gestation is 285 days. A single reddish-brown calf is born the following spring, and it nurses for a year. Bison are mature at three years of age, and have a life expectancy of approximately 15 years in the wild and up to 25 years in captivity.
