Bison

SKU: BNC1023008

Bisons are known for their massive heads and impressive horns, and their scientific name, Bison bison, reflects their iconic status. However, the term "buffalo" is often used interchangeably with "bison." While they are closely related, true buffaloes are native to Africa and Asia, and the term "buffalo" technically refers to species like the African buffalo or water buffalo.

So, when you hear about the American buffalo, it's actually a misnomer. The correct term is "American bison." This distinction helps to clarify the different species and their geographical distribution, highlighting the unique characteristics of these majestic animals in North America.
