Bison are large bovines similar to buffalo, cows, and yaks. They are nomadic grazers that travel in herds.

These animals can be aggressive when protecting young and during the mating season, but they generally prefer running from any attackers to fighting. If pressed into aggression, these animals use their horns (found on both males and females) and their massive skulls as a battering ram.

A bison stands more than 6 feet tall at the shoulder and is 9 to 12 feet long. It weighs 1,800 to 2,400 pounds (180 to 240 bulk).
