Bison are the largest terrestrial mammal in North America. Their large, low-hanging heads allows themn to gather low-growing vegetation, even in the snow, and their thick fur insulates them from extreme environmental conditions. Their sharp horns aid in self-defense. These unique physical characteristics that cause bison to be easily recognized also play an important role in their historical success.
An agreement between Montana’s wildlife agency and a northeastern Montana Indian reservation that allowed for the recent translocation and long-term care of more than 60 disease-free bison is now available online.
