Powerful Bison

 

 

We are currently experience extreme cold temperatures.  I feel so bad for the animals like these that live on the Wildlife Prairie in Illinois.  It’s currently -17 with a windchill of -43 in NW Indiana.  I was with a group of photographers taking photos from a good distance away as as the owners would not allow us passed the gate.  The bison and deer that live on  the prairie seemed to be intimidated by the big group of photographers that were “shooting” them from the gate and moved down the prairie as soon was they saw us.  Aren’t they handsome animals?

Bison in the Snow

What’s the difference between a bison and a buffalo?

It’s so common, in fact, that we sometimes use the two interchangeably. But if you really want to know the difference between a buffalo and a bison, the American Bison is native to North and South America and Europe, while the other two buffalo species reside in Africa and Asia.
