Study of an American Bison. Head in profile.
Bison are the symbolic animal of the Great Plains, and are
frequently identified with American heritage. They are the
heaviest land animal in North America and can weigh a ton.
Like human females, bison give birth to one calf after a
nine-month pregnancy. Once the prolific species of the
American plains, the bison was hunted for food, sport, and
to rob the Native Americans of their most valuable natural
resource. Today bison are raised in preserves and on
arches for food.
