Transcript of Buffalo
Bison have a brown coat. In the winter their coat gets shaggy and long to keep them warm. In the summer it gets lighter so they won't be so hot. They have a large forequarters and head. They also have a hump on their back just before their head. Bison have two horns that can grow up to 2 feet long. The horns are used for defense and fighting among the herd. Both the males and the females grow horns.
Bison are huge, but they are very fast. They can actually run faster than a horse and can jump over 6 feet high in the air. So don't think you can outrun a bison if it decides to attack you….you can't.
In the 1800s bison were hunted by the thousands. It's estimated that up to 100,000 were killed in a day. They were typically hunted for their coat. By the end of the 1800s bison were nearly extinct. There were only a few hundred left out of the millions that once roamed the prairies.

a nother word
for bffalo is
Bison are herbivores, meaning they eat plants. Mostly they graze on plants growing in the prairies like grasses and sedges. They spend most of the day grazing for a while and then resting while they chew their cud. Then they move to a new spot and repeat the process.
