American Bison (Bison bison)

Origin: North America
Sighted at: Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch, New Braunfels, TX

About a year ago, my father and I went to Natural Bridge Ranch to see the terrific animals they had there. This Labor Day, I took Cat down there so that she could see them for herself!

This is one of the few ungulates I didn’t get a picture of last time – the American Bison! There are only two surviving species of bison remaining in the world. The American Bison was once an endangered species, but has been brought back to reasonable numbers through careful husbandry and care. You can find bison meat in many grocery stores!
