Also commonly known as the American Buffalo, the bison once roamed the grasslands of North America in massive herds that numbered in the thousands if not millions. The bison nearly went extinct in the 19th century but today is making a dramatic recovery (especially in reserves like the 10xXx Ranch and national parks). The ranch has a small herd that enjoy the casual lifestyle of a “ranch ornament”. The rugged bison is a site to behold for ranch guests.
