A bit if yellowstone in Australia … These creatures are something else .. in Australia i know of 2 Bison farms .. Morpeth ( where this pic was taken ) and one near Dubbo which i’m yet to visit ( may 2023 i’ll get there )
Of course being a hoofed animal they are not native to australia but still a magnificent creature . i have on a motorbike ride to USA been up close to wild ones and it was quite nerve wracking being so exposed .here in australia we are used to buffalo ( although still not a native animal here )
buffalo and bison are distinct animals. buffalo and water buffalo are native to Africa and Asia. Bison are found in North America and Europe. Both bison and buffalo are in the bovidae family, but the two are not closely related.
.To American Indians, bison also represent their spirit and remind them of how their lives were once lived, free and in harmony with nature.
The native word for Bison is Tatanka .. . the Lakota word
To 'Be Tanka' means to Live Life Powerfully:
