A bison is a wild cow. It looks a lot like a cow, but it is bigger. It can be a lot bigger. In fact, a bison is the biggest land animal in North America!
A bison can be up to six feet (1.75 metres) at the shoulder. It can be over 12 feet (3.5 metres) long!
That means they are as tall as a man, and as long as two men laying head to toe!
They also weigh much more than a man. A male bison can weigh as much as a ton (900 kilograms)! That is as much as a car weighs!
Learn what a bison looks like, where it lives, what it eats, who are their enemies, how babies are born, and other fun facts.
