Bison A A

Bison are still around today and are abundant in North America. They are sometimes referred to as the
American Buffalo and can usually be found grazing in the Plains.

A jaw bone along with its surviving teeth are displayed here along with the leg bones of this beast. The left femur tells us just how large and powerful this creature really was.
