A small head of Buffalo. Such enormous animals.
These shots were taken at the National Bison Range in Ravalli Montana. But they generally are found in the grasslands of North America.
Their range once roughly comprised a triangle between the Great Bear Lake in Canada's far northwest, south to the Mexican states of Durango and Nuevo León, and east along the western boundary of the Appalachian Mountains. Because of commercial hunting and slaughter in the 19th century, the bison nearly went extinct and is today restricted to a few national parks and other reserves.
