American Bison is also known as American Buffalo.
The fur is shaggy, long, dark brown in winter, and a lighter weight, lighter brown in the summer.
The term Buffalo is sometimes considered to be a misnomer for this animal as it is only distantly related to either two true Buffalo, the Asian Water Buffalo and the African Buffalo. The Wild Water Buffalo is considered to be a different species, is brownish-grey, and is on the endangered species list.
