I guess I never thought that they were two distinct species and we round them up as Buffalo. Beautiful pictures of this mama and her calves.

They are magnificent creatures. I don't know their differences so I would have thought they were buffalo. Beautiful photos!

Awesome creature with beautiful little lambs. It is a pity that this animal which once freely roamed all over America now stands largely decimated.
