The bisons massive head is its most characteristic feature. Its forehead bulges because of its convex-shaped frontal bone. Its shoulder hump, dwindling bowlike to the haunches, is supported by unusually long spinal vertebrae. Over powerful neck and shoulder muscles grows a great shaggy coat of curly brown fur, and over the head, like an immense hood, grows a shock of black hair. Its forequarters are higher and much heavier than its haunches. A mature bull stands about 6 1/2 feet (2 meters) at the shoulder and weighs more than 2,000 pounds (900 kilograms). The bisons horns are short and black. In the male they are thick at the base and taper abruptly to sharp points as they curve outward and upward; the females horns are more slender, Bison bison, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming Add To Light Table Waterbuck, Meru National Park, Kenya, Kobus ellipsiprymnus Add To Light Table Wildebeest Herd, Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya, Connochaetes taurinus Add To Light Table
