The American bison, also commonly known as the American buffalo, is a North American species of bison that once roamed the grasslands of North America in massive herds, became nearly extinct by a combination of commercial hunting and slaughter in the 19th century and introduction of bovine diseases from domestic cattle, and has made a recent resurgence largely restricted to a few national parks and reserves.
These Bison were photographed near the Biscuit Basin in Yellowstone National Park.
Biscuit Basin is one of three basins that make up the Upper Geyser Basin. Biscuit Basin is famous for the stone formations that surrounded some of the features prior to the 1959 earthquake.
