Some vignettes inspired by photos from a Wyoming visit.
Nice! Was that really a Bison or a Buffalo?
Sent from my iPad
The American Buffalo isn’t a true buffalo. What we know of as Buffalo from the American West is technically a bison. (Latin: bison bison)
Proper Buffalo (the phrase brings up all kinds of cartoony images) are often found in Africa & South Asia, such as
the water buffalo.
That’s what I know. Google searches seem to use the term interchangeably.
