The biggest living mammal in North America is the bison (commonly called the buffalo). There are two types of bison: the woods bison (which is larger than its brother) and the plains bison. Bison can grow to be 11.5 feet long, 5-6.5 feet tall, and up to 2,200 pounds. They are grazers (like cows and sheep) that live in herds. They have the capability to run up to 40 miles per hour (not something you’d want to stand in the way of give their size). At one point, the Great Plains were covered in bison, but overhunting has taken a large toll from their numbers down to the hundreds. They have since rebounded with the help of conservation and preservation.
