bestiary: american bison

not to mistaken with buffalo, these guys can weigh a tonne but can run at speeds of nearly sixty five kilometers per hour. they eat grass though so they won't be coming after you for a meal, only if, you know, you piss them off. i didn't know that the males and females generally live separately save for mating season. like many a good male, they fight over the ladies but they don't go to the point of killing eachother. sensible, right? another fun fact is that their hides are so well insulated that snow can accumulate on their backs not melt. bison bison in moleskine.
