Bison or Buffalo ~ What's the Difference?

The grand animal that roams through North and South America which is commonly referred to as a Buffalo, is actually a Bison, not a Buffalo.  Bison and Buffalo are related in appearance somewhat but are a different animal all together, although they come from the same species or family.   The Bison has a big furry beard and coat to keep him warm, he lives in extremely cold regions, and he is not as large as the African Buffalo.  The Bison is not domesticated and has no desire to entertain that style of life.  The Bison wants to roam free on it's own terms... wild and free.
