Our Stuffed Bison or Buffalo This charming stuffed buffalo is cuddly and very soft. It's also versatile. It can sit up or stand, and the beans inside keep it in a sitting position if that's what you prefer. We think the buffalo likes sitting up, because it gets a better vew that way.

It fits well into a bedroom setting with an Old West or cowboy theme, or will sit quietly on a soft, comfy sofa. This bison promises to be a good friend for you or any child. Even its horns and hooves are made of soft fabric. It may remind you how much you enjoy watching animals in nature, at the zoo, or on a farm. We hope it will create a desire to learn about the live wild animals.

More accurately called bison today, it is believed that buffalo crossed over a land bridge that once connected the Asian and North American continents. Through the centuries buffalo slowly moved southward, eventually reaching as far as Mexico and as far east as the Atlantic Coast, extending south to Florida. But, the largest herds were found on the plains and prairies, from the Rocky Mountains east to the Mississippi River, and from Great Slave Lake in Canada to Texas. Because the great herds were nearly gone before any organized attempts were made to survey populations, it will never be known just how many buffalo once roamed North America, although estimates range from 30 to 75 million. Â“The moving multitudeÂ…darkened the whole plains,Â” wrote Lewis and Clark, who encountered a herd at South DakotaÂ’s White River in 1806. Although the buffaloÂ’s size and color, which ranges from light to dark brown, vary in different areas of the country, experts generally agree that all American buffalo belong to the same species. The differences in appearance probably result from the variety of environments in which they live.
