Bison

I know I’ve mentioned before that turtles are one of, if not my favorite animals on this planet. Another one however, has been the bison. Again, like turtles, I don’t know why. For some reason one of my earliest recollections from our family vacations has been seeing them as we’ve traveled to various places in the summer.

Anyway, while the video here is short, the story here is a great story of how when human’s put their hearts together, they can do great things for other species. The article today is entitled “ Watch these magnificent bison return to the Badlands (video)by Melissa Breyer over at Treehugger. Like the Leatherback turtles, they are truly magnificent animals.

Indiana, bison and cars

I’ve always wanted to take my kids to Indiana to visit the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum. You see, that car is a part of my family history. My grandmother’s uncles invented that car.

These buffalo are so cool

Okay, so there’s no snow here and my daughter is very upset about that. She got a new sled for Christmas and she’s never had the chance to use. The buffalo are one of my favorite animals and they’re not here either. Still, it’s a cool story.

Check out the article entitled “How Bison Survive Winter in the Northern Great Plains” by Alison Henry over at the World Wildlife Federation.

Chow!
