Buffalo are the largest animals that have been found in North America and can grow up to 6-7 feet in length, weighing up to 2,000lbs. True buffalo live only in Asia and Africa. Buffalo live mainly in the plains, but some of them are known to inhabit the valleys and forests. Buffalo and bison plays an important role in the North American plains for many years.
Plains Indians used every part of the buffalo, to help them survive. Their skins were used for clothing, blankets and shelters, the meat is used for food, and the bones were used for tools and toys. Horns have been used for cups and spoons, while tendons were used for spun yarns and cords. Buffalo chips are used as fuel.
Buffaloes live in tropical and sub-tropical forests of Asia. They are aptly named because they spend most of their time in the water. Their hooves are extremely wide and prevent them from sinking into the mud at the bottom of lakes, marshes and rivers.
Buffalo are herbivores and feed on about 60 pounds of plant material, herbs and grasses in the day.
Bison are herbivores, feeding on grass of prairie on the ground throughout the year. They tend to rest during the day and feed in the morning and evening hours. Bison also have to find water every day.
