One of the most iconic symbols of the American West!
Our plastic bison replica or toy is special. Look at the amazingly realistic detail, including that scraggly coat! This toy can be used in many ways. It could become an outstanding centerpiece for a great Plains, American animal, or Native American Indian shoebox diorama. This very realistic bison model will fit in a shoe box along with other animals, our cook fire, etc. Create a landscape with rocks, plants, grass, make a river or stream from anything that strikes your imagination, and there you go - a scene of life on our diverse and fascinating planet. Our plastic toy bison is made of solid plastic and is quite durable. Be sure to take a look at our other hoofed animals.
About Bison (American Buffalo)
Nearly hunted to extinction in the 19th century, the American bison has made a steady recovery in North America. Comprised of two distinct species, the smaller plains bison (Bison bison bison) and the larger wood bison (Bison bison athabascae), the American bison is the largest living land animal in North America, standing five to six feet tall at the shoulder and weighing nearly a ton.
While the names bison and buffalo have similar meanings, American bison are only distantly related to the two living species of true buffalo in Asia and Africa. This would come as a shock to Buffalo Bill Cody, who received his nickname from shooting hundreds of the animals during the hunting craze in North America during the 19th century. Truthfully, Cody never shot a buffalo in his life!
