Snow Movers


For months on end their food is buried.  Herbivores - plant eaters - face the same relentless fate: adapt or starve.

 

To reach sedges and dry grass, bison swing their huge heads back and forth, clearing away the drifts.  Fields become pocked

with bowl-shaped "feeding craters."

 

Since bison often stand motionless for hours, conserving strength, their foraging techniques are not always evident.  Look for the 

white mask of survival - snow still clinging to a shaggy face.

 

The Bison's Hump

 

Life in the deep snow has selectively shaped bison anatomy.  Above neck and shoulders, large muscles attached to bony spinal

projections give the dark heads tremendous excavating power.

 

Graphics on the sign

 

In addition to the text this sign features a skeletal graphic of a buffalo (bison) and a photo of a buffalo in the snow.
