wisent, europese bizon
Bison bonasus

The European bison is the heaviest wild land animal in Europe, and is one of the european big fives.On average, it is slightly lighter in body mass and yet taller at the shoulder than the American bison (Bison bison).

European bisons were hunted to extinction in the wild. They have since been reintroduced from captivity into several countries in Europe. The total population is around 4,600. All of them being issued from only 6 ancestors they suffer from many genetic issues.

Do not go closer than 50m from those.

Thanks for watching

Hello JeanMarie
Thank you for sharing this amazing animal that has been saved from extinction. He's one impressive looking Bison. Your front view shows how powerful the Bison is with soft colours and sharp details. A lovely portrait.
