Wood Bison Portrait - Bison bison athabascae - Robert Bateman

"The wood bison is a race of the bison or buffalo, which lives in the more remote forested
areas. Until recently, it was considered endangered. In fact, it was one of the five subjects
which the Canadian Post Office asked me to depict in postal stamps.

There is some recent good news for these animals. They have been breeding well in
captivity and have been reintroduced into some wilderness areas of suitable habitat. They
prefer rather open scattered woodland mixed with wet meadows. Sedges are their favorite
food. In winter the heavy hooves and the head with its thick, wooly hair and beard are
used to dig through the snow for a feed. Like most varieties of animals, as their range
moves toward the poles, the mass of the animal becomes greater, therefore the wood
bison are larger than their prairie cousins with darker fur and a steeper shoulder
hump. They, of course, are gregarious creatures, staying together in herds. I tried
to show this intimacy in my painting. The big bulls tolerate cows and young until the
males reach an age when they could be seen as potential rivals."
