Bison Calves

Calving season is upon us in Grand Teton National Park. A herd of Bison are hanging out near Gros Ventre Campground, with a couple calves and yearlings.

It’s estimated that over 50 million American bison once roamed the Great Plains before they were nearly hunted to extinction by settlers. Size does not slow down the largest land mammal in North America. Even at 750-2500 pounds, Bison can run up to speeds of 35 mph. See these mammals roaming the Park, as calves are being born.
