Description

Bison bonasus (Linnaeus, 1758)

English: Wisent in the Wisentgehege Springe game park near Springe, Hanover, Germany. The European bison or wisent (Bison bonasus) is the heaviest of the surviving land animals in Europe, with males growing to around 1,000 kg (2,200 lb). European bison were hunted to extinction in the wild, but have since been reintroduced from captivity into several countries. This male is moulting, his winter coat coming off in clumps.
