Large bulls can measure 5-6 feet (1.5 to 1.8 m) at shoulder, and weigh 1,600-2,200 pounds (725-1,000 kg), occasionally as much as 3,000 pounds (1,350 kg). Females are much smaller, weighing about 900 pounds (400 kg) or less.

  1. So what’s the story on this bison? General info on the species doesn’t cut it.

    1. Gordon,
      It’s not an article on any particular bison. It’s a photo gallery of the top bison in the SCI Record Book. Hope that clarifies things. Thanks for the comment.
