The European bison, or 'wisent', is similar in appearance to its North American relative (Bison bison) (3). Although smaller in size (3), they have the characteristic thickset body shape with a short neck and a pronounced shoulder hump (2). There is a longer mane of hair underneath the neck and also on the forehead (2). The dense coat is dark to golden brown in colour (2), but is less shaggy than that of the American bison (3). Both sexes bear short horns that project outwards and then curve up (2).
