Wisent "Bonni"

Product 11 of 108

The wisent, also called European bison, is an Eurasian bison species (Bison bonasus) which lives in forests. In Europe it was hunted excessively and thus became extinct, only 56 animals survived in captivity. Some decades ago reintroduction projects began, reintroducing them to large natural forersts, even in Germany. Summing up to a population of about 3000 free living specimen, their species stays vulnerable and has to be protected in future.

The European bison lives in soley male and mixed herds of male, female and calves. They are not neccessarily a family. Encounters between herds are not seldom, but always friendly, because they do not have territories. Often some individuals even join the other group, further mixing the groups.

Even though wisents grow very tall (up to 2 m ~ 6.5') and heavy (up tp 1000 kg ~ 2200 lb) they are surprisingly agile and able to make a standing jump of 3 m (~10'). Our plush wisent "Bonni" is not able to do so, but luckily it is not as tall and heavy too. This is propably better for keeping it in a house.
