differences between a species and a close
hybrid are easier to distinguish when viewed side by side. Between the
Bison and the hybrid bison some differences that are easier to pick
out are shape and direction of horns, tails, and body shape and
size. On the
hybrid bison, you can really see the influence of cattle in their horns.
