The Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo recently welcomed six, bouncing baby American bison calves, four of which are now on exhibit at the zoo’s Bison Range.

The calves were born to a herd of seven females and one male which arrived at the zoo from Ft. Peck, MT last November.

The herd was a historic gift from the Anniniboine and Sioux tribes and was significant because the Ft. Peck bison are from the Yellowstone National Park bloodline and are among the few pure bison remaining.
