Very picturesque, but I like the cranes video more. Thanks for shaing these with all of us.

I found the periodic leaping of one buffalo on top of the other somewhat disturbing. Not because I mind animals enjoying themselves, or even working out their little dominance games. (Both of those kinda went with the music, somehow.)

But (as emphasized in the last scene) it's a little alarming when something sticks its very large nose and horns in your direction, and you have recently been reminded of just how quickly it can launch its entire, enormous mass up above your height.

We're pretty lucky they haven't launched a counter-offensive after the 1880's railway slaughters, all things considered.

Thanks for the nice clip!

I once came face to face with one of these massive Wood Buffalo when I was in the Yukon Territory in northern Canada. One look told me that this guy wasn't a feedlot escapee. They are the largest land animals in North America with males topping 2000 lb. They were near extinction at one time with only a few hundred surviving in Alberta. Now protected, they have migrated into new areas and some were transported to Alaska and others to Russia where the new herds are doing well. This picture may be from Russia. The language is unfamiliar to me. http://lt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaizdas:Wood-Buffalo-NP_Waldbison_2_98-07-02.jpg
 
If we don't do the shopping, we won't have anything for dinner. And I've invited this tiny ad:
