Bison typically roam the tall grasses of the American prairie, but a herd in Grand Canyon National Park has found ways to thrive in forest and desert habitats. Courtesy of NPS Bison typically spend their lives peacefully munching the tall grasses that grow on America's vast prairies. But, as humans have encroached on the large, shaggy mammals' preferred habitat, they've taken it upon themselves to find new homes. To that end, many bison, also known as American buffalo, have found sanctuary inside Grand Canyon National Park.
