What does a buffalo eat?

The American “buffalo” is more correctly called a bison. True buffalo live in African and Asia, and they look very different from bison, which are shaggy and have a pronounced hump on their backs.

The bison’s main predator is the wolf. But it is not easy for wolves to kill a buffalo in order to eat it. It always takes an entire pack of wolves working in cooperation in order to bring a buffalo down.

Grizzly bears sometimes kill and eat buffalo as well.
