Whatever you call it – buffalo or bison – this baby is A-dorable. There’s a state park (Big Bone Lick) near the Bungalow that has, amongst other cool attractions, a herd of buffalo. The Kids here love it. In times past Big Bone Lick was a gathering spot for animals of all sizes. Bison, mastodon, giant sloth, among them. The area was mineral rich (like a natural salt lick – hence the lick). Unfortunately for the larger creatures the ground was boggy and many of the animals sank into the ground and later died. The bones of these large animals were later unearthed (hence Big Bone).
We love the buffalo so much that we’ve rendered the bison in wood (walnut). You can find them in our shop.
