People commonly call the North American Bison a "Buffalo". This majestic animal has even been proud enough to grace the face of our money in what is known as the "Buffalo Nickle". There's only one problem... this animal is not a Buffalo. I'm not sure where the misconceptions occured or why but it stands none the less. In either case there is an animal out there that is in fact a buffalo but you would have to cross the ocean to find it. It's the African Cape Buffalo and a very impressive creature in it's own right. In fact the Cape Buffalo is listed as one of Africa's most dangerous animals (dispite the total lacking of claws and sharp teeth).
