Between The Pack And The Herd

Another diorama inside the Mammal Gallery features a confrontation between a bison and wolves. More bison are painted onto the background, and panels reveal additional information below.


For today I finish up with this panel on the dynamic between predator and prey.

  1. William - these days, there seem to be more confrontations between man and bison than wolves and bison! Terrific diorama!

  7. Imagine the great herds of bison that used to roam the plains. The noise of hooves must have been incredible.

  8. The predator , prey relationship is an interesting way to show the two critters at the same time.

  17. Yellowstone National Park learned some fascinating lessons when wolves were reintroduced. Species populations came more into balance and the ecosystem began to flourish as animal browsing patterns changed.
