Bison and Buffalo

Bison and Buffalo

I was curious to find out what the difference between Bison and Buffalo was, since I've heard both terms used. I figured it must be something like how alligators and crocodiles are different. I found this site that explains it: Bison and Buffalo and realized that North America is home not to the buffalo, but to the Bison.

That means that instead of seeing the "World's Largest Buffalo" yesterday, I was really looking at the the World's Largest "Bison" and that the National Buffalo Museum in Jamestown, ND should have been called the National Bison Museum.... I feel deceived!
