Watch 800Pound Bison Does Crazy Happy Dance on First Day of Spring

first_img A massive, 800-pound bison in North Carolina is going viral online after she did a crazy “happy dance” to celebrate the first day of spring.On Thursday, North Carolina Zoo posted a 48-second video of the galloping bison, which shows the hilarious animal bucking across an open prairie, dropping to the ground, and rolling in chewed-up grass and mud. As of this morning, the video has generated almost 100,000 views and more than 1,000 shares on Facebook. Debbie Foster Fuchs, the zoo’s spokesperson, told the Charlotte Observer that the bison is named Calf, and she’s part of the zoo’s small herd of American Bison. The other female bison are named Libby, Lucy, and Nohorn, a bison that doesn’t have any horns. According to the zoo’s website, American Bison can weigh up to 1,000 pounds. Despite their large frames, these animals can reach run speeds of 40 mph and use their heads as plows in winter weather to dig up plants. Interestingly enough, bison are also crepuscular, meaning that they rest during the heat of the day.More on Tiny Bird Made One of the Longest Migrations EverGigantic, Rare Sunfish Randomly Washes Up on a Beach in AustraliaChina Clones the ‘Sherlock Holmes of Police Dogs’ Watch: Dolphin Leaps Feet Away From Unsuspecting SurferWatch: Deep-Sea Octopus ‘Billows Like a Circus Tent’ Stay on targetlast_img read more
