Bison! Bonasus sp.? Unless I'm badly mistaken, there are no
bison in India. Do you mean buffalo (Bubalus sp.)? The American
bison is commonly called a buffalo, but I don't believe a true
buffalo is ever called a bison. Or did the ProtoIndians know the
European or Northwest Asian bison before they migrated to India?
