We did not see lots of Buffalos although we asked around and tried to find someplace to see a whole herd. This fellow was kept as a tourist attraction at a "trading post" not far from Mesa Verde.

They said to keep our hands out of the pen because this was a really angry example. He was also BIG and clearly very heavy.

Of course, I wouldn't have expected him to be a happy go lucky type, fenced in as he is and all alone except for nutty tourists making faces at him.

We never saw a mountain lion either. Just as well I guess. I took a picture of this one in a glass box at another tourist stop.

Per took the shot below which may explain the difference in color. He uses KodakGold
