How do you tell male and female bison apart?  

Pictured is a male bison.  You can tell he is a boy, because his horns stand straight up. Horns on a female bison curve inward.

False Broomweed… a new flora species

False Broomweed... a new flora species

This is a new species I have never encountered on the Llano Estacado – Haploesthes Greggii, or more commonly know as False Broomweed. This native evergreen is a subshrub with dark green foliage and is aromatic. It is unpalatable to wildlife and livestock. It is found on clay-loam soils that have been mechanically or chemically disturbed.
