Abstract

A pseudohermaphrodite American bison (Bison bison) behaved like an adult male when interacting with adult females, but like an adult female when interacting with adult males. Its chromosomes were a normal 60, XX and it had a uterus; but it had bilateral testes rather than ovaries. Skull measurements were intermediate between a bull and a cow. Gonadotrophs levels were typical of overiectomized domestic cows or steers.
