Jaczewski (1958) notes that, in a sample of 67 bulls, only 3 lived beyond 20, the oldest being 23 at the time of death. In contrast, 11 out of 66 cows passed the 20-year mark, 4 lived beyond 25 years and the four oldest all made it to the age of 26. In the free-ranging population, the oldest marked female lived to be 24—far beyond the maximum of 18 noted for marked bulls. Overall, then, females can be said to pass the 25-year mark only rarely, while bulls rarely exceed 20 years of age. Bison in the wild have shorter lives than those in Reserves, although the determination of age using teeth and horns is obviously a less exact science than reference to known dates of birth.
These outline sketches present two markedly different animals. The back of the bison has a “carplike” shape, while that of the aurochs is flat. The forequarters of the bison are covered with long hair, and markedly long hair in the lower part of the neck, creating the so-called beard. In the aurochs, only the forehead bore a tuft of red hair known in old Polish as the “aurochs-lick” (turzy wicher). The tail of the aurochs ends in a distinct “brush”. The horns of the bison and aurochs in the two diagrams are very similar.
Furthermore, the share of genes of individual founders is extremely unequal in the two lines. The genes of M 45 PLEBEJER and F 42 PLANTA are nevertheless predominant in both lines, constituting over 80 % of those in the Lowland line, and half in the Lowland-Caucasian line (Olech 2003). 3 The Genetic Status of the Contemporary Population The small number of founders ensured a high degree of relatedness among members of the first generations, and hence extremely far-reaching inbreeding of their progeny.
