Time of eruption, replacement, and teeth complete crown formation was studied in 79 European bison. Deciduous teeth erupt during the first 3 months, and are completely formed by the 6th month of life. Molars erupt between the 6th and 43rd month, and attain their full height during the following 5-13 months. Deciduous premolars are replaced during the 27-44th months, as are incisors from the 22-44th months and canines from the 38-44th month. The results are compared with data from species closely related to the European bison - the American bison and domestic cattle.
