An 18-month-old, male American bison (Bison bison) was presented with 7- to 9-mm size nodules periorbital, perineal, and on the ventral surface of the tail. Demodex spp. were identified from the exudate by microscopic examination. Examination 6 mo later revealed that the infestation had nearly cleared without treatment.
