- from Grand Canyon
All animals have different needs.
The canyon gives many creatures a good place to live. It has warmth for salamanders that like the sun. It has cool air for furry black bears. Sheep and deer get leafy plants to eat, and fish get cool waters to swim in.
The Grand Canyon is home to more than 80 species of mammals. It has 50 species of reptiles and amphibians too. You’ll also find 25 fish species. Plus, there are more than 300 kinds of birds.
Today, the most common animal in the canyon is the human tourist. But right now, let’s meet a few of the locals.
