- from Grand Canyon
All animals have their own unique needs, and the canyon provides habitats for a wide range of them.
It has warmth for sun-seeking salamanders and cool air for furry black bears. There are leafy plants for sheep and deer to eat, and cool waters for fish to swim in.
The Grand Canyon provides a welcoming habitat for many creatures. It’s home to more than 80 species of mammals and 50 species of reptiles and amphibians. You’ll also find 25 fish species and more than 300 kinds of birds.
Today, the most common animal in the Grand Canyon is the human tourist. But right now, let’s hang out with a few of the locals and learn more about them.
