Incredible animals that live in US National Parks

Let’s take a look at magnificent creatures that live in parks and where to find them. Animals are protected as well as the land, which means they can live peacefully in their natural habitat. Without this protection, some species already might be extinct.

Moose

This beast is considered one of the most majestic and also dangerous creatures which live in United States National Parks. It weighs more than 500 kilograms. The largest ones can be found in willow or aspen forests, they grow in the northern part of the US and Canada. If you ever visit Denali National park in Alaska, you will definitely see them.

Hawksbill Sea Turtle

90 percent of exotic wildlife is found in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and it cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Hawksbill sea turtle is one of the species that can be seen there, but the area is not isolated, it still has its freedom. It is a reptile and feeds on seaweed, small crustaceans and jellyfish.

Bald Eagle

This eagle is a national animal and emblem of the United States of America. Conservationists worked hard and because of them now they are not endangered species anymore. You can easily spot them across the northern part of the US and mostly Acadia National Park.

Grizzly Bears

These predator’s population are found in North America. Grizzlies are massive, their speed can reach up to 40 kilometers per hour.  The vast majority live in Alaska in the wilderness, but Glacier National Park currently has 48 bears living there.

American Alligator

To see this predator, you need to visit Everglades National Park in Florida. This reptile shares water with snakes, wading birds, crocodiles and various species of fish. Of course, you can spot them in the wild, but this is a much safer way to do that. You can get closer too by taking a boat and explore the swamps in the park.

Gray Wolves

These mammals are thriving in Alaska but are an endangered species in lower forty-eight states. Minnesota is an exception; there they are threatened. In most United States parks, you can spot a couple of them, but mostly these canines are located in Yellowstone National park. If you go at mating season you will be able to hear their signature spine-tingling howl, that’s how they communicate.

Bighorn sheep

This sheep’s horns can weight up to 7 kilograms. They are their weapons in fighting for territory with other male bighorns. You can always see them on cliffs and hillsides, very rarely on the ground. To see them jumping from rock to rock visit Rocky Mountain National Park or Utah’s Zion National Park.
