I’m a pupfish living in one of the hottest places on the planet. My relatives have survived this environment for eons. I hope I can continue living in this place – the odds are not in my favor.
Mountain goats are not native to this national park, so they’re being airlifted to another ecosystem and the remainder is being eliminated to restore this park’s natural balance.
I live in all 48 contiguous states because I’m one of the most adaptive animals on the planet. I can even increase the size of my litter when our species is threatened. Here I’m chilling near Montana’s Glacier National Park.
I don’t like to brag, but as a desert bighorn sheep, I’m a skilled climber in steep, rocky terrain, which helps me avoid mountain lions in this Utah national park, known for The Subway and The Beehives.
I don’t play the bugle, but I can still bugle. And a WRT photographer took this picture of me during my autumn rutting spectacle, along Trail Ridge Road in this national park. Geez! Can’t an elk get some privacy?
As a white-crowned pigeon found normally in only one U.S. state, I get very jealous watching all the tourists go gaga over the oversized reptiles in my park.
I love roaming this national park and fattening myself up for winter hibernation. But black bears like me are sad that this place’s namesake will completely vanish in approximately 20 years.
I’m related to the rabbit and hang out in alpine rock piles. I’m shy but like to squeak at hikers from inside my crevice. I don’t have a tail. My home here is the Inyo National Forest just outside of Yosemite.
The famous bison herd at this national park is maintained at 3,000 and when it grows too large, the animals are sold for meat and hides. The reasons why are too complicated for this quiz.
I love the desert. And I am the only venomous lizard native to the United States. My home in this photo is Saguaro National Park, AZ.
