We learned that the Grand Canyon National Park has 75 species of mammals, 50 species of reptiles and amphibians, 25 species of fish, and over 300 species of birds exist. The park's most celebrated inhabitants is the squirrel.

The park is home to a wide variety of animals. Mule deer are common throughout the park and are the mammals most commonly seen on the rim. Besides that there can be found:
*Desert bighorn;
*Mountain lions;
*Hundred species of birds
*Countless insects and arachnids.

Just have a look around!
