Grand Canyon Fauna - Animals

Grand Canyon Fauna

The Grand Canyon is a vast place and as a result hosts a large variety of animals within her boundaries, including several species that are native.

Bighorn Sheep

These animals prefer the rocky slopes of the inner canyon. The rocky slopes keep them safer from predators. The magnificent horns of the bighorn sheep continue to grow throughout their lives and are not shed. The males horns grow to a full curl and the females are only a half curl. The Bighorn feed in the early morning in herds. They are herbivores and feed on grasses and other flora in the park.

The California Condor

The Grand Canyon is a safe haven for endangered species, such as the California Condor, to live and attempt to save themselves from extinction. The California Condor, a magnificent bird, with a wing span of almost ten feet, is living in the Grand Canyon. Even with the effort of the last years to revive this species there are few birds living. The California Condor has been listed as an endangered species since 1967. Reintroduction of the birds in Arizona began in 1996. Condor #305 was the first wild hatched condor in Arizona in the last century. In 2005, nearly 250 condors were living both in the wild and in captivity. 45 of the birds were in Arizona, including three new chicks, but only one of the chicks were at the Grand Canyon.

Reptiles

Reptiles are common in the desert. The environment supports interesting reptiles such as the gila monster, chuckwalla and the common kingsnake. A chuckwalla is a large lizard with loose folds of skin around its upper body and is active by day. When this animal is threatened it will retreat to a narrow crevice and wedge itself between the sides, gulping air and pumping itself up as a form of protection. The Gila monster is another lizard that is active during the day. It is the largest and the only venomous lizard in the United States. It ranges, in length, from eighteen to twenty-four inches. The venom of the Gila monster is painful but it rarely causes death. The common kingsnake is a black snake with white bands This snake will bite other snakes and lizards behind the head then coil around them.

Besides the elements of form, there are elements of color, for here the colors of the heavens are rivaled by the colors of the rocks.
