Visitors to Dead Horse Point State Park often ask us, “Where are the animals?” or, “Why doesn’t anything live here?” Well, the park is home to a variety of wildlife! The problem is that, because we live in a hot desert, most of the wildlife here is either nocturnal or crepuscular. Since humans are mostly active during the day, we don’t get to see a lot of these nighttime critters!
Rangers at Dead Horse Point have set up a trail camera in remote areas of the park and near potholes, which are rare, natural water sources (more on those in a later post!). The camera caught a few animals, pictured below. As you can see below, the camera did not go unnoticed!
