Wildlife is abundant at Devils Tower National Monument. Wildflowers, sedges and occasional shrubs provide food and habitat for mammals, birds, reptiles, insects, and amphibians. Black-tailed prairie dogs make their home in the soft alluvial soil along the river. Even the Tower provides homes for swallows, rock doves, and chipmunks.
Did You Know?
When the proclamation establishing Devils Tower was published, the apostrophe was unintentionally dropped from “Devil’s”—and this clerical error was never officially corrected.
