Be sure visit our sister park, Carlsbad Caverns National Park. It is located South of Carlsbad, NM. It is a great park to visit and take in the awe of a cave system. From the large "Natural Entrance," to the evening bat flight, it has many wonders to enjoy.
At the northern edge of Carlsbad, New Mexico sits a hidden treasure. Home to more than 40 native animal species and hundreds of succulent plants from around the world. While on the 1.3 mile self-guided tour, visitors discover many faces of the Chihuahuan Desert, from sand dunes and pygmy forest to the desert floor.

Desert coyotes feed on delicacies such as crickets, quail, cactus fruits, rodents, and carrion. Weighing half as much as coyotes elsewhere, they have shorter, thinner, and paler fur which not only blends with the barren landscape, but also helps dissipate heat.
