You can potentially see many different species of mammals on the bearcams. Watch for river otters, minks, and maybe even a beaver swimming through the river. Ermines, lynx, foxes, and wolves sometimes patrol the stream bank. Wolves have even fished for salmon at Brooks Falls right next to the bears. Moose are present in the park, but are rarely seen in the Brooks Camp area. For a list of Katmai’s mammals click here.
