P is for Pronghorn

A Pronghorn stands in a grassy meadow.

Pronghorn are the fastest runners in Yellowstone. When they need to, they can run at 70 miles per hour (113 kph) for three to four minutes. That's as fast as most cars go on the highway.

 

Did You Know?

Fishing Bridge.

You cannot fish from Fishing Bridge. Until 1973 this was a very popular fishing location since the bridge crossed the Yellowstone River above a cutthroat trout spawning area. It is now a popular place to observe fish.
