Bandelier National Monument is home to over 55 species of mammals including sixteen species of bats, mule deer, Abert's squirrels, and mountain lions. Other mammals such as wolves and Grizzly bear used to roam the park's canyons and mesas but were eradicated by human activities. Recently several species (big-horned sheep and river otter) were reintroduced into the area after a long absence.
