Devils Tower National Monument is home to a diverse population of mammals. As you visit the park, step quietly: you may glimpse white-tailed deer ghosting through the ponderosa pine forest, hear the cries of the prairie dog as they scramble into their dens on the floodplain, or see mice dart between boulders at the base of the Tower.
Rodents and Shrews
Rodents and shrews comprise the largest variety of species within the park, and the smallest animals by body type!
Canines, Felines & Raccoons
The canines and other carnivores of Devils Tower National Monument are naturally elusive creatures.
The cracks and boulders of the Tower, as well as the surrounding forest, are vital to a healthy bat population at Devils Tower.
