Animals

The fields, forests, waterways and trails of Horseshoe Bend NMP offer excellent opportunities to observe animals in their natural habitat. While visiting the park, expect to see an abundance of White-tailed deer, wild turkey and squirrel, along with a diverse population of snakes, turtles and toads. The park is also home to armadillos, foxes and coyotes, although due to their nocturnal way of life are a rare yet exciting sight. We encourage visitors to observe with respect the wildlife at Horseshoe Bend NMP, keeping in mind that these animals play a vital role in the environment of the park. By protecting and respecting nature, places such as Horseshoe Bend NMP can continue to thrive.
