Even though you might not see them on the trail, Montezuma Well and Castle are home to many mammals. Check out these photos for an idea of who lives here.
Ringtails are secretive nocturnal predators that are seldom seen. Members of the raccoon family (Procyonidae), these shy mammals spend the day hiding in caves and tree hollows. They can occasionally be spotted scampering along the walls of Montezuma Castle (where this one was photographed) or in the Swallet Ruin at Montezuma Well.
