Sizeable herds of deer and elk use the Flat Tops area as summer range.
Other species include black bear, fox, coyote, bobcat, pine marten, mink, beaver, showshoe hare,
marmot and pika. On rare occasions, moose, bighorn sheep and mountain lions can be seen.

All pictures you see here are "wild" wildlife. None of the standard
"wildlife ranch" pictures were used. We feel the public should have the opportunity to
see nature exactly as you will see it if you're patient enough. The video "Island Of The Rockies",
Sights and Sounds of the Flattops Wilderness also contains totally free and natural wildlife and includes
footage exclusively found within the boundaries of the Flattops Wilderness.
