The United States is one of a few countries that has two national animals. The first one is the well-known Bald Eagle. Once upon extinction, the Bald Eagle population has increased in recent years. The Bald Eagle swoops down upon the rivers or lakes and then snatches the fish from the water with its talons. This bird used to live near the large bodies of an open water area with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for their nesting. The Bald Eagle was chosen as the National Bird because of its association with authority and statehood. These birds are beautiful fliers and have a unique beauty.
Mountain Lions are also known by the names, i.e., Puma or Cougars. They are highly energetic predators having excellent stamina. A Cougar also consists of deadly hunting techniques. It is listed on 4th position among the big cats of the world. This cat is muscular, strengthful, and a lethal predator. Cougars might be beautiful, lovely, and simple-natured, but they are counted in the list of the most dangerous predators. They are also at the top of the food chain. They are good climbers also, as they have been seen climbing in the mountainous regions of Alaska.
Grey Wolves are hard to spot in the United States. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service estimates the total population of Grey Wolves at around 13,000, including Alaska. For the best chance to see a Grey Wolf in the U.S., we should visit Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks in North America. Grey Wolves are at the top of the food chain, and they used to hunt down Elks, Deers, and Rabbits with the help of their pack.
The biggest mammal living in North America is the American Bison. They weigh almost 1200 kgs and are the giant herbivores of Alaska and Yellowstone National Park. With a herd of nearly 5000 Bison, Yellowstone National Park is the best place to see an American Bison in the United States. The Lamar and Hayden Valleys are the most consistent area of Bison sightings. The National Bison Range in Montana is another good place to view American Bisons. They are considered the second national animal of the U.S.A.
Beavers are water mammals. They are usually herbivores and efficient swimmers. They used to make nests for their offspring with the help of dead trees. The Beaver is found in most the U.S. states near rivers, marshes, ponds, and other slow-moving bodies of water. They are primarily active at night and used to slap their tails to warn of danger before they can be seen.
American Black Bear
American Black Bears are genuinely carnivores. They used to feed plants, fruits, vegetation, small mammals, and fishes. They look so beautiful but can be dangerous if we go close to them. Their black-coated, long fur helps them to survive in cold winters. They are the most widely distributed bear species in the United States. The Black Bear is commonly seen on trees, forests, swamps, and mountains, particularly in the northeastern United States. Black Bears are also found throughout the midwest, rocky mountainous regions, and as far south as Georgia.
