Great Basin National Park Animals

Great Basin National Park contains a wide diversity of animal life due to the large elevational changes in the park. The park begins in a low elevation area dominated by plants such as sagebrush, pinyon pines, and junipers. As you ascend, running streams, mountain meadows, fir, aspen, spruce, and large pines become more common. Eventually you reach high above treeline and can venture into the alpine area of low, delicate plants and rocky outcroppings. An abundance of wildlife has taken advantage of these various habitat zones. Please see the following species lists for more specific information.
