Yellowstone Wildlife Guide

It would be unusual to visit Yellowstone without seeing wildlife. So that you will have the best chance of seeing the wildlife that you wish to see, we provide a map for locating different types of wildlife. These are certainly not the only areas where you will find these animals, but these are the areas where the different types of wildlife have been the most prevalent in recent years.

Bighorn Sheep are most often seen north of Mammoth Hot Springs but have also been seen frequently in the Lamar Valley, on the northeast entrance road in the same area as the wolves.

Black Bear are best seen in the Tower/Roosevelt area between May and June.

Buffalo can be seen in many areas of the Park. In addition to the three areas on the map, they are almost always in the Lamar Valley.

Elk are not represented on this map because they are so abundant throughout the Park.

Grizzlies are more difficult to find since the death of Bear 264 in 2003.

Moose are not represented on this map because sightings are not common. They are best viewed in the Jackson Hole area.

Mountain Goats have only recently moved into the Park and can be seen at Barronette Peak.

Wolves are commonly seen in the Lamar Valley and have been often sighted on Swan Lake Flats.

The map only shows large species.
