Wonderful wildlife can be observed in America’s Outback by the respectful traveler. Jackrabbits, cotton tails, ground squirrels, kangaroo rats and other mice and many lizard species are very common. Coyotes and bobcats are also plentiful but less easy to spot. In higher elevations, mountain lion, Dahl sheep, ringtail cats and other species and more are there if you know how to look. Some species, such as the desert pupfish and tortoise are endangered and only found in this area. Please be very respectful of all wildlife, and never offer human food, destroy habitats, or try to touch wildlife. For example, picking up a desert tortoise is guaranteed to result in its death.
