The Wildlife Of The Rocky Mountains

The likelihood of your running into wildlife during your stay in the mountains of Colorado is fairly high. You are not very likely, however to run into anything dangerous. Most of the animals you see on your trip will be of the cute cartoon variety. Harmless creatures such as rabbits, squirrels and chipmunks are sure to show up for a good photo-op. You should still be aware of the possibility of an encounter with animals which are not quite so harmless. Here is a break down of some of the animals you may cross paths with and what to do in that event.

Never feed animals in the wild, no matter how adorable they may be. Animals that grow accustomed to regular feedings by people have difficulty fending for them selves in the wild. In the long run, you are doing far more harm to wild animals then good by feeding them.
