One of our first wildlife encounters was with coyotes. The coyotes in Yellowstone eat a much better diet than urban coyotes.
Hence, they are bigger with much more attractive coats.
Wolves and foxes listen for rodents through the snow and then pounce through the snow to try to catch their prey.
Winter is a tough time for bison. The ground is covered with snow and the grass is dead. The only way to get to the grass is to
use their heads to plow away the snow, moving their heads side to side.
|There are a lot of wild sheep in Yellowstone.
The big surprise of this trip was a close encounter with a Bob Cat in the Lamar Valley.
There are lots of elk around Gardiner which is in a rain shadow.
