Animal Life

The animals found in the Rocky Mountains vary from location to location because of how large it is. There are 66 mammals species that get to call the Rocky Mountains their home. Black bears, coyotes, elk, marmots, mountain lions, bighorn sheep and moose also live in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Length

The Rocky Mountain Range actually represents a series of more than 100 separate mountain ranges, rather than one uninterrupted mountain chain. These ranges stretch through New Mexico, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah and Colorado, and also extend into British Columbia and Alberta, Canada. The entire series of mountain ranges measures approximately 3,000 miles.
