What to Watch

If you want to find wildlife in Montana, this is a great place to start. Learn about the state's major species, where to see them, and more.

In Montana, everyone has a few wild neighbors. We're not talking about the typical wild neighbors who throw all-night parties; we're referring to antelope, elk, moose, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, eagles, trumpeter swans, bears, wolves, and more. In fact, Montana has a greater variety of wildlife than any other state in the lower 48. Think of us as a giant, natural animal preserve.
