Wildlife In The Smokies All Type Of Smokey Mountain Wildlife

     If you love wildlife...the Great Smoky Mountains Nation Park is for YOU!  Home to 66 species of mammals, 200+ birds and even 80 types of amphibians and reptiles!

     Although the winter season offer a less obstructed view (with the leaves of deciduous trees fallen), the best chances of year around sightings of wildlife are in clear or open areas such as Cades Cove or Cataloochee, these would be great choices to see black bears, white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, woodchucks, raccoons, opossum and other animals. 

     The best times to see wildlife are in the early morning hours, or just before dusk, and the authors have found HUNDREDS of white-tail deer visible while developing our DiscoverCadesCove.com virtual tour.  Many times just sitting perfectly quite aside a ridge or where the forest meets a clearing, will result in you finding wildlife.

     Remember to always keep a distance between you and wildlife and NEVER EVER feed ANY of the wildlife.  Feeding that 'cute' bear will many times result in that 'cute' bears death due to the bear being conditioned to associate food with people.  A good rule of thumb is: If you cause the wildlife you are viewing to change its behavior in ANY way, you are probably much TOO close.

STRANGE Tennessee Law:

 In Tennessee, no one is allowed to keep any animal as a pet taken from the wild, which to many people's surprise includes tadpoles, frogs, lizards, snakes, turtles, baby birds, squirrels, raccoons, and young deer. If the animal is injured, call the nearest of TWRA's four Regional Offices for a list of permitted rehabilitators, who will keep the animal until it can be returned to the wild. If it cannot be returned, the rehabilitator will turn the animal over to someone with a special Educator's Permit, who may be able to use the animal in a classroom or teaching setting.
