This document is the result of a study of the terrestrial mammals found at Cedar Breaks National Monument from 2017-2019. During this time, we conducted a survey of mammals using a series of trail cameras. We used survey results to provide an index of terrestrial mammals (excluding bats) within the park. Our goal is to provide a beginner’s guide to the mammals at Cedar Breaks National Monument. We include information regarding appearance, diet, habitat, and population status according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The guide represents the species a visitor to Cedar Breaks National Monument will most likely encounter during a visit. In addition to the traditional photographs, we provide many photos collected during our study. In some cases, these photos may be of lesser quality, but they provide a realistic example of what these species look like at the park, and while they are on-the-move.
