Great horned owls are just one of the species that claim Arizona as their home. Though few would be surprised to hear that bald eagles, giant lizards, mountain lions, and snakes roam free across the state, large populations of deer, antelope, elk, and black bears also occupy territory in the more temperate climates of central and northern Arizona. The aforementioned Coconino National Forest is an obvious spot to see a wide variety of both flora and fauna, as are Vermilion Cliffs National Monument and the Havasu National Wildlife Refuge (among many others).
