Have you heard about The Great Smokey Mountains and things associated with it

The Great Smokey Mountains offer more than just an abundance of trees and waterfalls. It offers wildlife in abundance. Come and see everything there is to see, you will not regret it. There is beauty everywhere, you just open your eyes. This park has many unique animals, so grab your camera.

During the arrival of spring comes a very interesting animal. Lizards are plentiful in Smokey and five species are located in this park. The blue tail skink is one of the most interesting. It has an almost neon glow, as it basks on the rocks in search of warmth and displaying its blue tail. This lizard has a very vivid lines down the back, and only the tail, the blue color. The bright blue color only in the most immature lizards. In the event that the lizard should have to defend itself is something of a strategy. It literally throws his tail and leave it on the ground. For several moments, vibrate its tail as if it were still there. The tail grows fast, and everything is restored. Fortunately for us, this lizard is not very shy. It converts an ordinary camp next to the visitors in the park.

The National Park has many more animals than to see a simple, yet wonderful, small lizards. There are 66 species of mammals, 200 bird species and 50 species of fish from this area. Together with the blue tail skink, there are over 80 species of amphibians and reptiles. The symbol of Smokey Mountain National Park is the Black Bear. It was here long before any of us started with a visit to the park and should be treated with respect. They are incredible to watch ... from afar. I have a few encounters with bears in the park, and it can be a daunting experience. The park has the largest population of black bears in the eastern United States. There are estimates of more than 1,500 one hundred bears, who are here.

I was within range of a whitetail deer on a trail called alumnus Cave. The worst thing to happen, they had a deer in the park is the ability to scare flash photography. The isolation and the general geography of the country, allowing animals usually found in more northern parts of the country to live here. There are 700 one hundred miles of running water that incredible environment creates a wonderful trout. Any fishermen out there?

So bring your camera, bring your friends, and most of all bring respect for each animal here in the Great Smokey Mountain National Park. Leave you with a smile on your face.
