     Many species of wildlife are visible from (and on) Wyoming's roads. Deer and other wildlife can also be frequently seen within many of Wyoming's cities and towns. Use care while driving, particularly at night.

     Some wildlife, such as moose, are unpredicatable. Be careful not to get too close when viewing or photographing these animals.
