Burro
The American burro is just one of many animals found at the Bearizona Wildlife Park in Williams. Bearizona features a wide variety of North American animals. Visitors can experience a scenic three-mile drive in their own vehicle and observe animals in a natural environment.

A black bear cub shakes its fur after jumping into a pool of water at Fort Bearizona, which rests inside Bearizona Wildlife Park in Williams, Ariz. Visitors can leisurely stroll through the forest along winding walkways to get an up-close look at younger and smaller animals. Female black bears usually breed every other year and cubs are born from early January to mid-February weighing from half to three quarters of a pound. One to four cubs are born at a time and are raised by their mother for about a year and a half. The black bear is North America’s most familiar and common bear. They typically live in forests and are excellent tree climbers, but are also found in mountains and swamps. Despite their name, black bears can be blue-gray or blue-black, brown, cinnamon or, in rare circumstances, white.

American Bison can be found living in grasslands, forests and scrub forests. Once found roaming throughout most of the United States, they were nearly hunted to extinction. They have recovered in smaller geographical areas with large wild herds in western South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana.
