The U.S. Bureau of Land Management has erected "critter cams" near water tanks along Colorado's Front Range. The cameras have imaged an array of wildlife.
DENVER, CO (Catholic Online) - The cameras have photographed bears, mountain lions, and a wide variety of other local wildlife as the animals seek water.
One by one, the critters approach water tanks, hoping to find some water to slake their thirst.
Biologists are using the cameras to determine how the animals use their habitats, modified by human development.
The BLM is now sharing the photos through its Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr accounts.
