Cameras capture wildlife in the Coronado National Forest

Many different wildlife lives in the Coronado National Forest.

Now we're able to see some of the diverse animals that call it home.

The Coronado National Memorial has some wildlife cameras set up near one of its ponds and they captured some amazing shots of the visitors of the forest.

One camera shows a black bear, dated May 2010.

We also see a mountain lion, roaming the area in September 2011.

The camera captured some more photos of a mountain lion in August 2012.

It's unclear if it's the same one seen before.

A bobcat was also seen walking around a dry wash in July 2012.

Even a bighorn sheep made an appearance.

Officials say they don't usually see bighorn sheeps in this part of the Coronado National Forest.

They wonder if it's visiting from Mexico.

The cameras also captured shots of other animals, like the ringtail cat, a fox and javalinas living in the forest.
