The smoky mountains

Lying along the border between Tennessee and North Carolina, these mountains are part of the Appalachian mountains. There are thoughts about what about 1,500 black bears within the park, which gives a density of about two Bears per square mile. There is a total of 65 different mammal species but the most common other ones seen include, whitetail deer, groundhog, and chipmunk. There are also species like the flying squirrel and the red squirrel.

There are over 200 bird species with around 120 resident, the rest migrating. 

While visitors are likely to get close to wildlife, due to the dence forests they may not always be aware.
