Animals in Utah

Utah comprises three central geographical regions: the Rocky Mountains, the Great Basin near the Nevada-Arizona border, and the Colorado Plateau near the eastern border with Colorado.

The Great Salt Lake, in the north, is perhaps the most exciting feature of the landscape. It is a remnant of an ancient lake called Bonneville.

Although much of the country is hilly and deserted, Utah offers biodiversity and geographical diversity. Its borders include arid deserts, deep ravines, vast pine forests, swamps, and high mountains.
