The Foothills Fescue Wildlife
The fauna of the Foothills Fescue Subregion is
not as extensive as the other Subregions of the Grassland Natural
Region. Upland wildlife is most diverse on the extensive plateaus of the
Cypress Hills and the Milk River Ridge.
Wildlife in the forests and shrublands of the southwestern rivers is similar to that of the Milk River in the Mixedgrass
Subregion. Along the western edge of the Foothills Fescue Subregion, some
Rocky Mountain species occur.
