Species at White River National Wildlife Refuge
These wildlife checklists were revised by Richard Hines, Refuge Biologist, in August 2005. They are a list of birds, mammals, fish, reptiles and amphibians that have been observed at White River National Wildlife Refuge. The species' common and scientific names are listed.

Mammals on the White River NWR consist of bats, opossums, raccoons, armadillos, rabbits, weasels, hoofed mammals, bears, felines, and canines.
Reptiles and amphibians on the White River NWR consist of toads, true and tree frogs, newts, salamanders, turtles, lizards, venomous and nonvenomous snakes, and American alligators.
Fish on the White River NWR consist of Sturgeons, Gars, Pikes, Suckers, Pirate Perches, Temperate Basses, Sunfishes, Perches, etc...
This list was compiled by Refuge Forester James Kellum in the winter of 2003. It includes the common and scientific names of trees, shrubs, vines, and herbaceous plants that are found on the refuge.
