Late Holocene diet of Bassariscus astutus in the Grand Canyon, Arizona.
Up to 11 species of mammalian carnivores occur in forested ecosystems of Grand Canyon National Park: cougar Puma concolor, American black bear Ursus americanus, coyote Canis latrans, bobcat Lynx rufus, gray fox Urocyon cinereoargenteus, American badger Taxidea taxus, raccoon Procyon lotor, striped skunk Mephitis mephitis, western spotted skunk Spilogale gracilis, ringtail Bassariscus astutus, and long-tailed weasel Mustela frenata.
Fur prices during that season for primarily sought species (raccoon, Procyon lotor, ringtail, Bassariscus astutus, red fox, Vulpes vulpes, gray fox, Urocyon cinereoargenteus, and bobcat, Felis rufus) declined 29 percent relative to average prices of the previous three years (Perkins, 1989).
In Texas, the ringtail, Bassariscus astutus, occurs mainly in the central portion of the state.
