If you have any questions about the wildlife of Annapolis, you can contact the Maryland Wildlife Commission, sometimes called the Maryland Fish & Wildlife Agency. Maryland game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and Annapolis wildlife management. They deal with wild animals outside the range of a pest control company, such as cougars or bears. If you have a problem with nuisance wildlife in Annapolis like squirrels, snakes, bats, or raccoons, the state agency is very unlikely to help. You need to hire a private company (here are their prices) such as Adcock's Trapping at 410-774-5789.

Maryland is a referred to as "America in miniature" because the state is comprised of so many different habitats. It has sand dunes and sea grass, marshlands with cypress trees, oak-covered hills, and pine forests in the mountainous regions. Oddly enough, though it is certainly diverse, there are no natural lakes in Maryland. The state has plenty of ponds, but glacier activity in the United States did not extend down as far as Maryland, thus no large craters were carved out of the landscape. There are now numerous man-made lakes and reservoirs.
Maryland has a variety of animals, and not all of them are native to the state. Wild horses, for example, are living on the islands off the coast of the state, but the equine species was not native to the country. The horses are the offspring of Spanish stock brought over by explorers. The animals are allowed to live on the islands because of their historical importance.
Another non-native creature is the sika deer. This is another species that was introduced originally on the islands off the coast. The sika deer is much lighter in frame and body than the indigenous white-tailed deer. The largest grazer in Maryland is the American elk, a species that is native to the region.
There are no grazers larger than the elk and wild horses. There are, however, the same large predators found in many of the other states. Maryland has black bears, coyotes, cougars, and wolves. Though the populations of these large creatures are minimal, the more humans continue to populate Maryland, the more frequent encounters will be.
Maryland has a host of other animals including fishers, a weasel-like animal that lives in forested areas. Along the same lines are river otter, mink, and ermine.
Common animals include raccoons, striped skunks, foxes, nutria, squirrels, porcupines, opossums, woodchucks, voles, moles, mice, and rats.
Maryland is also a coastal state, and it has a variety of marine life. Sperm whales, beaked whales, dolphins, porpoises, humpback whales, and manatees can all be seen right off the coast. Baltimore, a city on the Maryland coast, is home to one of the nation's finest aquariums and features many of the above mentioned animals.
