Reply to "rivers in the USA vs rivers of the USA"

1) This animal can be found in the snowy regions of the USA

2) This animal can be found in the snowy regions in the USA

I find (1) to be more natural and correct than (2). This might be because there is another "in" and, on top of that, because "of" expresses possession more clearly than the sentence about "rivers" (the USA is made up of different regions, and we can find this animal in its snowy areas).
