Animals you should photograph while you are in Texas

Texas is known for many autochthonous birds and animals, as well as introduced species. In Texas are found more than 140 species of animals, including some that are very rare. So, if you manage to photograph some of the extremely rare species, you are a lucky man. 

Armadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus) – one of the most interesting Texas’s mammals is the nine-year-old armadillo. We can find this animal in most of the state except in the western Trans-Pecos. This is now commonplace as far east and north as Mississippi and Oklahoma. 

Badger (Taxidea taxus) – it is found in parts of South and West Texas though they periodically are sighted in the eastern parts of Texas.It is a severe fighter and it is useful in helping control the rodent population. 

Bat – In Texas has been found thirty-two species of these winger animals, more than in any other state in the U.S. Of these 32 species, 27 are known residents although you can barely see them. Free-tailed bat, also known as a Brazilian or Mexican bat and the cave myotis constitute most of the cave-dwelling bats of West and Central Texas. They can be found at twilight near a source of water and many species may also be seen searching for insects attracted to street lights. 

Bear (Urus americanus) – The black bear earlier usual through most of the country, is now surviving in rest populations in parts of the Trans-Pecos. Lately, some have been moving from near countries into East Texas. 

Cat – The jaguar is presumably extinct in Texas an as well as the margay, ocelot, and jaguarondi is indicated as rare and jeopardize by state and federal wildlife agencies. The cougar, also known as a mountain lion or puma, was once found nationwide. The leopard cat (the ocelot) is found commonly along the border. The jaguarundi ( red-and-gray cat) is found in South Texas.The only cat which can be found in large numbers all over the state is Lunx ruffus or the bobcat.  


The most important Texas animal can be found all over the country in wooded or bristly areas. That is the white-tailed deer. The population of these animals is estimated at more than 3 million. The mule deer can be found mostly in the Panhandle and Trans-Pecos areas. In recent years, this type of beer has increased in number.Mostly for hunting intent, a certain number of deer species have been introduced. 


The Atlantic spotted dolphin is pretty much small. It is gray purplish, looks like black on a distance, mostly with little gray or white spots on its back. This dolphin is second in ampleness, In the Mexican Bay. 


The usual gray fox can be found across most of the country, particularly in the forests of East Texas, in parts of the Edwards Plateau and at the foothill of the High Plains. The Swift fox can be found in the western 1/3 of the country. 

If you are in Texas and you love animals, you probably should bring your camera. There are countless interesting animals in this part of the United States, so you should probably have a photo camera with a big available storage.
