This is NOT a real armadillo

We’ve seen a surprising number of the mammals that live in Texas on our ranch! And, by the way, we also have cattle, horses, a donkey, dogs, and chickens. The list below are the non-domesticated ones, and this is not all of them. When I write a blog post about something, I’ll link to it from here.

  • Armadillo, Banded (lives over by where the creek and fence intersect, judging by digging evidence)
  • Bats (probably Mexican free-tail)
  • Bobcat
  • Mountain lion (or something huge, with a tail) (most recently, November 25, 2018, sighted by Christi)
  • Cottontail rabbit (11/25/18)
  • Coyote
  • Deer, White-tailed
  • Hog, feral
  • Jackrabbit (twice!)
  • Mouse, field
  • Opossum (marsupial)
  • Otter, River (3 times!)
  • Raccoon
  • Rat
  • Skunk, Two Striped (dog encounter, May 1, 2018)
  • Squirrel (not that many)
